Overnight burn times or burn times over 8 hours can be achieved on most Lopi wood heaters. Burn times can vary however depending on the following:
Full load of timber:
The firebox must be fully loaded with every log burning to maximise burn times. Once fully burning the air control can be adjusted to increase the burn time.
Quality of timber
Some species of hardwood burn for longer than others. Ask your local firewood yard or Lopi specialist for advice.
Flue or Chimney Draw
The quality of the flue/chimney draw can impact on the burn time. Generally speaking the longer the flue run the better draw however this can negatively effect burn times.
Ensure that the door is fully latched and the door robe/seal is in tact.
It is recommended to replace the door robe annually to ensure a good seal so that unwanted air doesn’t enter the firebox causing a hotter and shorter burn time.
Check the ash bed for coals. Often, coals are still glowing under a slight bed of fly ash. By raking these into a pile you can re-start your stove quickly.
