  • combustible wood

    Dolf Walg 5 years ago

    Dear Expert, wood is indeed combustible, which is not an eye opener. Next to a boiler area the heating up is limited, but does take place. It is off course the last drying. Wood should be dry before getting it inside.... []

    Stove expert replied: Only wood that is less than 20% moisture content should be used on an appliance, seasoning can take in excess of a year depending on which wood it is and always the clearance of 450mm should be maintained.

    Stove expert replied: Not a good idea to store wood close to a stove to dry it out, it should be at least 450mm away as it is combustible!!
