Wood Heating Information
It is very important to have dry, well seasoned wood and burn it mindfully. Wet wood and poor burning is what causes a chimney fire. Creosote has fuel left in it, which means you are not getting all the heat out of your wood and will likely have a chimney fire.
Where there is smoke there is fire. Well this is not necessarily true anymore with the stoves of today. Once your stove has been loaded and damped down properly, a new EPA stove will have only heat waves coming out of the chimney.
A wood stove insert can be a great energy saver if you have an old open fireplace in your home. An insert will close off the draft and provide a more efficient heating system for your home.
The flue lining in a masonry chimney can crack due to chimney fires, or poor construction of the chimney. When this happens a new stainless steel liner is required.
Another thing to look for, is the required 2'' clearance to structural framing that both masonry and factory built chimney requires.
Factory built chimney makes it possible to install a new wood stove in almost any location. Most brands have a 25 year life expectancy and are an affordable and simple way to install a wood stove in your home. Wood stoves also have less draft restriction when installed above a stove and located as close to the ridge of the home as possible.
