It is very easy to get heat from a Varde Ovne stove.

A clear glass window and a clean combustion chamber are sure signs that the stove is burning correctly. If your stove blackens, either the air intake is too small, or the wood too wet, or there is too little draw in the chimney (the chimney may be too short).

Make sure you use good dry wood. Logs should be cut to fit the combustion chamber. Use firelighter cubes. Use small logs to light the stove. Once lit, use larger logs.

Heat is produced by burning flue gas from the wood. The gas burns most efficiently at high temperatures and it is therefore important that you observe the flames. When the flames are bluish and have a slightly wavy shape, the burning temperature is optimal.
