  • Above 350°C: Wasting energy, may damage woodstove, safety hazard. Over-firing a metal stove consumes wood without generating additional room heat, because excess energy is lost up the stovepipe. Higher temperatures will often be reached on initial firing, but are not advised for continuing operation.
  • 200°C – 350°C: Ideal operating efficiency. Complete combustion, safest operation.
  • 200°C: Smoky, dirty fire, safety hazard. Burning too cool results in incomplete combustion, causing formation of hazardous soot in chimney.
