Position

When installing a new stove, think about the surrounding area of stove. Keep it away from walls, furniture, curtains, and any other flammable materials. This is what is meant when we consider clearance – the amount of clear space between your stove and other objects or furniture.  Additionally, using a non-combustible floor pad to enclose the stove is used to ensure no stray sparks or embers from the stove set the floor on fire. You may also need to consider using a shield for the nearby walls, which works in the same way. Similarly, you should keep your supply of wood away from the clearance area of your wood burning stove. A ventilation system is also necessary in order to circulate air, and it is vital to ensure efficient and safe wood burning.

Maintenance

As with poor ventilation, if wood burning stoves are not properly and regularly cleans and maintained, they could be a hazard. Not only a risk of spreading fire, but could also lead to carbon monoxide entering the home. It is also important to install carbon monoxide detectors, as well as fire alarms, for this reason.

Children

Whilst wood burning stoves bring pleasure to the whole family, it is important to educate children about fire safety. Stress to your children to keep clear of hot stoves, and never leave children unattended with the wood burning stove.

Additional Precautions

When you need to clean out any ash, remember to dispose of them safely and to make sure they are completely cool as any ashes may contain live coals. It is also worth investing in a Class A fire extinguisher to extra precaution, so if an accident does occur, you’re able to deal with it quickly and efficiently.
