Use pellets or firewood

Aduro Hybrid allows you to switch between environmentally-friendly and CO2 neutral heating from wood pellets combined with the cosy ambience of firewood. You can seamlessly swap between firewood and pellets at any time. You can add firewood while using the pellet function, or ignite firewood using pellets.

Use firewood in Aduro Hybrid

Firing with firewood

We recommend regular use of firewood, as this cleans the combustion chamber and optimises combustion. You can always use the wood function  regardless of whether the power is out or at other interruptions. 

We recommend the use of split hardwood that has been stored outdoors under cover for at least 1 year and has a moisture level of max. 18%. Wood that has been stored indoors has a tendency to become too dry and will burn too quickly. The wood should be chopped into logs with a diameter of approx. 10 cm and a log length of max. 39 cm. By using wet firewood, it increases the risk of producing soot, smoke and other environmentally damaging by-products.

Fire with pellets in your Aduro Hybrid stove

Firing with pellets

You should only use Ø6 mm pellets with a maximum length of 40 mm – type ENplus quality A1. We recommend that you use pellets of a good quality – and preferably bright pellets instead of dark pellets. The quality of the wooden pellets has a direct influence on the noise level, the efficiency, and the cleaning interval of the stove.

Aduro Hybrid requires a stable chimney draft

Aduro Hybrid is a unique product that does not work like a regular pellet stove; instead, it requires a natural chimney draft. This is a prerequisite for the stove to work with firewood and without electricity. It is therefore not a typical pellet stove that blows smoke into the chimney and can run for long periods of time on wood pellets. The operating time – before light cleaning is required – depends on the level of heat, the quality of the wood pellets and the stability of the chimney draft. A stable chimney draft is critical for the successful use of the hybrid stove. Check out our guidelines for the placement of the chimney here.

If you want to improve the quality and duration of combustion while ensuring stable operation, Aduro offers Aduro DraftOptimizer, a smoke exhauster that can improve and stabilise a weak chimney draft.
