Do you have any wood burning tips?   

  1. If your firewood bubbles, hisses with steam out of the ends as it heats up on the fire, the wood is wet or green, and needs to be seasoned longer before burning.
  2. Never try to make a load of fuel burn longer than 6 to 8 hours. Many air appliances can burn for long extended periods, resulting in heavy creosote deposits.
  3. Operate appliances with their draft control wide open for approximately 20 to 25 minutes periodically each time firewood is added, or until the fresh load is totally engulfed in flames. This will heat up the flue to help solidify the liquid creosote deposited by the previous load.
  4. Never try to clean a chimney by deliberately starting a chimney fire. Have the chimney professionally cleaned at least once a year.
