Operating instructions and precautions
The most suitable fuels for Bavaria fireplace stoves are wood briquettes or dry wood with a low calorific value. To achieve the required moisture content of the logs, they must be kept for a year and a half in a dry, ventilated room.
Damp wood gives off little heat and a lot of soot, thus contaminating the chimney.
In no case should coal be used for burning, since its combustion temperature is too high.
Before firing up, it is necessary to open the air regulators, lay firewood, and only then light the firebox. The wood is on fire, you can close the door. Further, the combustion power is regulated using air regulators.
The ash pan from the Bavaria stoves can only be removed after the fireplace has completely cooled down.
When using fireplaces, the following safety rules should be followed.
- The stove is installed only on a non-combustible floor, the distance from the stove and pipes to flammable materials must be at least 80 cm.
- The mass of firewood for a one-time laying should not exceed 3 kg.
- Permissible burning time - continuously no more than 6 hours.
- Do not use flammable liquids during ignition.
- The firebox door must always be tightly closed, even when the hearth is off.
- Use gloves when opening the door and lining firewood.
- Restrict children's access to a working fireplace.
- Light the fireplace in the absence of draft.
- Burn garbage in the oven.
- Leave the melted oven unattended.
- Dry clothes on the oven.
- Remove soot by burning.
- Fill the fireplace with water.
- Use the oven continuously.
- Change the design of the oven.
Remember that violation of these rules can not only deprive you of your home, but also your life.
Under no circumstances should the Bavaria fireplace stoves be installed in rooms where there are flammable materials, for example, in garages.
The installation of these ovens must be carried out according to the instructions that come with each model.
In order for everything to work without problems, the following rules must be observed:
- installation must be carried out in a room with a sufficient supply of fresh air;
- install the oven on a flat horizontal floor with a non-combustible coating;
- in front of the firebox and the ash box, a metal sheet is placed at least 0.5 mm thick, more than 70 millimeters wide;
- the installation is carried out so that the temperature of nearby combustible materials does not rise above 50. Where this does not work, a protective screen is installed.
- the chimney must have a height of at least 5 m. It is allowed to connect only two stoves to the chimney at the same time.
When the fireplace is fired up for the first time, an unpleasant odor will be emitted, which will disappear within a few hours - this will burn out the transport soil.
Since Bavaria stoves are manufactured in Russia, their price is much lower than foreign counterparts, but at the same time the quality of fireplaces is in no way inferior. The cost of stoves varies from 8000 rubles. (Cologne) up to 170,000 rubles (Alsace), depending on what you need a stove for and what you want to see.
The impression of the Bavaria line of fireplace stoves is very good. First of all, it is a low price, ease of installation. These ovens are doing quite well with the promises made by the Ekokamin Group of Companies. Although negative reviews are also found, but this is more likely due to improper operation, the use of raw firewood or firewood with increased heat transfer.
