I am moving to a a 1970's house in the next few days and am hoping someone can advise on the work needed to install a high efficiency Flavel inset gas fire.
The original central heating system was a back boiler/fire combination but the previous occupant had a condensing boiler installed elsewhere in the property around 8 years ago. The timber/tiled surround is still there and it is a brick construction chimney with a stainless steel flue liner. I am assuming the opening will have to be altered to accomodate the gas fire (i.e new fireback etc.)
I will be contacting a gas fitter to install the fire but am happy to carry out any building work.The other option is an electric fire but the wife wants a gas fire.
Any advice on what is involved?
