How Often Do I Need To Clean My Chimney?

Do I need to clean my chimney? Cork chimney sweepToday we had a visit from Declan O’Donoghue of Cork Chimney Sweep. Declan called in and met the Boru team and received a detailed walk-through of all our stoves. This ensures that Declan can offer the best possible service and advice to his customers. We asked him, ‘How Often Do I Need To Clean My Chimney?’ Declan is a Professional Certified And Registered chimney sweep working in Cork and he answered this and many other chimney sweeping related questions we had for him. Read our blog below to find out all about keeping your chimney clean.

How often should I get my chimney cleaned?

You should get your chimney cleaned at least once a year. If you are using a stove I would recommend cleaning the flue twice a year. Stoves usually have a smaller flue than traditional open fires. This means creosote can build up faster and needs to be cleaned more regularly.

What is Creosote?

Creosote is usually the cause of a chimney fire. It is a by-product left over when burning fossil fuels like wood, peat or coal. As the smoke rises in the chimney it begins to cool and deposits this carbon rich residue on the inside of the chimney. If the air flow to the fire is restricted, like when closing the vents on a stove, this can cause a greater build-up of creosote. As this then builds up on the chimney the problem is compounded. Not as much air is being drawn through the stove to fully burn the fuel.

So a dirty chimney can affect the performance of my stove?

Yes, without a doubt. As the creosote builds up, this reduces the draft in the chimney, meaning less oxygen getting to the firebox. Less oxygen means the fire will not burn as hot or as efficient and thereby causing greater creosote build-up.

I haven’t cleaned my chimney in years and I’ve never had a problem. Why should I worry now?

A chimney fire can happen at any time, regularly cleaning your chimney can help reduce and prevent a chimney fire. Creosote burns at a very high temperature. In many cases heat and sparks from the chimney cause the fire to spread to roofs and surrounding buildings. A chimney fire is difficult to extinguish, and the call out for the fire brigade to a chimney fire is €700. In many countries EU regulations are in place obliging homeowners to have a professional sweep the chimney annually.

Do I need to clean my chimney by law?

Most EU countries already have in place regulations that require home owners to have their chimneys cleaned by a professional at least once a year. These regulations will very soon be enacted in Ireland as the act of chimney sweeping is deemed a public safety service.

I always clean my chimney myself, why should I get the services of a professional?

Carbon monoxide is a silent killer, around 40 people a year die in Ireland due to carbon monoxide poisoning. We provide a full inspection of your chimney and flue using CCTV. This helps us identify and then repair any problems we might find. This CCTV inspection should be performed by a professional at least once a year, and everyone should be using a carbon monoxide alarm. Stoves will often have tight angles in their flue setup and traditional sweeping kits are not a safe or effective means of cleaning. We use the latest equipment to make sure we don’t do any damage to the chimney flue or stove during our work.

The Boru 400F With AshClear System

Boru 400F AshClear System solving the problem of ashThe Boru 400F AshClear, our first Boru stove to implement the exclusive new AshClear System. The Boru 400F also eliminates the need for an ash-pan, therefore there is less work and mess when it comes to dealing with the ash from your stove.

In addition to the impressive 7.1kW output, the Boru 400F also includes as standard, Airwash and C02 Burn Technology. The easy to use Airwash makes sure that you have clear glass to enjoy the ambience created by the natural flames, while the C02 Burn Technology will ensure a full and clean burn due to the introduction of extra oxygen into the firebox after the initial combustion. As well as the offer of an extended 5 year warranty, the Boru 400F has a lot to offer.

A hassle free, simple design that works with most standard ash vacuums, as a result, the AshClear System promises to make the problem of ash a thing of the past. Depending on the fuel being used, the AshClear System has the capacity to store up to 3 weeks of ash. Due to the variable amount of ash produced by different fuels, depending on the fuel used, there may be a need to vacuum the system more regularly.

