Does your wood burning or multi fuel stove need it’s annual service?
Like any heating appliance, it is important to make sure that your wood & multi-fuel stove is running efficiently and safely, once it is installed.
HETAS recommends that chimneys and flues are swept twice a year if burning wood or bituminous house coal or once a year if using a smokeless fuel. It is best to have your chimney/flue swept before the start of the main burning season, to check the chimney is free from any debris, such as bird’s nests and then either part way through or at the end of the burning season to prevent soot deposits from resting in the chimney during the dormant period.
It is also advisable to have your stove serviced annually to check it is working safely, from time to time it may be necessary to replace fire bricks and rope seals.
