With the recent drop in temperatures, those with a wood burning fire or stove will be eager to supplement their central heating with the warmth and atmosphere of real flames.
But if you are intending to use your wood burning fire or stove frequently throughout the winter months, ensure that you maintain your chimney by having it swept regularly.
The Fire & Rescue Service advises that chimneys are swept every three months to ensure their up-keep and optimise both the efficiency and safe use of a wood burning fire or stove. Try these straight forward tips as well to maximise your fire’s potential;
1. Source and use good wood for burning
2. Ensure your wood burning fire or stove receives enough air to burn well
3. Don’t overload your wood burning fire or stove with fuel, this may lead to over-firing.
You can find additional information and advice tailored to your wood burning fire or stove in the technical area of the Stovax website.
Have a Warm Christmas!