The AshClear System collects the ash from your stove, and then using any standard ash vacuum, you simply connect the vacuum to the ash collector and vacuum out the ash. Due to the collection system being designed to work directly with almost any ash vacuum, as a result, there is no need for an ash pan. Consequently there are no ash clouds and mess when it is removed. It couldn’t be easier. With a great looking design and first class build quality; that you can expect from every Boru stove, the Boru 400F is probably Boru Stoves finest stove yet.

Summer Shows With Boru Stoves

Summer is here and as everyone forgets all about heating and the cold dark winter, here at Boru we are getting ready to hit the road. We have a calendar of summer shows and events that we embark upon every year. We love to get out and meet our customers and give them a chance to avail of special offers and get all their heating needs sorted before their minds turn back to lighting up for the winter.


Summer shows, Boru Stoves mobile display unitThis weekend Boru Stoves will be exhibiting at the Cork Summer Show with our retail partner Brooks in the Curraheen Showgrounds, Co. Cork. The Cork Summer Show has been a highlight in Cork for over 200 years. The show will be running from Saturday 18th to Sunday 19th June 2016 and will include a mix of agriculture, food, music, home, garden, crafts, equipment, animal husbandry, entertainment, and retail stands. There is something for everybody so you will be guaranteed a great day out for the whole family.

Summer time might seem like an unusual time to be thinking about heating, but, it is the perfect time to upgrade an old heating system or to upgrade to a stove. Depending on the type of stove being fitted, and the chimney it is being fitted into; this can mean a period of time with no heating. This is why it is best to fit a stove during periods of warm weather when the heating will not be missed, especially if you are thinking about fitting a boiler stove.

Over the next few months Boru Stoves will be at several events with our retail partners, ready to offer you expert advice on our stoves, and how to get the most from your own stove. As well as some summer shows we will also be running special events in the stores of our retailers, so keep an eye out if you are thinking about upgrading your heating system.

Heat Hero – Improving Your Solid Fuel Boiler

Heat Hero

Boru Stoves has recently become aware of a great new product that has come onto the home heating market. The Heat Hero is a great new device that increases the efficiency of solid fuel central heating systems. The Heat Hero has been independently tested by CISD, (Centre for Industrial Services & Design) and is proven to increase heat circulation by 48% compared to other heating systems.


Heat Hero Wins SEAI Award

SEAI Award
The Sustainable Energy Association of Ireland (SEAI) has awarded Heat Hero a Best Innovative Product at The Energy Show, Product of the Show Awards.

Heat Hero was short listed along with ten other products as a finalist for the Best Innovative Product. It was then subjected to a rigorous assessment process over three weeks by a panel of six highly qualified and experienced professionals.

The system can also be retro-fitted inexpensively to turn a poorly running heating system into a very efficient heating system. It is ideal for new installations and for integrating a solid fuel boiler/stove with an oil boiler.


Key Benefits:

  • The gravity flow and return is completely safe and open.
  • Both manifolds can be fitted anywhere on the gravity flow and return.
  • There is a flow injector directing the water out from the stove and into the radiators.
  • There is a return injector directing the water out from the radiators and into the stove.
  • There is a cylinder injector directing the flow around the cylinder keeping the cylinder coil hot.
  • The return manifold separates the cold radiator water from the hot gravity water in the cylinder coil.
  • Balancing valves are fitted on the radiator flow and the cylinder injector flow, which controls both the radiator and cylinder circulation when the pump is on.
  • Only one circulation pump is needed, (5m, 6m, 7m, 8m) head pump can be used depending on the amount of radiators and the size of the stove in the house.
  • It can be fitted to existing pipework.
  • It will heat all of the radiators evenly.
  • It will increase the life span of the grate and baffle plate in the stove.
  • There are no moving parts, so no maintenance is ever required.
  • There is full technical telephone back up available.

Some of the problems solved by the Heat Hero are:

  • All of the radiators not heating.
  • Not enough hot water.
  • The system not allowing the oil and solid fuel boiler to run together.
  • Banging noises coming from the boiler stove.
  • Burning too much fuel and not getting enough heat to the radiators.
  • Water pitching into the expansion tank in the attic.

splitters

These are just some of the problems that can arise with a solid fuel central heating system. By fitting the Heat Hero you are eliminating any potential problems and fitting the most efficient system available.

