Easy lighting of your stove for a cosy smoke-free atmosphere
When an old wood-burning stove is replaced and a new one installed, many experience insufficient draught in the chimney. This means that smoke, soot and unpleasant smells wind up in the living room, and you are left with an unhappy experience.
The reason is poor draught in the chimney, which in part can be due to the chimney being either too short or too inadequate, but also that the new wood-burning stove is energy-optimized, thus not emitting a lot of heat into the chimney. Draught develops from the difference between the heat inside the chimney and the cold outside, and if this difference is insufficient, the draught fails to materialize, and problems arise.
That was precisely the experience of Lars Willemar and his wife Jytte, when they replaced their old wood-burning stove with a new one a few years ago.
”The draught wasn’t the same with the new stove as with the old one. This meant that lighting the new stove was incredibly difficult in weather conditions where there was a lot of wind, as well as in rainy and still weather”, says Lars Willemar.
Furthermore, Lars Willemar experienced quite a bit of smoke escaping from the new wood-burning stove when it came time to refuel, and it was generally difficult to keep the fire going.
”The new stove was a lot more energy-efficient alright, but it needed something to give us the right draught in the chimney – and then there was the annoyance of the fire dying”, says Lars Willemar.
