Gas Work

What kind of gas fire is suitable after old back boiler removed?

I've recently had an old back boiler and gas fire removed, and the gas supply capped. I'm now left with an empty space and would like a new gas fire. I'm after finding out what kind of flue will be left behind or if there are any special requirements so I know what fires will be suitable. I will be hiring a gas safe engineer to do the work once I have found one that I like, can afford and will work! Thank you in advance.

Your chimney will have had a flue liner dropped down it for the back boiler.
This liner will need to be removed/replaced for your new fire depending on what type of fire you fit.
Most likely your new gas fire will need the liner removed and the flue tested for soundness.
