The door glass will need cleaning periodically – wait until the appliance has cooled before cleaning. A damp cloth or paper towel should remove any ash dust or light brown stains. For darker, more stubborn stains, buy special stove glass cleaner that will not scratch the surface. Check the special gasket around the glass and replace it when it gets worn or leaky. Many of the new, high-efficiency stoves feature a forced-air mechanism that helps to keep the door glass clean. 12 Burning Wood Efficiently By firing your wood-burning system correctly, you improve efficiency and reduce air pollution.

Replace the batteries annually, and consider installing a carbon monoxide detector. • Buy a labelled and approved ABC-type fire extinguisher, and store it near the installation. Follow the instructions on the extinguisher label for maintenance procedures. • Read and follow the manufacturer’s operating instructions. 9 The Chimney Modern, efficient appliances need modern, efficient chimneys. The selection, location and installation of the chimney are as important as the type of woodburning appliance you choose.

Minimum Guidelines for Installing Chimneys 1) Install the chimney within the house envelope, rather than up an outside wall. Chimneys along an outside wall are exposed to wind and low temperatures; this chilling effect can reduce the available draft to the appliance and cause condensation. Outside chimneys also tend to create a cold backdraft when no fire is burning. This allows cold air and odours to enter the house and makes it hard to light a fire without getting smoke in the house. On the other hand, chimneys that run up inside the house benefit from being enclosed within a warm environment.
