Document J

From 1st October, 2010, Document J became the Government’s ‘Approved Document’ relating to combustion appliances and fuel storage systems in the Building Regulations 2000.

This is a legal document to which all contractors must adhere when working on chimney related projects.

As chimney sweeps and diagnostic engineers we come across a number of instances where work that has been carried out doesn’t meet the regulations set out in Document J. In a few cases, we may have to condemn the appliance/flue/chimney on the basis that it’s simply not safe for you to use. We have provided the following link to Document J for your reference.

    Before Ecco Stove was installed my annual oil bill was £1,350 but Ecco Stove reduced my oil bill to £130 with my wood bill rising slightly to £280. I’m saving just under £1,000 per year on heating alone, and my home is continually warm and cosy.
