Building regs only alow 2 x 45 degree bends running for no more than a meter on the angle in one flue. They give me a way to monitor the intensity of the fire in the stove, as I can see fire shooting up the stove pipe and into the heat exchanger.

The one I was given after the service I'm sure was just combustion efficiency, it was just a probe in the exhaust gas stream so it had no idea how much heat was actually being passed in to the system.And since it's so thermally efficient, you wouldn't necessarily need to put it right in the fire; if you had a wood stove for example, you could figure out ways to rig it to the outside of the stove. Hello, I have heard of heating systems that recover some of the heat from the chimney of your woodburner and duct it around the house. It's wise pre-planning to keep a big bucket of sand nearby to dump onto the fire in the fireplace/woodstove to smother it and prevent smoke from filling your house when you close the flue. Even better I've used no kerosene, burned only wood, which comes free to me via the woods out back and pallets picked out of dumpsters. It is important to note that even the most efficient heating appliances let a large quantity of the heat escape up the chimney (flue) in the form of hot air, gases, and smoke.

I wouldn't want to move that from the room my gas boiler is in though (bathroom, in the cupboard which previously housed bath towels and the like, I have just enough room left now for one shelf only 7.

Many boiler stoves available are still only rated for use on open vented systems, however a lot of heating systems are sealed or pressurised so you cannot simply join the pipes up. The main concern is the pipes hold together and are sealed so I'm not getting smoke blown in the room.

If your flue hasn't been cleaned in many years, as you say (I'm assuming this is an OLD stack) you really need to be careful.I was thinking of maybe going with copper due to the fact that you can easily bend it or use 90 degree fitting to change the angle though my fire can get hot (that said I tried to melt a copper penny when I was about 14 and it just got red hot) so my concern would be that the copper may melt, however if it's constantly having cool air blown through it so that may stop the copper reachkng a melting point? The fire-tube HX in the flue gases seem like the most user-friendly for the reason of cleaning and for durability. All bare water pipes have now been insulated but I'm thinking the biggest issue is with the boiler itself since if I hold my hand even a couple of feet away from the exit of the flue, it would burn.
