Our Project

We were asked to remove an old fire boiler stove and in its place install a small multi-fuel stove. Our customers opted to keep the recess and the bricks surrounding it, therefore, it was important to find a stove that would be a perfect size for the existing recess. Taking that into consideration, our project manager suggested AGA Ludlow.

The Ludlow EC multi-fuel stoves are 2022 compliant and DEFRA approved meaning they meet the latest standards for efficiency and a cleaner burn performance. The Ludlow EC range gives a magnificent flame picture and is beautifully designed with heat outputs from 2kW to 5kW.

Highly efficient with an A+ Efficiency rating, the Ludlow EC5 measure 44cm wide x 54.2cm height, making it ideal for smaller spaces. The Ludlow stoves offer an understated style, classic design, and exquisite detail.



To start with, our operatives provided temporary protection to the floor coverings through the hallway and into the area where the installation was carried out. The old fire boiler stove was removed and lined with a fireboard in preparation for painting by others. The old hearth was also replaced with a 20mm thick decorative slate.

Once the recess works were completed, the flue was swept of debris and lined with a Schiedel 904-grade twin skin flue liner (suitable for multi-fuel stoves).


Then, the AGA Ludlow stove was placed into a position and a galvanised steel plate was fixed to the underside of the recess and sealed between the closure plate and chimney with high-temperature sealant. The stove was connected with the liner using twin wall chimney components as well as a stove pipe. The chimney flue was completed with the installation of a pot hanging cowl.


Once all debris was disposed of and the area where the stove was installed was cleaned, our HETAS registered engineers performed a smoke test using the one and only Firestarter. The smoke test ensures that there is an adequate degree of draw and that all connections are sealed. Finally, in accordance with building regulations, a CO/ Carbon Monoxide Alarm and a chimney notice plate were installed.
