How to Use Your Slow Combustion Fireplace Correctly
In our industry we see lots of fireplaces misused and this causes a drastic reduction in the life span of the fireplace and also a huge increase in the cost of maintenance.
A slow combustion fireplace is to be used as the name suggests – “slow” i.e. don’t feed the fire with too much air. The more air that is available to the fire, the more vigorously it will burn. Where oxygen binds with exposed steel surfaces it will oxidise, go brown and start to flake. Not many people realise but this process needs to be looked after yearly with maintenance.