Boru Stoves New AshClear System

Boru Stoves 400F with AshClear System solving the ash problemBoru Stoves introduce our new AshClear System. The stove market is becoming increasingly competitive in Ireland. Every company is looking for the next leap forward in stove evolution; to give them an edge in the market. Several barriers to buying a solid fuel appliance became evident when talking with our retailers. One issue in particular was raised by consumers time and time again; this was the problem of ash.

Anybody who has experience of an open fire or a solid fuel appliance will understand the ash problem and accepts there will be a certain amount of daily cleaning required to keep on top of it. When Boru Stoves approached this problem, our team were surprised that there was almost nothing on offer to address the issue of ash. One of the few options available was the AshVac. The Boru Stoves team felt that this fell short of a complete solution.

Dermot Fitzgerald Managing Director at Boru StovesDermot Fitzgerald Managing Director at Boru Stoves: “Here at Boru Stoves, we are constantly looking to improve and innovate when it comes to our products. Rather than looking at what other stove makers are doing and copying them, we prefer to look at what they are not doing. We look at the problem areas for consumers that are not being addressed; this serves as a starting point for our product innovation program. When it came to the problem of ash, we were very surprised at how little was available in the current market. The AshVac has been available for years but it is only a piece of the puzzle, we wanted to develop a unique system that would eliminate the mess caused by ash completely.”

So, with the AshClear System, Boru Stoves have eliminated the need for an ash pan. The awful mess that goes along with removing and emptying it is therefore reduced. The new AshClear System is integral to the stove and is used in combination with an AshVac that is available in any good hardware, DIY, or Home Store. The AshClear System only needs to be vacuumed every three weeks, meaning even less mess and work for consumers.

Boru Stoves AshClear System


• No more ash clouds
• No more ash pan
• Works with most standard AshVacs
• 3 weeks ash capacity
• Low maintenance

The AshClear System is very easy to use. The ash collects in a container beneath the stove, then simply connect the AshVac and remove the ash. The system is very easy to use because of the uncomplicated design. As a result of this uncomplicated design, very little can go wrong with the AshClear System.

Boru Stoves launched the Doras Fire Door in 2009 so that people could still keep their open fireplace without needing to install a stove. With some fireplaces giving out an efficiency rating of 15%, the Doras manages to bring that efficiency up to a whopping 68%. That increases the efficiency of your fireplace by 53%.

Some of the features of the Doras Fire Door

We have a dedicated section on our website about fire fronts for open fires which is the Doras’ main information page but here is some of the key features:

  • It has an efficiency rating of 68%
  • Increases the output of your back boiler
  • You can control your open fire
  • Fits most 16″ – 18″ fireplaces

Frequently asked questions

Here are some of the questions and answers to the Doras we get asked here in Boru

  1. Can I install this myself?

    • Yes you can. Like most fire fronts for open fires, this is a DIY job. Our manual comes complete with step by step instructions on how to install the Doras.
  2. Does it increase the output of heat to my room?

    • Like all fire fronts for open fires, the Doras is intended as a unit to cut down on fuel consumption, not to generate more heat. Where a back boiler is fitted, the Doras will heat the water much more efficiently.
  3. How is the Doras installed?

    • It is installed with a series of bolts and clamps. The installation instructions are in the manual and it takes less than an hour to install. All installations must be carried out in accordance with the fitting manual. Boru  Stoves cannot be held liable for faulty workmanship. All installations must be carried out in accordance with local building regulations.
  4. Do I need to take the damper off my existing back boiler and put on your damper when installing the Doras?

    • This varies from back boiler to back boiler. You must contact your boiler manufacturer for more information or Boru Stoves on 0504 59033 or email sales@borustoves.ie

Changing The Glass On Your Stove

One of my favourite things about a stove is the fact that you can maintain the cosy ambience that you get from an open fire. From time to time however, accidents can happen. Many of us will find that we need to replace cracked, or cloudy glass. Luckily changing the glass on your stove is relatively straight forward and simple. Cloudy glass is often caused by burning fuel with a high moisture content, or paper, cardboard or plastics that contain chemicals. Only ever burn trusted fuel in your stove. One of the main causes for cracked glass is overloading the fire box. A stray log can crack the glass as the door is closed, or as logs shift during a burn they can fall against the door. Being careful loading fuel and cleaning your glass regularly will help to ensure that your glass will last for years.

