Conservatory heating alternative?

Postby 3magnet » Tue Nov 18, 2008 5:57 pm

We have a conservatory built on to our terrace. It covers both the kitchen and dining room exit/entrance doors, which have their own double glazed doors. The flue pipe from the condensing boiler goes through the conservatory roof, "to let off some steam" so to speak. This does not cause any problems.

My query is this: Would it be possible/allowable for me to install an actual wood burning stove in my conservatory as an alternative heating source, with its' flue also going through the roof of the conservatory?

Not a good idea the heat out of the flue would be to exessive plus any sparks would melt the polycarb roof.
Try air conditioning unit can be used to heat as well as cool the conservatory.
