Lighting your Firenzo Woodfire - Insert Fire


  • The initial goal is to heat the flue and create draw
  • Then to heat the steel of the firebox to create heat from radiation and convection.
  • It is very important to get the fire up to heat and keep it hot
When preparing a fire use plenty of dry kindling. Light the fire and once the fire is established gradually add larger pieces of fire wood TAKING CARE NOT TO SMOTHER THE FIRE.

Always have plenty of flame. The first goal is to create a vigorous fire that heats up the flue which will create draw. Light the kindling and keep the door of the fire slightly ajar which will allow plenty of air to get at the fire and prevent smoking and smothering.

When there is a strong fire burning from the kindling add slightly larger pieces of fire wood taking care not to smother the fire and keeping a strong flame. At this stage the 5mm steel fins will start to warm
As the fire and the embers build add larger logs of fire wood. Don't skimp on fire wood and burn it vigorously. After some time the fire will reach optimum operation, keep feeding the fire to ensure the heat can spread throughout the room and house. Keep the air control fully open until the heating objective is reached.
