I am new here so I hope this is in the right place.
We are nearly ready to install a multi fuel wood burning stove into our home, we currently have a back bolier behind a gas fire which will be stripped out later this week.
I have heard conflicting information on whether we need to have a terracota chimney pot on the top of our chimney, at first I thought we could just have a metal cowl with bird mesh round it, however the guy who is coming to help fit it is now saying that we definitely need a terracota pot but they seem an unecessary expence. If our chimney is ok we are planning on not getting it lined. Can you help please?
Thanks in advance.
