I meet different methods to fire up the woodboiler. Now I show you my favourite, simple and comfortable practice. Give it a try.
I put thicker logs at the bottom, 4-5 pieces.
On the top some thin pinewood, then some cartonboard and some newspaper.
Then I light the newspaper with a match.
I pull out the ignition valve pulling rod
If the flame is stabilised…
I turn down the wastegas thermostat to zero, where the match sign is. The fan and the pump start.
I colse the door and push back the ignition valve pulling rod.
I go back to sleep. Optimally, I have to come back in the boiler room only in 3-4 hours. Good testing!
