SAFE AND SOUND WITH SOLID FUEL
Many solid fuel fired appliances are expected to “work” 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, keeping us warm and supplied with constant hot water. However, like any other machines, they work better and last longer when correctly installed, burn the right fuel and are properly maintained. It is therefore important to ensure that new installations are carried out by recognised and established heating engineers and serviced by competent companies working in this area.
1. THE RIGHT FUEL
In order to get the best value for money it is important to burn the right fuels of the correct size in your appliance. If you are in any doubt about which fuel is suitable for your particular appliance, please telephone your local Approved Coal Merchant or Home-sweep for free advice.
2. AIR SUPPLY
All fuels require an adequate supply of air to make them burn correctly. If too little air is available, fumes that are harmful to your family may escape into the room. If you have double glazing or draught proofing, you will need to allow air to enter the room in which the appliance is installed via an air brick or grille. Never seal air bricks or grills up, you may be putting your family at risk. Again seek advice if you are in any doubt.
