While log burner ventilation might not be something you have given a huge amount of thought to, it is actually a really important element when it comes to the installation and ongoing maintenance of your log burning stove. 

Not only do the building regulations set out certain requirements when it comes to fitting log burning stoves, but putting the right ventilation measures in place will also mean that your stove works at peak efficiency and that the air quality inside your home remains at a decent level.
