Once you rake the coal, reload your stove. Add a couple more pieces of dry wood, adding the wood behind the heap of coal. In mild weather light small fires, instead of blazing fires, and at all times do not throw one piece of firewood in your stove at a single time.

With little care and check you can ensure the efficient working of your burner. The improved performance will enhance your satisfaction from the stove. How to tell if your fire is burning correctly: First, look at the fire, if it is burning brightly or not. If light is bright it means that fireplace is burning effectively. The bright and lively flames are result of proper combustion done. When the combustion is proper there is less harmful emission made from the fire, thus it will be healthier if the flames are lively. Once your burner is set on fire, see the amount of smoke it is producing. If there is very little or no smoke and fire seems clean, it is another indication of efficient burning. The incomplete combustion will mark an inefficient stove.

When that inefficient stove is lit, it will produce dark and smelly smoke, which will not only ruin the beauty of your home but would be injurious to


the health of people living in that house. Excess of carbon monoxide when inhaled can prove to be fatal. As a safety measure, you must be careful about the emissions. How your chimney tells you if combustible fumes and smoke is going out of the vents properly. If your chimney is emanating excessive smoke that too is sign of poor combustion. It should be remembered that dull, steady flames are a result of lack of oxygen in the process of combustion. The energy is released from burning process only if the fuel is properly oxidized. These are very small factors but contribute a lot to your as well as your appliance’s life. It depends upon you how much you care for your hard-earned money – the only way to comfort you and your family. Avoiding or overlooking will cost no one but you. So, better is to be a little careful about small things rather than giving way to disasters. No system can be fool proof but it does not mean that one should ignore the safety. Further, there are always chances of human forgetfulness. So always, make sure to install smoke alarms in your house and repeatedly keep checking that they are in order.

In many areas wood is one of the cheapest and most readily available fuels, so a wood-burning fireplace or an enclosed woodstove are more logical, economical choices to make than some of the other models available. However, if you live in an area where wood is scarce and/or expensive, it may be more economical in the long run to purchase an electric or gasburning fireplace. If you are interested in buying a more environmentallyfriendly option, the fireplaces that burn natural gas, alcohol or corn are all excellent choices; a visit to your nearest fireplace vendor will give you a much clearer idea of what you will be looking at in terms of maintenance costs for each of these models.


What are some factors in purchasing a wood-burning stove and fireplace besides cost? Costs aside, you will want to take a close look at the various characteristics of each one. A wood-burning fireplace has a lovely traditional feel to it, and is what most people think of when they think of a fireplace. Wood also has that special distinctive aroma that so many people enjoy, and a fireplace will give all family members and friends the full benefit of the snap and crackle of the flames and that lovely smell of wood smoke. Of course, this is the very reason many people also choose to not purchase a fireplace but prefer to buy a wood-burning stove instead. Many people nowadays have problems with allergies but still want the aesthetic beauty of a wood-burning fireplace, so they will choose an electric or gas-burning fireplace. These will generate heat and come in a wide range of models, and are often an economical choice. Similarly, the pellet-burning stoves and those that burn alternative fuels such as alcohol and corn can be both environmentally- and allergy-friendly choices for families that wish to consider one or both factors. Look around to find the best deals. If, however, you live in an area where wood is the only economical choice for fuel, you might want to consider purchasing an airtight woodstove. These stoves burn wood like a traditional fireplace, but are sealed in such a way as to minimize all allergic effects. While some people feel that woodstoves lack some of the aesthetic appeal of fireplaces, most of them do have doors made of tempered glass that still allow people to see the flames without having to breathe in the smoke, making them a safe and economical choice for many families to enjoy.


Choosing Wood Burning Fireplaces and Stoves What factors should influence my choice of wood-burning fireplace? The first you will need to do before choosing a fireplace is make yourself aware of the wide variety of types of fireplaces that are available. Some fireplaces will burn materials besides wood, such as corn, gas, alcohol and various other types of fuels. These would be worth looking into if wood is not cheaply and readily available in your area, but for this article we will assume you have decided you want a traditional, wood-burning fireplace and are looking at the many different types and styles of fireplace available. We will assume that you will already have ascertained that you can buy wood readily in your area, and now want to choose between the wide varieties of models that fireplace suppliers have to offer. Now that it is a matter of taste in design, you can focus on browsing catalogues and seeing what styles will suit the dimensions and dĂŠcor of the room where it will be installed. Your fireplace and possible legal concerns


