As the experts of the stove industry, the team here at Denton Stove Centre want to emphasise the importance of taking care of your stove. After all, an investment in a brand new wood burner is a decision that can take weeks to come to and the last thing that you want to do is let maintenance neglect affect this. Read on as the Denton Stove Centre team go over a few dangers that can result from poorly maintaining a stoveā€¦

Chimney Fires

Regardless of the fuel you use, it is important to understand the risks of a chimney fire. After all, a substance called creosote builds up along the walls of the chimney flue as a stove is used and it is vital that it is removed during an annual chimney sweep. This is because creosote is a highly flammable material and it only takes one spark to set off a dangerous chimney fire.

Poor Longevity

Taking care of a stove is a full-time commitment that a homeowner must be willing to make. After all, neglecting your maintenance responsibilities can actually damage your stove over time and subsequently reduce its longevity guarantee. In fact, the average stove comes with a 10 year lifespan but failing to clean and care for it can reduce this by a shocking 3-6 years!

Poor Fire Efficiency

Keeping your stove in tip top condition is not only important for aesthetics and safety, it is important for fire efficiency too. After all, a build-up of creosote in the flue can make it hard for the gases released as a by-product of combustion to leave the home, and as a result it is possible that the efficiency of the fuel can be affected. After all, if there is too much carbon dioxide and not enough oxygen then the fire will not burn as hot or generate as much heat. In addition to this, these gases will end up filtering into the home which can have a serious effect on the respiratory health of the homeowners.

When it comes to stoves, you should never play with fire. After all, burning fuels may help you achieve the aesthetic feature you have always desired but maintaining the stove you burn them in is essential for the health and safety of yourself and the people living in the property with you.
