Wood To Burn In Your Woodstove
it comes to wood you can burn just about any type of wood in your stove
as long as it does not contain glue or some other type of man made
substance. That means no plywood or laminate material.
best type of wood to burn is hardwood and if you have this type of wood
in your area then you will definitely have the advantage over those who
can only burn softwood. How to determine the difference without
knowing is to wait till the wood is dry and when you pick up similar
sized pieces of the two woods one will be a lot heavier. This
will quickly shed some light for you and the reason we do not try to do
this comparison when they are wet is because soft wood will hold or
contain a lot of water. Some pieces can be heavier because so
much water is inside.
you live in a farming community then apple and cherry are your best
bets. People who live in the midwest and east you will find
maple, hickory, birch, and mahogany as your hardwoods.
hardwoods include hackberry and ironwood. Many pine trees are
softwood in my opinion and they will not burn as long. However,
tamarac is one wood that woodburners love. The reason is that it
will burn longer and any time you can get wood to burn longer it will
also burn hotter.

Dollar Bill and Wood Stoves Guide to Better
you currently own a fireplace insert or stove have you ever done the
dollar bill test on the woodstove door? If not, this is something
you should do every year and especially when you have a new wood stove.
To do this test (make sure the stove is cold) simply place a
dollar bill between the door seal and the stove. Shut the door
and try to pull the dollar bill out. If it comes out then tighten
the door and if it doesn't come out easily, then you are set.

it or not, picking a good chimney and chimney pipe can save
your home from a fire. We thought we had the best stove pipe at the
time but little did we know after 15 years the contractor built the
stove to close to the floor joyce and it started a major fire in our
home. Since that time we've researched and found Dura Vent and
Direct Vent as the top 2 chimney pipe manufacturers. Both
come with double or triple walled pipe and some pipe contain insulation
between the layers.
