Room Heating Stove Gloves

As a general rule of thumb it is advisable to use stove gloves when using your wood burning stove. Fireside stove gloves will not only protect your hands and lower arms when you’re loading firewood or fuel, but they are also ideal for cooking on a BBQ with too.

Room Heating Stove Ash Vacuum

Everyone loves firing up their wood burning stove,  but cleaning it can be a different matter! While it is not particularly time consuming, cleaning your stove can be a dirty job but it will need to be done on a regular basis.

The good news is, there is a solution. A stove ash vacuum is perfect for cleaning up the ash with minimum mess and hassle. Easy to use and empty, this is sure to become a welcome addition to your home.

Room Heating Stove flue pipe thermometer

It’s important that your wood burning stove is always burning at the right temperature. One of the best ways to do this is to use a flue pipe thermometer.

Room Heating Stove Log Basket

If you have a wood burning stove, one of your first purchases should be a stove log basket. These come in all shapes and size. Stove log baskets are a great way to keep your logs neat and tidy, ensuring that they’re always to hand when you need them.

Moisture Metre

Finally, a moisture metre is a great tool for those looking to keep burning levels at their cleanest and most efficient.

Affordable and easy to use, a moisture metre is a handheld device that allows you to check the moisture content of your wood. This is important as you will need to make sure that the moisture content of your logs is under 20% to burn effectively.
