  1. Essential Tips to Keep Your Stove Glass Clean and Clear

    Wood burning stove with blackened glass

    Many of us are embracing the warmth and charm that woodburning and multifuel stoves bring into our homes. However, improper use can lead to issues like blackened stove glass, wasted fuel, and environmental pollution. 

    Blackened glass is caused by a buildup of soot, creosote, and other combustion byproducts. If the fire doesn’t burn hot enough or wood used is not seasoned properly, it can produce more creosote which caused the glass to blacken. 

    Check out these essential tips to ensure your stove operates efficiently, while maintaining a clear glass window to enjoy those mesmerising flames.

    1. Choose Properly Seasoned Wood: Using dry wood with a moisture content of 20% or less is crucial for efficient burning and minimising soot buildup. Look out for the Ready to burn logo to be confident that you are purchasing firewood

  2. Exploring the difference between 904 and 316 Flue Liners: Which grade fits your requirements best?

    Ultraflex Flexible Flue Liner Components

    Flexible chimney flue liner for lining chimney stacks where no clay, terracotta or concrete lining exists. Constructed with two layers of stainless steel, available in 316/316 and 904/904 grade, these chimney liners increase the efficiency of the chimney to extract combustion gases and carbon monoxide from your stove, fireplace, or appliance.

    Distinguishing between 316 and 904 flue liners lies in the composition of their stainless-steel layers. Stainless steel, a blend of iron ore, silicon, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, and carbon, yields a corrosion-resistant steel variant. Varying the exact proportions of these elements alters the steel's properties, influencing factors like corrosion resistance, hardness, and malleability, resulting in different grades.

    The 904 grade boasts enhanced resistance to corrosive chemicals compared to the 316 grade, particularly with acidic residues from fuel combustion

  5. Hot tips to avoid a £300 on the spot fine for using your wood burning stove

    Horizon 5 Wide Stove

    Following changes in the law, you could find an official on your doorstep issuing a £300 fine for allowing your stove to be too smoky. To make sure you don't get penalised by this 2023 law change which means your chimney must emit less that 3g/hour smoke, instead of 5g/hour, we wanted to share some steps that you can take to avoid this happening to you.

    The new rules apply to all households that use log burners in smoke control areas. As these areas cover most of England’s towns and cities, most households in England may be subject to this fine. Anyone found to be in breach could now be liable for an on-the-spot fine of up to £300 and could even face criminal prosecution if they refuse to cut back their chimney smoke.

    If you’re unsure if you live in a Smoke Control Area you should contact your local council to check. You can also check your postcode on this

    Sweeping your chimney at least once a year and using a quality-assured fuel is the key to prevention. Not only does this remove soot and tar deposits but also gives chimney sweeps the opportunity to check for any problems with the chimney or liner. A typical sweep only takes about 90 minutes and doesn’t make a mess. Professional chimney

  8. Wood-Burning Stoves and PM2.5 Emissions: A Closer Look at the Debate

    Wood burning stove

    In these times of global crises and rising fuel poverty, wood-burning stoves have emerged as a crucial lifeline for many families. However, some newspapers have been quick to condemn this heat source, misrepresenting data and overlooking the positive impact it has on people's lives.

    While it is undeniable that updating outdated open fires and wood-burning stoves can substantially reduce PM2.5 emissions, we urge a more nuanced examination of the facts. The UK's Clean Air Strategy by Defra suggests that domestic combustion is responsible for 38% of fine particulate matter, based on a 2015 government survey that overestimated wood burning in stoves and fireplaces.

    A more extensive and independently verified 2019 survey of over 10,000 individuals revealed a much lower figure, around 13%, for domestic combustion. Furthermore,

  9. Why you shouldn't slumber your stove

    Why you shouldn't slumber your stove

    Slumbering a stove refers to the practice of intentionally dampening down the fire and reducing the air supply to make the fire burn slowly for an extended period, often overnight. While it may seem convenient to slumber a stove, there are several reasons why it is generally not recommended:

    1. Inefficiency: Slumbering a stove, leads to incomplete combustion of the wood, resulting in lower efficiency and increased emissions. When the air supply is reduced, the fire does not burn at its optimum temperature, leading to smouldering and the production of more smoke and pollutants.
    2. Creosote Build-up: Slumbering can contribute to the build-up of creosote in the chimney. Creosote is a highly flammable substance that can accumulate over time when there is incomplete combustion. It increases the risk of chimney fires, which can be dangerous and potentially cause significant
