Analyze the Three Elements That Affect the Burning of Fireplaces

Expanding on the factors affecting the success of Fireplaces and the reasons behind the extinguishing of furnace flames, it is evident that three main elements play a crucial role - normal fuel supply, sufficient air flow, and pumping force from the flue. These conditions form the basis for analyzing the most common causes of continuous fire extinguishing.

One significant cause is the insufficient pumping force that leads to the expulsion of exhaust and flue gas from the fire, thereby affecting the external freshness outside the Fireplaces. Several factors might contribute to this insufficient pumping force, including low flue height, excessive cold air in the flue, unstable air pressure due to windy weather, decreased flue size, or blockages caused by ash, oil, bird's nests, or other debris. Regularly cleaning the flue to eliminate these obstructions is essential for maintaining optimal functioning and maximizing the use of Fireplaces.

Another common cause is the use of the wrong wood, particularly adding larger logs that hinder the fire's development in its early stage, impeding better combustion in wood-burning Fireplaces. To ensure the correct ignition of the fire source, it is recommended to follow specific procedures. First, place dry cork tablets around the igniting material. Then, add a small amount of wood initially and adjust the amount of air intake in Fireplaces according to personal needs once the fire is burning normally. Pine wood, being faster-burning, is suitable for quick ignition, while hardwood, such as ashwood, can be added later for a longer-lasting fire and greater heat output. It is important to leave enough space between logs to allow for proper airflow, striking a balance between adequate spacing and minimal heat loss between the logs.

Additionally, using wood with a water content exceeding 20% can extinguish the fire. It is necessary to ensure the proper combustion and evaporation of excess water before achieving optimal results. Higher moisture content requires more energy, and burning moist wood produces more smoke and exhaust gas, contributing to the accumulation of soot in the Fireplaces flue. Therefore, it is advisable to always use wood with a maximum water content of 20% and employ a humidity meter to check the moisture level before usage.

Moreover, a common misunderstanding regarding the correct use of Fireplaces ventilation holes can result in insufficient oxygen supply, leading to flame extinguishment. The ventilation holes should not be blocked, as they play a vital role in providing adequate oxygen for combustion. Depending on the furnace model, the bottom ventilation port can usually be closed, and the burning speed on the top of the ventilation port can be managed. As the fire progresses, the wind door can be gradually closed while simultaneously closing the ventilation holes. This technique not only helps control the fire but can also increase the heat output of Fireplaces.

In conclusion, understanding the factors affecting Fireplaces' success and addressing the reasons behind fire extinguishing incidents is crucial for optimal performance. Ensuring sufficient pumping force, using the right type of wood, maintaining proper airflow, and correctly managing the ventilation holes are essential aspects to consider. By following these guidelines, the heating and fire-watching experience can be greatly enhanced.
