Here at Opulence Stoves, our service doesn’t end once your stove has been installed. We offer a range of Sweeping and Servicing plans, tailored to the stoves we install, to ensure that the stoves we install continue to work in optimal condition for years to come.

Our in-home service can start from a simple Lighting Demo, which walks you through the best way of getting your stove lit, how to encourage a good burn, and how to ensure your stove burns as cleanly as possible.Stove

Within the first year of having your Stove, and every 12 months thereafter, you are going to need a sweep. Don’t think of it as a cleaning exercise, and don’t think of it as something that needs to be done based on use!

Think of it in terms of a car MOT. Regardless of how much you drive your car, you need a MOT certificate to insure it, and to keep your warranty up to date.

So, what do we do? A few years down the road, your stove may begin to look a bit “tired”. Cleaning out ash can be a dusty business at the best of times, and honestly, who can blame you for overlooking the stove for a clean every now and again…..nor maybe slightly more often?

On top of our standard sweep service, we can give your stove a MOT of its own!

A quick respray, a thorough clean using our professional power-sweeping equipment, and a re-oiling of your slate hearth can make a world of difference.

Oppulence StoveIn the instance on this page, our customer had booked us to come out and sweep and service their stove we had previously fitted. After an inspection of the stove, checking the condition of the glass in the door, the firebricks and the door seal rope throughout, it was decided no parts were in need of replacement.

The Power Sweep was carried out, after fully vacuuming the firebox to rid it of excess ash. Once swept, the stove has a smoke test to ensure all seals are in good condition, and fire cement is replaced in flue connections, as needed. The service side of the visit begins with the initial clear out of the firebox, and then moves onto the stove exterior, where the Sweep resprayed the outside panels of the stove to restore the “day one look” of the stove.

Finally, the stove was given a clean, glass brought up to a shine, ash dust washed away from the surface of the hearth, which was lastly re-sealed with a wipe down of boiled linseed oil.

Just see the results for yourself!

Hi! I’m Jess and I am the showroom manager at Opulence Stoves. I have been working with the family business for the last 9 years, and I love anything that’s different!

I try to keep my eye on the trends within the industry, and one thing that has caught my eye is how many people that are taking their heating outside…

As Summer approaches everyone is thinking about the BBQ’s and garden parties that will take place. I’m a real foodie so anything that guarantees to get the taste buds tingling when I’m there, so I was very curious to learn more about the new outdoor living range from Morso.

The real front runner of this new range is the Morso Forno oven. The outdoor heater, come pizza oven, come grill offers cooking versatility, stylish design and tantalising aromas! You really can taste the difference between this authentic way of cooking compared to a standard BBQ.

The Deluxe Garden Package includes the Forno Oven, Large Garden Table offering a practical preparation and work space, Tuscan Grill, Pizza Peel, and a variety of accessories. They even throw in a cook book to help you get started!

Morso have been market leaders for their innovative designs dating as far back as 1853. They are exceptionally engineered, and offer the user confidence by issuing a 5 year guarantee.

A photo of a Forno OvenBy having a Forno oven you will certainly be the talk of the party and a definite trend setter!

This is a firm favourite of mine so please contact me for further information.

Pumice Flue Systems

Liner Systems for New & Existing Chimneys

Schiedel Liner Systems

The pumice liner system comes in a range of 15 diameters from 150mm to 1000mm internal diameter. The Pumice flue liners are for masonry chimneys where the linings are surrounded by 100mm of brick, block or stone.

The linings are suitable for all fuels but not suitable for condensing appliances –including pellet or biomass.

Pumice liners are ideal for new build as well as relining existing masonry chimneys.

Technical Specification

We have both free-standing stoves and open fire options. Please click below to download the technical specification PDF.

Applications & Installation

Construction begins by providing a suitable foundation and constructional hearth in accordance with Building Regulations and site requirements.

Stove in Recess

Our pre stressed lintels must be installed above the fireplace recess, for this method a support plate is required under the support block.

