You can burn practically any type of wood in Romotop fireplace stoves and inserts. The most important condition is that you should always use dry wood only. Wood should first dry out in an aerated sheltered location for at least 2 years. Ideally, you should chop the wood into pieces before storing it to allow it to dry out faster. In order to achieve the nominal parameters of the heating unit, we recommend using dry wood logs with a diameter of 5-8 cm, a length of 20-30 cm and a moisture content of less than 20% (optimally 10%). Twigs and small pieces of chopped wood should be used to start the fire only. Never use chemically treated wood!
Never use flammable liquids, coke, coal or waste such as chipboard, plastics, bags, impregnated wood or wood savings. sawdust or pellets as fuel!
Burning these materials not only heavily pollutes the environment but it also damages the fireplace stove (insert) and chimney!
