Burn only dry, well seasoned wood. Best results are achieved by using dry wood, with a moisture content of less than 20%, which has been cut, split and stacked for at least 12 months. This is referred to as ‘seasoned’ wood. Burning wet or unseasoned wood will create tar deposits in the stove and chimney and will not produce a satisfactory heat output. Wood burns best on a bed of ash. It is therefore only necessary to remove surplus ash from the stove occasionally.
Most of the Multi Fuel Herald’s have the option of using a front extension. It is called, an ‘Extension’ because it increases the fuel load size within the firebox. This is especially helpful for overnight burning.
A wood burner can only burn well-seasoned logs, and the wood is burnt on the base of the stove. You use a shovel to clean out the ash. A multi-fuel stove comes with a grate where you can burn both coal or well seasoned logs. An ash pan beneath the grate allows for easy removal of ash.
If you have purchased a multi fuel stove and then decide you wish to convert to a pure wood burner, you would need a wood conversion kit. This also applies with using a multi fuel kit if you wanted to change from a wood burner to multi fuel.
If your chimney has an exceptionally good draught, it may be worth fitting a damper. This helps reduce the pull on the chimney and helps keep heat within the firebox, which is then transferred into the room. A damper also helps when burning wood over night as it slows the burn rate down and increases the burn time on the wood.
PLEASE NOTE Dampers are not to be used with Multi fuel Hunter Stoves. Multi fuels have higher combustion than wood, so adding a damper would be dangerous.
