If your appliance is not working correctly, please inform me when booking your service. Why do you need your appliance serviced? Wood Burning & Multi Fuel: I recommend that your chimney be swept at least once a year and that you burn wood with a moisture content of 20% or less. If you are using your appliance regularly or for long periods of time, it is recommended to increase this to two or three times a year. In addition to an annual sweeping, I also recommend a thorough service of your appliance is carried out. This is because a build up of creosote (a tar like substance) in your chimney or flue liner may result in your stove not drawing properly and not working to its full potential. Worse still a build up of creosote can cause a chimney fire. All wood can create creosote and it can never be completely prevented but burning wet, unseasoned wood will create significantly higher levels of creosote than normal. Due to the seasonal works that I carry out – I am unable to book services in for November through to January.
