  1. 1

    Order a fuel that is a dried and refined form of lignite made into briquettes, such as Woodcoal Briketts. These are approved by HETAS and will burn overnight, according to Woof! Wood Fuel. After you take delivery, store them somewhere dry so they do not perish. Bring some to your stove just before you plan to go to bed.

  2. 2

    Open the stove door. Use kindling and paper to prepare the fire. Place kindling on the floor of the stove. Twist or screw up sheets of old newspaper and add them to the kindling. Place 5 to 10 briquettes on top.

  3. 3

    Open the air vents on your stove. Strike a match. Light the newspaper. Close the stove door. Add more briquettes and adjust the air vents to produce the required heat output when the fire is going. The stove should burn all night.

Tips and warnings

  • If your stove is already alight, add more briquettes before going to bed. Close the stove door. Adjust the air vents.
  • Put a fireguard around the stove for safety during the night.
