I have an open fire with a chimney, checked and in working order. I have bought a multi fuel stove with an exemption certificate for smokeless zones. (NG6). I would like to keep the open fire to use very occasionally, and, as it's quite a big L shaped room, to have the stove installed too. I find you can easily buy these stoves/woodburners, but have great difficulty getting them installed.
My first question is: can I still have my open fire with a chimney [i]and[/i] my stove with a flue in this same room?
