Are you getting no heat from your heater no matter how much wood or coal you put on it? This can be a common problem but easily solved. There is a good chance your baffle is not doing the job and has possibly seen better days. Troubleshooting for this problem is relatively simple you need to look into the fire box and look where the smoke would exit up the flu, if there is broken bricks or holes or fractures in the metal plate [ baffle] that could well be the problem and it would need to be replaced. All baffles are not the same some are brick, some cast or mild steel, and some made of promo board so the price of baffles differs, depending on what material is used. Continual use of a heater with an inefficient baffle can cause serious problems, e.g. over-firing which will cause permanent damage to the interior casting of your heater and the flu. Below is an example of a burnt out baffle from a woodsman rmf
January is a good month to start getting organised on the home heating front...
Light a piece of paper in your heater if it smokes into the room you have an issue e.g. soot build up, birds in flu, cap displaced in high winds call Trev or contact on this website.
Time to get a good supply of dry wood in. Macrocarpa and pine are good woods to deal with as they are quick drying if stored in the right place The ideal storage area is against a fence, under trees or somewhere it is well aerated The same goes for your coal supply as it must be dry for efficient burning.
