The main questions and answers about stoves and heating.

During the first few heating cycles, the paint on the heating unit is hardened and may smell. This is why it is important not to exceed the maximum allowed heat output of the fireplace stove. During the first 4-5 heating cycles, ensure good air circulation in the room with the heating unit and insulate it from other rooms to prevent the smell from spreading; also, remove any small animals and birds from the area with the varnish vapors. It is also recommended you turn off water aeration in aquariums during this period. As soon as the paint is fired, the smell will disappear.
