What to keep in mind when preheating an Altech soapstone stove?
Preheating your Altech stove entails lighting your stove using the Swiss method and giving it the time to burn and cool completely. These steps should be repeated 10 to 12 times. Good to know: condensation may appear in the stove during the preheating process. This is nothing to worry about. The condensation will disappear over time.
Like when lighting the stove, it is important to keep the air slide completely open during the preheating process. Use light, finely split firewood to generate lots of heat in little time. The faster your stove reaches the intended temperature, the faster a proper airflow forms. This, in turn, will result in less soot and condensation. This way, you can keep your stove, flue pipe and the environment clean, which will help prevent future issues with the soapstone.
