  5. Our flue pipe is showing signs of going brown, is this normal? 08/12/2021

  6. Why does my Pyroclassic not get as hot as traditional 'black box' style wood fires? 08/12/2021

  7. What proportion of heat comes from the back of the fire and the flue in comparison to the front and sides? 08/12/2021

    We have not carried out any testing with the SmartBurn in the Pyroclassic so we have no official data to go from and based on the limited knowledge we have of it there is little to suggest that it would make any significant difference to the burn environment inside a...
