  • Wood heaters and flues must be installed by a licensed mechanical services plumber
  • Regular servicing will improve efficiency and can reduce the risk of a house fire by removing creosote, a highly combustible tar-like material that can accumulate and block the flue
  • Follow the manufacturers instructions for lighting, fueling and operating the wood heater
  • Use paper or kindling wood to get the fire started
  • Only use dry, seasoned wood
  • Arrange the wood so plenty or air can flow around all sides
  • Always leave the air control open for at least 20 minutes after starting or refueling the fire
  • Do not overfill the heater or try to burn logs that are too large
  • Keep combustible materials, such as overhanging tree branches, well clear of flues