In this handy guide, ‘Changing The Glass On Your Stove’, we will walk you through the simple process of removing your old glass and then fitting the new glass. This is a very simple process and should take no longer than 30 minutes. You will need, a 6mm spanner. A pair of tough gloves for handling broken glass. 12mm x 3mm self-adhesive stove rope. High temperature silicone adhesive and the replacement stove glass. All these materials should be easily obtained from your local Boru Stoves Stockist. If you have any problems finding these parts you can contact Boru Stoves directly for assistance. Remember to always use genuine Boru Stoves parts to ensure you do not invalidate your warranty.

1. Remove The Door Of Your Stove

You should begin by removing the door of your stove. This will make removing the old glass and fitting the new glass much easier. Wearing tough gloves, open the door and ensure that any loose pieces of glass are removed before removing your door. The door of your Boru Stove can then be removed very easily by lifting it off the hinges [Fig 1] [Fig 2] [Fig 3]. Ensure you have a suitable surface to place the door on to work without damaging it.

2. Remove The Broken Glass

Using your 6mm spanner, you should remove the nuts holding the clips in place [Fig 4]. A lubricant such as WD-40 can help to loosen sticking nuts, then fully remove the clips. You should then be able to safely remove any remaining glass [Fig 5]. You should now remove the existing rope seal that may be left behind after removing the glass. Once removed, be sure clean the area where the old seal was placed to remove any dust or debris [Fig 6].

3. Apply New Rope Seal

You are now ready to apply the new rope seal. Using a 12mm x 3mm self adhesive high temperature rope seal, begin in the bottom right hand corner [Fig 7]. Be sure to extend the seal beyond the edge of the opening by around 12mm [Fig 8], this will allow you to create a snug seal with the other end of the rope, ensuring you have an airtight stove. Work your way around the rest of the door taking time to follow and contours or curves that the door might have [Fig 9]. Finally, if needed, trim the rope so that the two ends meet and create a snug seal. You should place your glass on the seal and make sure that the seal is within the edge of the glass and that there are no points where the glass will not be sealed against the stove door. Once you have made sure of this, you can put the glass to one side.

Apply your new seal

Leave an overlap of the seal past the edge of the glass opening

4. Fitting The New Glass

When the seal is in place we need to apply a small amount of high temperature silicone adhesive. Apply a small amount onto the entire length of rope seal that you have just fitted [Fig 10]. You can then sit the glass into place, be careful to align your glass correctly before making contact with the prepared seal. Apply a very small amount of pressure around the edges of the glass to ensure a tight seal with the adhesive [Fig 11]. You should now replace your clips, if any clips or nuts are damaged or missing, you should be able to obtain these from a Boru Stoves Stockist. Once the clips are in place, you should add a washer and then tighten the nut into place [Fig 12]. The nuts should be finger tightened only. Be very careful not to over tighten the nuts, if in doubt, err on the side of caution. The glass is fragile and concentrated pressure can easily crack the glass, the glass is heat resistant, not impact resistant. With the glass now fitted you can hang the door back onto your stove.

Changing The Glass On Your Stove

The glass on a stove is a part that is commonly replaced, similar to the windscreen on a car. Many factors can effect the life of glass in a stove, and accidents do happen. If there is damage to the glass on your stove, or the seal has degraded to allow air in, this will effect the performance of your stove. To ensure your stove is operating safely and at optimum efficiency, you should check the glass and seals on your stove once every six months. If in doubt, replace the glass, it is relatively inexpensive and with just a small amount of DIY you should be able to ensure that your stove operates efficiently and safely for many years to come.

If you have any questions with regards to this procedure, or if you are having problems finding replacement parts, please contact us here at Boru Stoves and we will be happy to help.