It may seem like common sense, but you would be surprised how many people do not think to see if their fireplace meets their local zoning and building laws. You will definitely need to familiarize yourself with the building codes of your locality, as most municipalities have zoning codes that must be satisfied before you can have the fireplace installed. If you have not already done so, be sure to consult a reputable contractor regarding the legality of your building permits for your fireplace installation, or at the very least research your area’s codes and laws concerning fireplaces. This is especially critical because certain areas place restrictions on the type of fireplace that may be installed. Once you are certain you will not encounter legal difficulties with your choice of fireplace, you are ready to go out and start browsing the many types of fireplace available to pick the one that best suits your family’s requirements. Where do I go to find my wood-burning fireplace? There are several different ways to choose a wood-burning fireplace that is right for your family. Many supply stores will offer a showroom of several different fireplace models and will have knowledgeable sales staff on hand to assist you in your decision. The sales staff should know the basics of every unit, such as price, dimensions, availability, or at least be able to look these up on request. These showrooms are good places to take the whole family; make a day of it, if possible, and see as many different models as you can. Some people already have a good idea in mind of what sort of wood-burning fireplace they are looking for, but that is no reason not to do a lot of window-shopping anyway. These types of showrooms can be invaluable because so many different models of fireplace are on display, so they give the customer an even clearer idea of what types of fireplaces are available in a variety of styles and price ranges. European styles are available also, which you can find good deals on these stylish units too.


Ultimately, your choice of wood-burning fireplace should be a balance between appearance and budget. Once you have researched your local zoning laws, examined the wide variety of options open to you and sketched out a rough budget of how much you are willing to spend, you are ready to go out and find the perfect fireplace that will warm your family’s home for many years to come.

Installing Your Wood-Burning Fireplace or Stove


How should I install my wood-burning fireplace or stove? The short answer is very carefully! The longer answer involves a questionhow handy are you, really? Home improvement tasks can be fun and rewarding, and many people choose to improve their repairperson skill by doing odd jobs around the house. However, installing a fireplace is the wrong place to practice your DIY skills. The installation of a wood-burning fireplace or stove is not the same sort of home-improvement task as installing a new cabinet or shelf in your kitchen; it is something very, very serious. You will be handling materials that, if installed properly by a knowledgeable person, will guarantee the long life and safety of your new fireplace for years to come. However, if you are unfamiliar with these materials and/or if you have limited to no experience in handling the sort of insulating materials that come standard with the installation of any fireplace, whether it burns wood, gas or some other fuel, you could be playing a dangerous game with the health and safety of your family, and should reconsider. It is crucial that all materials accompanying your new fireplace or stove be handled by somebody who is well-used to the installation of fireplaces and stoves; not only for reasons of common sense and safety, but many manufacturers will void their warranty of damage is caused by installation by an unqualified person. When it comes to installing fireplaces, you need to call somebody who knows what he or she is doing, and if that person is not you, you should put down the hammer, step away from the fireplace and call a professional! How can I find a good service to install my wood-burning fireplace or stove?


As with choosing any service, the reputation of the company is paramount. Now is not the time to skimp on cost. Call many companies, and ask for several references. You probably will not hear from any disgruntled customers, since companies will not put you in touch with their unhappy clients, but those customers are nonetheless your opportunity to ask how the company operates. Ask how long it took to complete the job, and how this length of time differed from what the company first quoted. Do ask about quoted price versus final price, since wide discrepancies there could be an indication of something wrong. Once you have talked to the customers and picked a few companies that seem promising, call your Better Business Bureau and order reports on each of the companies. A long list of unresolved or serious complaints against the company should be treated with great seriousness; if you are putting the safety of your home and family in the hands of a company, you want them to have as few complaints against them as possible. Finally, once you have narrowed your list down to two or three companies, get price quotes, and go with the one that both fits your budget best and the one with whom you are the most comfortable. What should it cost to install my wood-burning fireplace or stove? There is no real set answer to this question. This will depend on the make and model of fireplace you have picked and the sort of home you live in, as well as the various materials that are being used. Installation prices can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars; once you have found a company you are comfortable with, they should be very up front about the cost of installation. Look around for the deals. Prepare wisely.


