How do I prevent tarry soot from accumulating in the wood-burning stove?
Tarry soot is caused by insufficient combustion temperature and/or wet wood.
Tarry soot increases the risk of chimney fires.
Tarry soot can be recognised as a brown, sticky coating on the stove’s surfaces.
Low combustion temperature occurs when there is insufficient primary air during the lighting phase in relation to the quantity of wood used.
