Stop your woodburner from warping

It costs less than a large takeaway pizza… but could help your stove to last for years longer


One of the biggest causes of damage to woodburners is overfiring. In other words, operating the stove at too high a temperature.

Overfiring can lead to damage and warping to the internal parts and flue. It can also crack the glass in the stove.

Plus, it increases your costs by burning the fuel too quickly.

How do you know if the stove is overfiring?

The way to test if the temperature is too high in your woodburner is the same as testing if the temperature of anything is too high: use a thermometer.

A stove pipe thermometer will allow you to easily check that the stove is operating at optimum temperature for efficiency and to avoid unnecessary damage to your appliance.

Buy one now to avoid further damage to your stove.

One customer explains why he recommends Evergreen stoves

Gr8Fires customer Bob Gibbs kindly got in touch recently to tell us why he would recommend Evergreen stoves to anybody. Bob is better positioned than most to make such as recommendation: he has owned no fewer than three separate Evergreen woodburners to date.

We’ll let him talk through his experiences to date with each of the appliances in his own words.

“My first Evergreen woodburner was a Larch STO311A 6.5kW. It performed perfectly but it was easier to keep burning with coal rather than wood because of its small thermal mass.


“My next woodburner was an Evergreen Ash STO147A 7kW. I don’t really know why but this one gave fantastic results and was easy to both light and burn with wood and coal. When we used just wood, we found it best to take out the grate inside.


“We finally gave this woodburner to a friend and it is still being used today.

“We decided replace the Ash with another Evergreen woodburner, this time an Olive STO147-11 7kW. We have been just as pleased with this one and it was installed with the flue coming off the top. The liner, which goes up the chimney, is 16ft long and is 6inches in diameter. We light it with a single fire lighter under a log and it burns as if we had a blow lamp inside.


“We shut it down to reduce the air flow and therefore the burn rate in approximately 4 minutes after start up. This ensures that we control the rate at which the logs burn.

“All the Evergreen woodburners have worked extremely well and we would recommend this design to anybody. I really like the simplicity of their design which is probably why they burn so well.”
