What can we help you with?

How often should I have a service carried out?

We do recommend that you have the appliance serviced at least once annually, but this can vary depending on what you’re burning. It is always best to check your appliance manufacturer’s instructions and adhere to their suggested timeframes. 

If you should ever sell your property or look to obtain home insurance, some providers will want to see a record of maintenance works. You can ask your HETAS Technician to provide this following your service.

What does a service involve?

It is best practice to regularly clean out your appliance of ash, cleaning the glass and checking that all the appliance controls are working smoothly. 

Your HETAS Approved Servicing Technician will check over all aspects of your installation including things such as door rope seals, air intake and Carbon Monoxide alarms.  

Each appliance is different, so it is always worth checking your manufacturer’s operating manual for servicing in-depth guidance. 

How do I safely dispose of ash from my appliance?

Hot and cooling ashes can be a fire and carbon monoxide hazard. Always make sure that you leave sufficient time after a fire to let the ash cool and keep the door to the stove closed. Ensure that all disposing of ash is done so with the correct equipment, such as safety gloves and a galvanised steel or metal ash bucket that can be sealed to collect all the unwanted ash. 

Slowly transport the container outside of your house and dispose of it in a designated area. Take your time to remove the ashes to avoid any ash spreading across your room. Do not allow ash to collect in the bucket inside your house for any period of time.

Some stoves operate with a small amount of ash, so it is always worth checking your manufacturer’s operating manual for servicing in-depth guidance
