Operating a Stove, although simple, can though be a little daunting at the start and as such we have provided our Top Ten Tips when operating a Multi-Fuel Stove. With proper care and attention your stove will last for many many years, we hope you find this useful!

Our Top Ten Tips!

1. Before installing your new solid fuel stove, ensure your chimney/flue has been professionally inspected and that any cleaning or repair work has fully carried out.
2. Choose a stylish matching  connecting flue pipe to complement your new stoves good looks, stove flues are available in matt black and a range of enameled finishes.
3. If you are considering burning turf or wood in your new stove ensure you have a plentiful, local supply, and that it is fully dry for maximum efficiency.  Fuels with a high moisture content can result in a build up of tar in both the Stove and chimney.

Solid Fuel – CALORIFIC VALUES
Anthracite 25-50mm C.V. – 8.2kW/Kg 14,000 BTUs/lb
House Coal 25-75mm C.V. – 7.2kW/Kg 12,000 BTUs/lb
Timber (firebox size) C.V. – 5.0kW/Kg 8,600 BTUs/lb
Peat Briquettes C.V. – 4.8kW/Kg 8,300 BTUs/lb

4. Clean the flue-way of the stove weekly and ensure that there are no blockages.
5. When placing fresh fuel into your stoves firebox, riddle fully to remove all the ashes.  Riddling will allow for a better and cleaner burn.

7. Allow adequate air ventilation to ensure plenty of air for combustion.
8. Try to avoid burning rubbish and household plastic.
