Lighting a fire can sometimes be difficult. Those of us who have arrived at a cold cabin in the winter, know that there are many different ways to get the fire going. However, this is a trusted procedure that makes lighting the fire easy. Also, this procedure is better for the environment.

Jøtul recommends regular maintenance of both fireplace and chimney. A clean fireplace provides for a great view of the fire and the wood burns better and cleaner. In addition, if you burn dry wood of good quality and ensure regular sweeping of your chimney, you minimise the risk of soot fires that can cause damage to the chimney. A proper maintenance system extends the lifetime for your product and gives you many years of great experiences.

We got help from one of our dealers to sort out the frequently asked questions. In the following, we answer some of them for you.

Author Lars Mytting has written a very successful book called "Hel ved" (a book about firewood) which offers advice on important aspects to consider when lighting a fire.
A wood stove is never better than the wood that is burned in it. Wood types act a bit differently, some smoulder and turn into big pieces of charcoal, others burn quickly and intensely, but the common factor is that the wood must be as dry as possible. This provides the best heat and easiest lighting, and makes it much easier to burn wood in an environmentally conscious way.

Sometimes we get questions regarding sweeping of the chimney and in this connection we asked Fred Ekeberg at the fire and rescue service, fire preventing department in Oslo, for a chat. The chimney sweep sweeps and cleans chimneys, smoke ducts, flue pipes and fireplaces in order to prevent soot fires and gas emissions. The chimney sweep also has special skills regarding fire prevention work and they work closely with the fire department. In addition, the chimney sweep informs about the correct burning techniques.
