Wood burning stoves are one of the most popular heat sources. They’re also a very old type of heating system, with evidence suggesting that people have been using wood to make fires for cooking and warmth since prehistoric times! Despite technological advances in our modern world, there is still something about these ‘old fashioned’ appliances which captures peoples imaginations – perhaps it has something to do with an emotional connection between ourselves and nature?

The technology behind them hasn’t changed much though. Wood burning stoves can come in many different shapes and sizes but they all work on the same principle – by allowing you to burn logs or other types of fuel inside a closed firebox which then heats up the air inside the stove and forces it out through a flue which can be attached to your chimney.

Is there anything I should do to maintain my stove?

Wood burning stoves require some maintenance but it is fairly low-maintenance overall because the majority of parts are sturdy and made from metal so they don’t need regular replacement or checking. You will probably want to clean out your ash pan every time you use the appliance, unblock any smoke stacks after each fire (if necessary) and check that all hoses, connectors and gaskets are still sealed correctly whenever possible. If you have a glass door however, this may be more difficult due to risk of breakage if knocked slightly off kilter during cleaning sessions.

Is it difficult to get started using my stove?

No! Wood burning stoves are designed so that they can be used as soon as the chimney has been swept clean of any debris (if required) and filled with insulation before use. You just open your air control door or vents fully, fill the firebox with logs until full then light an ignition material in order to ignite them. Once your appliance is hot enough you will see glowing embers at which point you either add more logs or turn on convection mode depending on what type of wood burner you own.

Conclusion

While wood burning stoves are great for heating your home, they can be difficult to use if you do not have the right information or equipment. With a little bit of effort and research though, I’m sure that anyone could find one that will work for their needs!
