How to use HotBlocks on your wood burning stove
Place two Hotblocks on their sides about 1 inch apart with a third block over the top, forming a bridge.
Place the firelighter in the centre space and light.
Open up the air control of the stove as required and push the door too. Remain in front of the stove for 2 min while the Blocks ignite and the burn rate increase to warm the flue. Once the block have taken, Close the door shut and control the stove using the air vent set up.
Leave the Blocks alone once lit, do not riddle or poke the Blocks as this will reduce output and increase the burn rate.
When first using any new fuel type be sure to remain present while the fire in on to note how the wood fuel behaves on your appliance and you can adjust your fueling dependent on what is observed.
Please don’t overload your fire with HotBlocks as they burn very hot.
Care should also be taken for some time after the fire has died down as the ash may remain hot for up to 12 hours.
It is usually possible to re-ignite the fire by placing one or two new HotBlocks into the hot ash and opening the air vents until the fire is actively burning once again.
