Heating with wood

Wood, when used properly, is an exceptional ecological fuel. With well-preserved dry wood, pellets or briquettes, we can heat our homes perfectly in an environmentally friendly way.
Those who use a wood-burning stove in particular should follow some simple tips for proper heating. We recommend the use of thin, dry wood, in combination with natural kindling. At the start, it is important to keep the air inlets and the draught gates open. As soon as the fire is lit, close the door of the stove to allow the wood to receive the correct amount of air and to achieve the right draw. It is important to avoid overheating the stove, as this means that the walls of the system become scorched, potentially damaging the internal parts.
When completely lit, close the primary air inlet and any secondary air louvres in order to ensure that the heat that has built up in the stove does not flow out of the chimney. In any case, always follow the instructions for use of the manufacturer of the stove or fireplace.

Four simple rules to warm your space in complete safety, while respecting the environment:
  • Use an efficient, low-emission system
  • Use the correct dry and well-preserved fuel
  • Use the system correctly
  • Ensure regular checks are carried out by a qualified technician
