Whether you want to revel in the aesthetics or are purchasing for practicality, there is something about a woodburning stove that cannot be understated. After all, they are a reliable apparatus that can last for decades at a time as long as they are well taken care of.

With this said, it is important to ensure that you aren’t making any rookie mistakes which is why we have put together a beginners guide to woodburning stoves so you can learn the basics or brush up on some forgotten knowledge…

Seasoned Firewood

When you are burning wood, it is important to take the moisture content into consideration. After all, if your fuel has too much water in it then it won’t result in an efficient fire that will burn for hours and get hot enough to heat the home. As a result, you should opt for seasoned firewood that has been sufficiently dried before burning it in a fire.

Air Control

With a stove, the air comes from two different sources. For instance, primary air is what feeds the bed of the fire whilst secondary air is what feeds the flames. Since the majority of the energy that the fire will receive comes from the gases that are released from burning the firewood, secondary air is the most important to consider. In order to control the air flow you should never close the secondary air vent or leave the stove door open, unless you are manually lighting the fire.

Prioritise Safety

Although a woodburning fire is one of the easiest to control, it is still a fire nonetheless. This means that you should always place safety to the top of the priority list in order ensure that nobody gets injured. In addition to this, the flue should regularly be swept in order to remove a build up of soot so that the air is continuously filtered.

A woodburning stove is a brilliant way to create that cosy winter atmosphere that people long for.
