The Importance of Regular Maintenance

Even though stoves are made to be extremely durable, like everything else they will experience general wear and tear. It is very vital to carry out regular maintenance every year to keep your stove working at its best capability and efficiency.

Here we run through some simple checks that you can perform annually that will help to ensure your stove is running as it should be: –


One of the most important things to do when you have got a stove is to ensure the chimney is swept at least once a year. This makes sure that the flue is kept clear of any debris and helps the stove to pull and burn efficiently. Not only that is will also help to avoid a chimney fire.

Fire Bricks

Fire bricks are an essential part to any stove as they line the inside of your fire box. Not only do they ensure that the heat is reflected back into the chamber, but they also help to protect the outer casing. All you need to do is check all your fire bricks for cracks or defects which may be affecting their performance.

Door and Glass Seals

The sealing on your glass and door is probably the most common thing that needs to be replaced on a stove. This is just a small fix but will provide a massive affect on how your stove is working. These seals help to prevent the stove from drawing in too much air and therefore increase efficiency when burning your fuel.


If you find that your glass on your stove has cracked, then you need to move quickly to get it replaced as your stove will be out of use until a new piece of glass has been fitted. We do always recommend, if possible, to keep a spare piece of glass because like everything it will probably crack at the most inconvenient time.

General Parts

As the stove gets older you may find that other parts need to be replaced and we would be more than happy to help you find the correct part. We can supply all the spare parts for various different well-known brands.
