A stove is a great addition to any home when the safety guidelines are abided by. After all, fire is incredibly dangerous and should never be meddled with. Here at Denton Stove Centre, we recognise the amount of incorrect information that circles the web regarding stove usage which is why we have taken it upon ourselves to bust these myths once and for all! Read on as we go through three of the biggest stove misconceptions around…

  1. You Can Burn Any Type of Wood

When it comes to firewood, it is important that you educate yourself on the process of seasoning. After all, different types of wood burn differently, some are even unsuitable for burning in a stove. In general, you should invest in seasoned firewood or kiln dried logs that have a moisture below 20%. This is because burning damp or treated wood can cause creosote to build up in the flue at an accelerated pace, damaging your stove and putting you at risk of a chimney fire.

  1. Opening the Stove Door Will Heat a Room Faster

A stove is made with a door for a reason; however, there is a common misconception that opening it will allow the heat to travel around a room quicker. In actual fact, this will actually pull more heat up the flue and away from the room it is supposed to be heating. In addition to this, the increased draught that the stove will have to contend with will cause you to burn much more fuel than usual.

  1. You Cannot Have a Stove in an Urban City

Following the Great Smog of London in 1952, the government introduced smoke control zones in order to reduce pollution from the burning of fuels like coal and firewood. Although people in these zones are not ‘banned’ from owning a stove, they are only allowed to use a stove that has been approved by the DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs). In addition to this, only smokeless coals are permitted for burning in these zones.

As an investment for the future, it is important that any homeowner wanting to purchase a stove does their research beforehand by speaking to a licenced professional who can help them find and select the perfect stove for their requirements. After all, when the internet cannot be trusted, an expert in the industry can!
