Installation Costs

Contemporary Stoves Guide to Installation Costs

Installation Costs are different and can be very varied but many of the component parts of the installation, and their costs, are fairly consistent. The total Installation Cost will vary according to the STOVE you choose and possibly other items shown at the bottom of the page.

To simplify the calculation we have listed below two simple examples of what the cost of an Installation Cost could be with the 2 main scenarios- that being with and without a chimney breast in a standard height 2 story house.

Installation Costs with an existing chimney breast, which includes lining the chimney, commissioning and handover, Issue Building Control & customer with the compliance certificate starts at around £1000

Installation Costs without a chimney breast, using a twin wall insulated chimney system, commissioning and handover, Issue Building Control & customer with the compliance certificate starts at around £2800

These figures can be broken down to include the following as relevant:

 

With a chimney breast                                                          Approximate cost

Sweep and line the chimney flue, cowl, Closure
Plate, adapters, enamel or s/steel stove pipe with                 £700
or without sweep hatch                                                                       

Install and commission, notice plate, CO alarm
Handover                                                                                        £300

 

Without a chimney breast                                                    Approximate cost

If you have to include any of the below materials/labour it becomes apparent how this will affect the overall cost of the installation
Add on any building works? Add on insulating the flue? Customer to decide. Add on roofing costs? 
Add on fire surround or false chimney breast? Add on the stove cost? Customer to decide.
Add on scaffolding? Add on the flue colour? Customer to decide. Add on the hearth?
Add on boxing in the internal twin wall flue? Add on plastering & decoration?
Add on any electrical work required? Add on ventilation if needed? 

Or anything else not mentioned?
