Is your fire hot enough?

To ignite and sustain a flame effectively, begin with smaller fires and gradually increase the intensity as the logs ignite. This method ensures your wood-burning appliance reaches its peak burning temperatures.

Smaller, hotter flames are far more effective initially than larger fires that lack the necessary energy for proper combustion.

Contact your stove supplier or installer regarding running temperatures, If insufficient heat is generated, the wood may smoulder - reaching the temperature where combustible gases can escape, but not enough for combustion.

When wood is burned at a very low temperature, it produces more creosote. This sticky substance lines your chimney and is a fire hazard.

Top tip: Buy a stove thermometer to indicate when optimum burn temperatures have been achieved.
