Spring Flue Problems?

We love the spring time here at Woof!  But it’s not all lambs and daffodils . . .

The changeable weather can have a strange effect on your stove, the flue may go in to reverse.

This is because the outside temperature can rise quite suddenly and become warmer than the temperature inside.  This can cause air to travel down the flue not up, the obvious sign is the smell of soot and your stove may not light and smoke can come out from where air should be drawn in.

By opening your stove door and placing a hand inside you should be able to establish if this is happening and leaving the door fully open for a few minutes should allow more air in through and up to cure the problem.
