Installing a gas stove
When installing your new gas stove, there are a number of general installation rules you need to observe. Always look into national legislation, and read the instructions in the stove's installation instructions.
Things you should know when considering a gas stove:
- You may not install your gas stove yourself. The installation must be done and approved by an authorised gas technician.
- The chimney of a gas stove has two parts, i.e. it is two ducts in one: One that draws cold air in and one that sends fumes out. This means that a gas stove works in a closed system that doesn't affect the indoor climate in the room. Therefore, there are no requirements regarding draught in the chimney or the amount of air in the room in which you are installing the stove.
- It also means that installation of a gas stove doesn't require nearly as high a chimney as a traditional wood-burning stove does. For more information on this topic, refer to the national legislation or contact your nearest dealer.
- If you have an existing fireplace and chimney, a gas stove can often be placed inside. Contact your dealer for further information.
- Note that you can get a chimney for the gas stove in the same colour as the stove. Contact your RAIS dealer.
- Before starting the installation, check whether the floor can support the weight of the gas stove and chimney.
- You don't have to think about whether the floor under the stove is flammable and you will not need a floor plate in front of the stove.
- Never make modifications in the gas stove's technical functions yourself. Unauthorised modifications or incorrect installation can lead to risk when using the gas stove and can render the warranty void.
