To maintain the operability of the furnace, it is necessary to adhere to all the rules of its operation. In this case, we are talking not only about the correct incitement, but also about cleaning and maintenance.
As a rule, heating stoves for giving work on wood or angle. First of all, you need to know that in no case should you drown the stove with raw wood. The thing is that moisture not only prevents the normal fire, but also the formation of a large amount of soot and smoke. It is worth noting that firewood plays a large role in the maintenance of the furnace. In particular, we are talking about the fact that there are several types of this material. As a rule, all firewood is divided into two types: the first is designed to burn coal and the second – designed to give heat.
In addition, it is necessary to know, speaking of wood fuel, does not mean to keep in mind the wood. After all, today there are many substitutes, the effect of which is equivalent to the effect of firewood.
Naturally, only dry firewood must be used. Raw not only badly burn, but can also be a source of unpleasant odor and smoke in the room, as they contain a large amount of moisture. But this is not the worst that can happen. Usually, when drowned with raw wood, creosot accumulates in the chimney. And as a final factor, soot can cause pollution of both the furnace itself and the premises as a whole.
It is very important to understand that in the case of waste from flooring or from furniture, in no case can they be drowned. The thing is that the aforementioned material undergoes chemical treatment, which ultimately can adversely affect the condition of the furnace and building.
As for the care of the stove, it should be noted that this process can be divided into several stages. One of these stages portends regular cleaning the visible surface of the furnace. For example, if there is glass in the door, then it must be systematically cleaned from soot and resins that settled on the surface as a result of fire combustion. We must also forget about those parts of the furnace that are in the attic. It is necessary to constantly monitor their condition, since cracks may form from temperature. By the way, it is the latter that can cause a fire, since heat can penetrate through the gaps.
Another stage of service portends regular cleaning of the internal parts of the furnace. In most cases, this refers to the cleaning of soot. In addition, soot is the main reason for the poor functioning of the furnace. It is recommended to clean the furnace from soot after each heating season.