Alternatively, a suitable cast-in-situ concrete slab lintel can be created above the fireplace recess. (See Isokern standard drawings for hole size depending on diameter of chosen flue).

The support block is bedded onto the slab lintel using weak mix mortar. A stainless-steel adaptor is used to connect from the support block to the stove flue pipe. This adaptor is pushed up onto the support block spigot (fibre rope should be used to create a seal). It is recommended to have a minimum of 600mm length of flue pipe before connecting to the chimney.

Open Fire

Install the firechest onto the constructional hearth using lip glue making sure all elements are level. 100mm of brick or blockwork must be built around the sides and back of the firechest to comply with Building Regulations. The inside of the firechest must be finished with a suitable fireback or firebrick slips.

Install the gather using lip glue making sure all elements are level. The front face of the gather can be finished with plasterboard, rendered or clad in masonry. Lintels may be required above the gather to help carry the brick or blockwork. The maximum loading capacity of the Isokern firechest and gather is 2500kg.

Free Standing Stove

A soot door must be provided below the flue pipe entry to allow for inspection and removal of soot and debris. A suitable wall sleeve is to be used to seal the cavity wall. Any combustible insulation within the wall must be kept away from the single skin connecting flue pipe by at least 1.5 x its diameter.

A stainless-steel adaptor is glued to the Isokern T Liner with lip glue. The flue pipe is a push fit over the spigot on the adaptor. Seal off the gap between the flue pipe and wall sleeve with fire proof rope and closing plate.

All Options

The flue liners are installed socket uppermost and sealed with Isokern lip glue. Lip glue joints should be approximately 2mm thick. A special bag is provided for ease of application. Remove any excess glue to maintain a smooth surface.

Clad the liners with a minimum of 100mm thick suitable masonry. A minimum thickness of 15mm leca insulation must be installed between the liners and masonry. Mix 20 parts leca to 1-part opc cement and a small amount of water. Make sure it is well mixed before using.

If bends are required in the chimney, make sure adequate support is provided and always backfill with leca insulation mix. Liners can be cut between bends to achieve a required offset distance. A steel collar as well as lip glue must be used for any cut joints. A maximum of 2 complete offsets (4 bends) are allowed per chimney and the angle must not be greater than 45˚ from the vertical.

You must provide adequate clearance from combustible material in accordance with Building Regulations. Combustible materials must be 200mm from the inner surface of flue liner or 40mm from the outside of the masonry chimney unless it is a floorboard, skirting board, dado or picture rail, mantel-shelf or architrave. Fit appropriate lead dpc’s and flashings in accordance with the relevant regulations. Isokern recommend that the lead tray should be dressed up the outside of the flue liners to avoid a weak joint.

Weep holes should be provided above the tray for moisture drainage. Terminate the chimney to the correct height in accordance with document J of the Building Regulations. The chimney can be finished by flaunching (1:3 cement/ sharp sand) either around the Isokern flue liner or a suitable chimney pot. Approved rain caps can be used to help prevent water entering the flue.

After Installation, Use & Maintenance

After installation is complete tests and checks should be carried out in accordance with document J of the Building Regulations. A chimney notice plate must be completed and permanently fixed in the dwelling, ideally near the electrical consumer unit. The checklist and notice plate are available from Schiedel Isokern.

The chimney should be left for at least 72 hours before use, then start with only small fires for the first week and gently increase thereafter. The chimney should be swept at least twice a year, once before the heating season and once after the heating season. You may need to sweep during the heating season depending upon use. The brush should be a medium density polypropylene bristle type and should be the same diameter as the flue. Steel brushes must not be used to sweep Isokern pumice flues. Always follow the appliance manufacturer’s operating instructions. Always burn approved fuels or dry seasoned wood. Avoid burning unseasoned wood and slow burning of solid fuels as this can produce excessive soot and condensation which can in turn cause soot fires and damage. If correctly installed, operated and maintained these systems should last the life of the dwelling.
