More handy tips and tricks with solid fuel

  • We recommend that you always burn the best quality fuel you can afford. The heat content will be greater and with less ash.
  • It’s very important to have your chimney swept on a regular basis. At the very least once a year. When burning wood and or bituminous coal.

Ensure you use a competent person, e.g. a HETAS registered installer when you have a solid fuel appliance fitted.

  • With the above in mind, always have appliances serviced annually by a qualified engineer and maintained regularly in accordance with manufacturer’s guidelines.
