HETAS Listed Chimney Product
Listed Chimney Products form an integral part of the HETAS Guide and an increasing number of UK and international manufacturers and distributors are contacting us to have their products assessed. Any product going through the process allows the manufacturer to use the HETAS Listed Chimney Product logo in their promotion of it. Use of the logo and showing in the HETAS Guide and on the HETAS website show installers and consumers that these products are safe for use with solid fuel appliances and with the proper maintenance will work in tandem with them providing many years of trouble-free use.
