Why You Need a CCTV Chimney Survey

Before we can commence the installation process of your new fuel burning stove or fireplace it is necessary to ensure that your flue system is properly prepared. Toxic gasses and smoke are produced from fuel burning appliances and therefore must be directed up the chimney and out of the property. The chimney must have a fully functioning flue system to carry these harmful substances to the outside and replace them with clean fresh air. If your property already has a chimney or flue system installed, it is important to have it investigated by a professional to confirm its functionality. At The Stove and Fireplace Builder we conduct a CCTV Chimney Survey to investigate flue systems.

What is a CCTV Chimney Survey?

CCTV Chimney Survey comprises of professional engineers using flexible cameras to look up inside your existing flue system. This allows a close up view of the system, meaning that any damages or blockages can be identifies. A CCTV Chimney Survey also allows the engineer to note the measurements of the flue system interior. This is necessary to ensure the correct size of flue liner is used for your project. The correct size of flue lining is key to preventing any harmful gasses from escaping into the property.

CCTV Chimney Surveys Allow Us To:

  • Identify the flue system dimensions
  • Establish the best lining system for your flue
  • Check for damages such as past chimney fire damage, extreme weather, or wear and tear
  • View blockages which could arise from fallen debris, animal ness, bends or damages in the existing flue system or any other objects/obstructions
