Fire does not burn for long periods

Wood can contain a number of variable factors related to species, weight, age and moisture content. It is difficult therefore to be precise with regards to the length of burn time.

If it is thought that the fuel is burning too quickly:

  • The diameter of the logs are too small

  • If softwoods are being used, change to hardwoods

  • Excessive chimney draught. If so, fit a draught stabiliser

  • Worn out door and glass seals need replacing
