How to use SmartBurn

Lounge Combustion Heater

Lounge Combustion Heater Instructions SmartBurn Placement



Place SmartBurn flat and level towards the front corner of your firebox on a firebrick. This allows the product to "breathe" and also helps to keep the tube flat and level which keeps the ingredients in the casing. A small scattering of ash between the fire brick and SmartBurn is also highly recommended as this creates a "bed" for the device to nestle into.  If using 2 SmartBurns place them on opposite sides of the heater at each front corner.

How many SmartBurns do I need in my Combustion Heater?

  • One SmartBurn is suitable for small to medium sized heaters (under 18sq,180m2 heating area, 18kW or 1800sq ft)
  • Two SmartBurns will be more effective in medium to large heaters (over 18sq, over 180m2 heating area over 18kW or over 1800sq ft). This extra SmartBurn is needed to cope with the increased wood load and heater space.
  • Two SmartBurns will also be more effective in situations where you have a chimney with a bend, a long chimney as with a two storey house or existing creosote buildup in the chimney.
  • Each SmartBurn should last up to 3 months.
