Chimneys & Fireplaces Question
I'm just wondering do I need a HETAS fitter or local authority permission to install a decorative fireplace? One chimney breast has an existing opening and was used as an open fire by the previous owner. The other room used to have a fireplace but has been sealed off? Thanks.
If it purely decorative it is non notifiable and does not need HETAS or building control approval.
Only if you wanted a working fire would you need one of these option.