Preparing Your Home for Your New Wood-Burning Fireplace or Stove What are some things I should do to prepare my home for my wood-burning fireplace or stove? It is certainly important to make sure that your home is ready for your new fireplace. However, because every unit is so different, it is difficult to come up with a very specific list of how to prepare your home for the installation of your new fireplace. You can also rest assured that if you have done your homework and chosen wisely, your fireplace manufacturer and/or your fireplace installation service will certainly be sure to let you know if there is anything specific to the type and model of stove or fireplace you have chosen that you need to do to prepare for. However, there are some things that you as the customer may want to do in order to be sure that installation goes as smoothly as possible. The first thing you will want to do, particularly if you have chosen to purchase a wood stove, is to arrange for the installation of heat barriers to protect your home from the hazards of a potential fire due to the heat your new stove will generate. This is something that you can try to do yourself, if you are fairly handy, but be certain to check the building codes for insulation against fireplaces and heat before you purchase supplies. If you


were not certain you could meet the requirements, it would be safest to ask your installation service to do the job for you. When readying your home for the arrival of your fireplace and the installation service, look around the room where the fireplace will go. Are there any rugs, curtains or wall hangings near the proposed installation spot that could be a fire hazard? Move them before the installation service gets there; also be sure to take things off the walls that could be knocked down as the movers come in with your fireplace and their equipment. It may be prudent to lay a non-slip runner from your front door to the proposed location for the fireplace, so movers will not track in excess dirt, mud or dust in poor weather. It should also be understood that all children and pets should be removed from the area during installation for everybody’s safety. It depends on the type of fireplace being installed, yet there may also be a considerable amount of dust and debris showered all over your lovely furniture. Use old sheets or painter’s drop cloths to cover anything that cannot be taken out of the room altogether, in order to protect upholstery and wood finish from the hazards of plaster dust and other renovation inevitabilities. What are some problems I should expect when installing my wood-burning fireplace or stove? If you have found a good fireplace manufacturer, and if you have chosen your installation service wisely, your problems should be minimal. Professionals will have a good idea of what to expect, especially if they have done the professional thing and come inside to inspect the area before commencing installation. Nevertheless, it is wise to ask your installation service what you can do to be prepared in the event of an emergency; they


will have the experience necessary to advise you on what might go wrong, and how to prepare for any possible inconveniences that might arise. Check out information for EPA, since you will find some helpful tips in installing your new fireplace or wood burning stove. Prepare wisely. You should not have any problems, especially if you follow proper rules and guidelines. Care and cleaning instructions can help you get the most of your fireplaces.


Care and cleaning instructions for the chimneys of wood-burning stoves and fireplaces Why is it so important that I keep my chimney cleaned? Because regular cleaning of your wood-burning fireplace’s chimney is the surest way to prevent dangerous chimney fires, it is crucial to keep the chimney cleaned on a regular basis. Chimney fires can be relatively harmless if they are very small, but a larger chimney fire is extremely difficult to control and can sometimes be almost impossible to extinguish. A best-case scenario for such a large fire is that it will merely damage the chimney or the liner of the chimney itself. All too often, however, such large chimney fires can spread to the roof of your house or even to the walls, causing a dangerous and potentially very costly fire.


While there is always a small risk of chimney fire, especially with an older chimney and fireplace, this risk can be drastically reduced provided that the chimney is cleaned on a regular basis. Chimneys that are not cleaned on a regular basis are the ones that run the greatest risk of fire, since cleaning reduces the amount of creosote present in the chimney. A chimney that is not cleaned regularly will have the biggest problems with the buildup of creosote, the substance that will cause the chimney fire. Creosote is a substance formed naturally when the wood burns in the fireplace, and carried up into the chimney with the smoke where it will adhere to the chimney walls. Creosote is a dangerously flammable substance and regular cleaning of the chimney is the only way to be sure that creosote is kept to a minimum, which drastically decreases the risk of a fire catching in your chimney that could all too easily spread to the rest of the house. How do I minimize the buildup of creosote in my chimney? Believe it or not, burning a very hot fire in your fireplace is one way to keep creosote levels down. The worst creosote buildup occurs when small fires are burned for a short period of time. A hot fire burned for a long period of time will not produce the same degree of creosote and will actually reduce present levels by a small degree, meaning that regular and consistent use of your fireplace is one way to keep the chimney at least partially cleared. Cleaning your chimney annually can help reduce creosote also. However, there is no real substitute for the regular cleaning of your chimney; don’t skimp on cost, either. While those “chimney-cleaning” logs can be partially effective, it’s best to have a professional company come in at least once annually to do the thing properly. The yellow pages will offer


the names of licensed companies that provide a full cleaning service, and may even entitle you to a deductible on your insurance. How often should I clean my chimney? At a minimum of once a year, certainly, but you should also check the local regulations. Believe it or not, many municipalities actually have laws that dictate how often a chimney must be cleaned; they have realized how many chimney fires can become deadly, and so have instated regulations. Even if your town doesn’t have such regulations, though, your insurance company might; check all that fine print over carefully, and see if there are any stipulations about how often you have to clean your chimney in order to be eligible for coverage against fire. Otherwise, if the fire department were to determine a fire was caused by a poorly cleaned chimney, you might be out more than just a roof! The general tips to help you learn how to care for your fireplace.


