What fuel to burn?
When burning wood it is essential that it is well seasoned with a maximum moisture content of 20% but ideally less. If you are not sure if your wood is seasoned you can buy moisture meters to check its moisture levels.
For purchasing wood we recommend A & C Douglas Jones - 01808 521369. www.strathnairnfirewood.co.uk
Briquettes are also great for burning on stoves as they are guaranteed to have low moisture content and is a renewable product.
For recommendations on other fuel types please refer to the HETAS recommended fuel guide for a comprehensive list of fuel to use on your stove. http://www.hetas.co.uk/find-fuels
This is an essential part of maintaining your stove or fireplace and we recommend that you have your chimney swept at least once every year and twice a year if you use your stove more regularly.
We recommend Lyn Chim Chimney – 01463 771828 chimchimeny.com
