brrrr, yes, it's turned chilly here too. you can start by looking here http://www.aga-web.co.uk/agatech/fuel2.htm and determining is it oil-fired or wood? however, i do have some news that might warm you up - have a look at my blog!
Thanks for the link Nath!Over to you...
I'm sorry I can't help, but I'm glad that Nath could ;) Good luck with getting your Aga going. Kx
I like how hiro is helping! (so cute!)I think my husband has used one before.....but I am not sure how to do it! It looks beautiful tho!
Oh I adore your home and i love aga stoves, how cozy would that be.We burn coal in Alaska, at least my family does it washes up on the beach in chunks. I love the smell of a wood fire.
har en liknande. det är bara att mata in. fast nu ska jag inte gå in på onödiga detaljer kanske men..vad är det ni behöver hjälp med mer exakt? vi eldar i både vedspis, kakelugn o kamin. hoppas ni får igång den där finingen. det är väl sotat och inspekterat får man hoppas. vi får inte elda i vår kakelugn än innan den är om-murad... *burr* SNART i hope.trevlig hushelg! :D :D (ser förresten ut att finnas värmande aktiviteter) :)
brrr! Good luck, it's a handsome old stove!
What yo want to do- by the looks of the windows- is insolate the windows. Trust me it will help! Measure your windows and go to your hard ware shop. Buy some clear plastic- the stuff they use in photo frames when they don't use glass. Put it into your window and you can seal it with a little tape. Come the spring you can take them out and use them next year. Very good, works really well!
The really thick plastic- plexiglass I think its called. =) Buy some space heaters too... ah... they are good at gettting the room to an ambient temperature. What can I say? I grew up in scotland. We had no central heating and no double glazing. I love modern mod cons!! =)
Your house looks so lovely! (and the cat too!)I think what you could do is to insulate the windows like Gray said. There is a simple trick that you buy white "limpapper" (paper tape with glue) and glue that with water so it will cover the gap between the window and the frames. Just leave the one window you want to open without it. Usually that's done with the inner window but if you have only one glass, you can try it with that too. The good thing with that tape is that it shouldn't leave any marks when you take it off on summer.I have similar kind of stove in my summer house. They are great for cooking and why not for heating too. If it's not been on use for years, i would call the chimney sweeper (sotare på svenska?) first. Then just give it a try. The beginning can be little smoky but once you become friends, those things are just wonderful.
Thanks for handy and good tips ladies!We did make it today - we got the stove running (with wood), and it works just great! It's heating the house in a very pleasant and nice way. Just like you said Emmi, it was a bit smoky at first but not so very much. We will contact a chimney sweeper in spring so he or she can check all the stoves in the house. We have three tile stoves except for the AGA stove, so I belive it's necessary.Emma, ja det var ju bara att mata in i princip. Vi rådslog med en rar granne som rådde oss att ta det lite pö om pö till en början så att saker och ting inte skulle spricka. När vi väl fick fyr på det så brann/brinner, och värmer det otroligt bra. Vet att förra ägaren också eldat, men sotarn ska bokas till våren!
Oooh you got an aga!!! I'm so envious. I love agas.
I am so in love with hiro. :P
