Tips for using your solid fuel heater this winter

19 Apr 2017 Nowra 0 Comment

There is nothing better than a cosy wood fire to warm the house in winter.  Some people think it is complicated and messy but if you follow the tips below you will have your fire burning brightly and efficiently all winter long:

Clean the chimney every year to prevent creosote build up. Creosote is a sticky black residue that can build up in your chimney—it restricts air flow and makes your fire harder to start. A creosote-clogged chimney can spill smoke into your room when you open the heater and even catch fire, putting your home at risk.

Note: Current legislation allows households who produce excessive amounts of woodsmoke to be issued with a Prevention Notice.  This attracts a $320 fee.


Don’t have a Solid Fuel Heater yet?

Prior to installation make sure you have Council approval.  You can download an information brochure and an application form from Council’s website www.shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au.  Just click on the My Property tab.
