Ready, steady, fire up!
The technical subtleties in a RAIS make it easy to be environmentally conscious. Many of the stoves are supplied with CleverAir. Otherwise, the convection system ensures the exact amount of air and thereby high temperature. Effective combustion at all times guarantees as much heat as possible.
Good combustion requires using dry, unprocessed firewood, proper firing and the adequate amount of wood.
- The firewood must be dry. The water content may not exceed 18%. Then the fire can get going, burn clean and give off heat quickly.
- The stove warms up quickly. See the operating instructions of your stove to light it properly.
- Use firewood suitable for your stove. The logs must be 30-33 cm long and 6-10 cm wide. There should be air between them and the walls of the combustion chamber.
- Fill the stove without overfilling it so that the fire can gain the upper hand and successfully burn the gases. If the combustion is good, you will not see or smell any smoke from the chimney.
- Purchase the firewood in advance and ensure good storage. The wood needs time to dry and proper air drying may take up to two years depending on the wood type and storage. The firewood dries best when sawn and chopped. Place the wood in an airy and sunny place protected from rain, preferably under shed roof or wood shed with panel fences. Avoid covering that holds the moisture. Drying of firewood outdoors is always best because it ensures sufficient air circulation.
- Carry the firewood in a couple of days before using it. Hit the logs together so that beetles and other small animals get out before placing the logs in the basket.
