    A review by the NHBC of technologies used by Housing Associations to improve energy efficiency rates Flue Gas Heat Recovery systems near the top of the list for those that should be considered. Will now consider for large boilers on communal heated sites but also thinking of using one at home. Has anyone fitted one on a woodburner flue? If so did it work? My idea is to plumb it into the thermal store as every little helps.

    I think it's been mentioned before, but don't you have to be careful of reducing flue temp significantly so as not to cause tarring of the flue interior.

    ...and as woodburner works on natural draught too much cooling of the flue gasses will cause the products of combustion to fall back down the chimney

    Good points; think I may stick to gas flues.

    I think I will stick to non combustion technology at home.
