Wood Burning Stove Installation and Planning Permission
You are required to notify and obtain approval by your Local Authority Building Control department for many home jobs in order to make sure that the works carried out comply with the Building Regulations. Since 2005, this also counts for installation and replacement of a heating system or boiler including wood burning stoves.
What Happens if You Do Not Notify Your Local Authority Building Control Department about Wood Burning Stove Installation?
A certification that your newly installed wood burning stove complies with the Building Regulations of course involves a fee which further increases the costs of installation. But what if you install your new wood burning stove without notifying your Local Authority Building Control department? After all, how will they know? There are several reasons why this is not a good idea including:
The risk of a fine. If you do not obtain an approval for installation of your wood burning stove by the Building Control, it is not legal. If your Local Authority Building Control department finds out about it, you can be fined up to £5,000. The certification that the newly installed stove complies with the Building Regulations, on the other hand, will probably cost you less than £300, so it really is not worth to take the risk.
Installation may not be safe. The Building Regulations are not intended just to charge home owners for works in their homes but to ensure their own and the general population’s safety. If the work is not inspected and approved by the Building Control department, you cannot really know for sure that the stove is installed safely. And besides posing a potential risk to your health and property, the installation may not meet energy efficiency standards.
Problems with insurance claims. Many insurance companies want to know about works in your home such as installation of a wood burning stoves. And this includes documentation that the work complies with the Building Regulations. Obviously, you cannot tell your insurance company that you have installed a wood burning stove that was not approved by the Building Control which in turn can cause you serious problems with insurance claims.
Problems when selling your home. If you ever decide to sell your home, you will highly likely to be asked to provide documentation that it meets the Building Regulations. But if you do not notify the Building Control department about wood burning stove installation, you obviously will not be able to provide all the necessary certificates.
We strongly advise you to notify your Local Authority Building Control department about installation of a wood burning stove or have it installed by a registered installer from a Competent Person Scheme such as Hetas if you live in England or Wales, or INFO if you live in Ireland for instance. In the latter case, you do not have to tell the Building Control department about installation of a new stove because registered installers from a Competent Person Scheme are allowed to self-certificate their work and will take care of the necessary documentation for you.
