Use the greatest firewood – When choosing firewood for your stove you should always look for firewood that has a low moisture content. You should consider using kiln-dried wood that often holds less than 8% water and can burn hot and long for long periods. If you are looking for firewood for sale in Fleetwood for example you should visit Harpers Firewood where you can buy kiln dried firewood at highly discounted prices.
Do not add too much wood – It is best to fuel your stove little and often ensuring that you do not block the stove’s air inlet by stuffing in too much wood. Doing this will allow for the ideal combustion rate.
Annual cleaning – All wood burning stoves require thorough cleaning at least once a year in order to work as superiorly as possible, and those that use their stove every day should clean their stoves more often than this perhaps twice per year or quarterly. If not cleaned stoves can build up a thick deposit and house fires can occur.
