Advice and tips

How to use the fireplace stove or insert economically and ecologically?

  • Use dry wood for heating only. Try to start the fire as quickly as possible to sufficiently heat up the chamber, so that the gases released from the wood can burn properly. To achieve this, open the primary and secondary air intake.
  • Stoke small amounts of wood at a time (2-3 logs) and always place them on the glowing embers; always leave the secondary air intake fully open.
  • If there is a sufficient amount of glowing wood at the bottom of the combustion chamber, reduce the secondary air intake according to your heating requirements. Wood burns slower when the air intake is reduced.
  • Do not throw wood into the furnace but insert it slowly so that you don’t damage the chamotte bricks or glazing!
