Can You Have a Log Burner Without a Chimney?
It is a common misconception that if you do not have a built-in chimney in your home or property, it is not possible to have a log burner. This is not the case.
One of the most common methods to have a log burner no chimney home is by installing a flue system. A flue system acts as a chimney replacement and safely vents the smoke and gases produced by the log burner outside.
There are different types of flue systems available, including twin-wall insulated flues and flexible liners. The choice depends on your specific requirements and home layout, and a type will be recommended by our team of professionals.
