Why is smoke coming from my Pyro fire into my room?

There are a few reasons why this could be happening:

  • Negative pressure in the room – this can be caused by a household electric exhaust fan or severe pressure difference in a windstorm. Open a window to equalise the pressure.
  • Severe down draft due to surrounding structures, hills, trees or roof layout.
  • Most commonly, this is an indication your flue is blocked. Clear the obstruction and investigate the cause. Check the moisture of your wood and make sure you are burning good, dry wood. The flue pipe can block very quickly if you are burning wet or gummy wood. Make sure you are using a reliable chimney sweep as the Pyro is different from other wood fires.
