Amazing woodburner stove

Soieb Mulla last month

My feedback on our very first woodburner nordpeis bergen latest model bought Nov 2019

Been new to woodburners we were doing many things that were wrong hence we had our cousin over who is using a woodburner for many years.

This wood burner if burnt correctly is very very good

The way I burn is build up a kindle /softwood bed and burn until it reaches a min temp of 250f-300f but don't close the door completely let air rush in as it's a big burner will need more air, then after it''s well alight after 5-6 mins put the number of logs in you desire 3 is sufficient or otherwise will get too hot, and close the door, main air vent close half way and second air vent push a inch in.

Watch it roar and burn, I got 2hrs from 5 logs, 1 logs were birch and 1 cheery and other 3 from a supermarket - cheap wood 5 bag

To add more logs let it go down but stay within optimum temp and add more logs, after adding more logs keep door open for a few seconds then close immediate.

My experience and hope it helps anyone who is having any issues with this burner

Stove expert replied: Please be careful when buying cheap wood - it is recommended that you get a moisture meter to insure that you only use wood that is dry and seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20% this will help to maintain a clear flue providing you keep the air controls partially open, have short periods of fast burn during each usage and have the chimney swept regularly.
