Once you have chosen an appliance and have had it safely installed it is important to maintain your stove for reasons of safety and function.

Your chimney should be swept at least once a year to remove any tar build up and soot deposits and the stove should be serviced to replace any frayed ropes or damaged components inside which may be protecting the stove walls,  such as the baffle or throat plate if it has warped or broken, firebricks if they have broken, grate and ash pan if they are warped, cracked or broken.

Most stoves can be serviced quite easily by you at home as these parts known as consumables are made to slide in and out for servicing purposes.

If you don´t fancy getting up to your elbows in ash there are companies who will carry out stove servicing for you including some chimney sweeps and installation engineers.
