Tips for your wood burning stoves and fireplaces

As temperatures drop and daylight savings time has come and gone, minds wander to thoughts of sitting in front of a warm fire with a good book . Here are some tips for a safe and warm  winter.

Burn only dry, well-seasoned wood that has been split properly. Properly seasoned wood is darker, has cracks in the end grain, and sounds hollow when smacked against another piece of wood.

  • Build hot fires. A smoldering fire is not a safe or efficient fire.
  • Regularly remove ashes into a metal container with a cover. Store the container of ashes outdoors on a cement or brick slab (not on a wood deck or near wood).
  • Keep a fire extinguisher handy.Chopping wood can be one of life’s most enjoyable tasks. There is an art to woodsplitting and using the proper tools is important. It is also critical to keep your woodpile dry, bug free and protected.  To make hauling your cut wood easier on your back, the Super Chuck Log Carrier is only 24″ wide, and able to fit through interior doors and has a 20″ wheel handle that makes it easy to navigate through rough terrain.
