How do I light a fire?

A small layer of ash should be left on the fuel bed when you are lighting your Wood Burning Stove.

Open the air controls on your stove.  Place a firelighter in the centre of the firebox.  Place the wood kindling (around 6-8 small pieces of dry softwood timber) on top of the lighting material.

Lay some larger pieces of Well Seasoned Wood or Kiln Dried Logs on top. Make sure that the logs have been split and they are no larger than 40mm square.

Light the fire lighting material and close the stove door (or leave slightly ajar for a very short spell).

Once the fire has caught you can then continue to add larger pieces of wood or solid fuel to the fire.  The door can now be fully closed.

Adjust the air vents according to the Manufacturer’s instructions.
