You will simply need to cut the plate to size to fit into your chimney opening.

    *Excludes electric stoves, flueless and balanced flue gas stoves - as these are not required.

    Optional Extras.

    Carbon Monoxide Detector:

    Due to an update to Building Regulations it is now law to have a Carbon Monoxide alarm present in any room with a solid fuel appliance:- The Building Regulations 2000 Approved Document J (2010 Edition) '2.34 Where a new or replacement fixed solid fuel appliance is installed in the dwelling, a carbon monoxide alarm should be provided in the room where the appliance is located.' 


    Flue Liner Packs:

    The flue liner pack consists of; a nose cone, to easily manoeuvre the flue liner into place, a flue adaptor, which connects the stove pipe to the flexible flue liner, Dura Flue flexible flue liner (this is 6" in diameter and 316 Grade) cut to the required length and a 6" pot hanger rain cap, this supports the flue liner from the top of the chimney and also acts as a bird guard and rain cap.



    Stove Pipe with Door:

    A stove pipe with door or access point, allows the chimney to be swept through the pipe itself.  




    Stove Glass Insurance:

    If you select to take out our stove glass insurance this covers your stove glass for the time period you select. If your glass breaks within that time period we will send you a replacement piece of glass regardless of the reason the glass broke. All we will ask is that you send a picture of the broken glass.
    The insurance only covers you for one replacement piece of glass. It doesn't cover you if you break the replacement piece of glass.
    All stove glass is covered during delivery and any glass broken in transit to you will be replaced free of charge, without affecting your stove glass insurance.



    Please make the relevant selection above when placing your order if you require any of these parts and also select whether or not you require a Carbon Monoxide alarm sending out with your order. Please note that if these parts aren't selected with your order we can't send them for free after your order has been delivered.

  • Delivery Info
    Free 1 Man Delivery

    Our "Free Delivery" is a one man service. The goods will arrive on a lorry that is about the size of a fire engine. (Please let us know in advance if you have restricted access.).

    The lorry has a tail lift that allows the driver to get the stove/oven off the vehicle, the stove/oven will be packed on a pallet and the driver will have a pallet truck.

    He'll be able wheel this as close as possible to your property, if you have a garage he'll be able to wheel it into there for you.

    The pallet truck can only be wheeled over a finished surface so it's not possible to wheel it over a gravelled drive nor is it possible to wheel up or down steps.

    The pallets are normally about a 1m wide so this is the minimum width gate they can fit through. Please note that the driver is not insured to unpack or carry the stove/oven into your house.

    If the goods are showing 24hr or 48hr delivery then this is the quickest time we're able to deliver these items. You'll be asked to select your a delivery date when purchasing the goods.

    Please note that it is an all day delivery.

    Two Man Delivery (£60)

    As the name suggests with our two man delivery service the goods will be delivered by two men. They will carry your stove into the room of your choice where possible. If the hallway is to narrow or they feel that they can’t fit it through the doorway safely they might not be able to get it into the room.

    They will normally carry it up 1 flight of stairs (if it's safe to do so) but this is at their discretion so if you have a 3rd floor flat please inform us before hand to avoid any issues during delivery.

    The two man delivery normally take 5 - 10 working days to be delivered from dispatch. Once the goods are in stock you will be contacted and delivery arranged.

    If I get a stove in Almond does the rear flue adaptor come colour matched?
    Hi Mark,
    Thank you for your question.
    Yes, the vertical rear flue adaptor is the same colour as the stove.
    I've added this to the order section to make it clearer.
    Hope this helps?

    Hello what's the difference between the free flue pipe (1m) offer on the c4 and the vertical rear flue option for £90? Do I need both? Thanks
    Hi Andrea,
    Thank you for your question.
    The vertical rear flue option allows you to make the stove more of a feature by bringing it forward on the hearth by 186mm.
    Please see the description and images on this page - http://www.charnwood.com/range/stove/charnwood-vertical-rear-flue-adaptor.aspx

    If you are fitting your C-Four in a fireplace you can use the top flue with the free stove pipe or use a rear flue with either the vertical flue option and a free pipe or with a T-piece.
    If you are unsure about any aspect fitting a stove, please feel free to contact our stove experts for free impartial advice on 0161 376 4191.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,

    Hello is the flue liner I require for this stove to be 5 or 6 inch for the c-4
    Hi Vicky,
    Thank you for your question.
    If you are going to order the Defra wood burning version of this stove and are never going to burn other solid fuel you can use a 5-inch liner.

    However, if you are going to order the multifuel version and might burn other solid fuel you must use a 6-inch liner.

    We usually send a 6-inch liner with our packs to avoid confusion.
    The pack contains:
    The correct adaptor to fit your stove pipe,
    The liner,
    A nose cone for easier installation,
    A pot hanger rain cap for the top of the chimney.

    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,

    I have read online that 'in some situations can even be installed without the need for external air' - is this correct? If so, in which situations can the burner be installed without the need for external air?
    Hi Alison,
    Thank you for your question.
    The Charnwood C-Four can be installed without external air kit in properties where the air permeability is above 5.0m³/(h.m²).
    If you have a home built before 2008 you can have a C-Four or C-Five stove fitted without an external air kit.
    If your home is built after 2008 and is an "airtight" home you will need to install the stove with an external air kit.
    We recommend getting a Hetas installer to survey your property before buying, they will be able to tell you everything you need for an installation - https://www.hetas.co.uk/find-installer/
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,

    Why does the C4 firebox not have a brick lining. Is it likely for the steel box would rust?
    Thank you for your question.

    The inside of the Charnwood C-Four is lined with vermiculite fire bricks.

    Many Thanks
