There’s no smoke without fire
Wood burning stoves are becoming a popular addition to many mobile homes. Unfortunately not all residents are made aware when they buy a stove that they must either contact building control before commencing any installation works, if they wish to fit it themselves, or employ a HETAS registered installer to fit the stove for them. HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing and Approval Scheme (UK)) is the official body recognised by Government to approve solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels and services including the registration of competent installers and servicing businesses. An incorrectly fitted stove is a potential fire hazard. Contact Tozers today to discuss what action you should take if you discover one of your residents has fitted a stove without taking the appropriate steps.