General tips for safety when using a wood-burning fireplace or stove Is my stove or fireplace a safety hazard? This can be a tricky question, since the word “hazard� is so loaded. Certainly, anything that involves flame is to be considered a safety concern,


but if proper precautions are taken to ensure the responsible burning of fuels in a fireplace or stove there is no reason that your fireplace or stove should ever need to be considered a hazard. Do remember, though, that the responsible burning of fuels means you should never leave a fireplace or stove unattended for any real length of time. Of course, it may be necessary to leave the room from time to time, and there is no reason to chain yourself to the fireplace to catch every spark that escapes, but follow a few rules of common sense to make it safer. Certainly don’t leave a fire burning in an open fireplace unattended for any real period of time. Even fires in airtight stoves should be checked on periodically to reduce risks of house fires. When it comes to open fireplaces, it is even more important to be vigilant; at most, consider leaving the room for a few minutes or less. If you have young children, they should never be left in the room with the fireplace; take them with you when you go, even if you will only be out of the room for a minute. Nobody knows better than a parent how quick children are when it comes to getting into things that just aren’t good for them! How can I make my open fireplace safer for my children and pets? A good first step is never to leave small children or animals unattended with a fireplace or even with a wood stove, since young children could too easily approach the open fireplace, and they have no concept of the dangers posed by a hot stove. Certainly, no caring parent will ever let a small child find out the hard way that a hot stove burns little fingers if he or she can possibly prevent it. The same goes for pets; train them to stay away from the stove if at all possible. If your cat seems inclined to sleep on top of the stove, either construct a barrier that makes it impossible for her to reach the stovetop, or consider investing in an insulating pad to protect her from the searing heat.


With open fireplaces, a fire screen is crucial. Even if you are in the room with your pets and small children, and even if you are reasonably confident that you can keep them from reaching the fireplace, sparks can still escape and leap an amazing distance. These little cinders can singe pets’ fur or burn babies’ faces, so the simple addition of a fire screen will make it much safer for all concerned; keeping sparks in where they belong. It is also wise to consider that some young children and certain pets are especially sensitive to wood smoke; pet birds are especially sensitive to many aromas, and should not be kept in the same room as an open fireplace if it can be avoided. Furthermore, if your children seem to have difficulty breathing when the fire is lit, you may want to check for allergies to smoke, and investigate airtight alternatives. How to find helpful insight to keep your home safe You will find helpful insight at EPA websites or anywhere that stoves and fireplaces are sold. Take advantage of the free information so that you get the most of your product. Choosing the perfect spot in installation is important.


Choosing the perfect spot for a new wood-burning fireplace or stove How important is it to have the perfect spot chosen for our fireplace or stove? Surprisingly enough, it can be very important indeed to have an ideal spot chosen for your new fireplace or stove. The location you pick affects how the heat from your new fireplace or stove will radiate throughout your house, and it will also affect the aesthetics of whatever room you select as the location for your new fireplace or stove. Since the location will have such an impact on the people who live in your house, as well as a lesser impact on the people who visit you, it is actually very important to consider the location well before the date of installation. Consult your significant other to gain his or her input on the location, and if you find yourselves in conflict, you may even want to bring in the opinions of older children; they can have surprising insights into factors you may not even have considered! What are some factors we need to consider when choosing a place for our new fireplace or stove? One of the first things you will want to take under consideration when deciding the location for your new fireplace or stove is the spread of heat through your house. Obviously, an open-plan home will not present the same dilemma as a more traditional, enclosed style of home; if your home is more enclosed in style, take some time to examine the layout of the rooms and consider to what extent you are willing to rearrange your furniture to accommodate your new acquisition. Think about daily traffic through your house; consider your children, pets and entertainment requirements. Also,


consider the room with the highest amount of traffic; if you have a rarely used front room but a family room where you congregate daily, consider focusing your energy on placing the fireplace or woodstove in that room. That way you can cut heating costs in the other rooms of the house by turning down your primary heating source and using your new fireplace or woodstove to keep the primary family room at a more comfortable temperature. However, I really wanted to put the fireplace or stove somewhere else! Once you have found the location that offers the best heat radiation, take a minute to see what will have to be rearranged to accommodate your choice. Is the choice one that makes sense both in terms of ease of placement and installation, and also in terms of prolonged use? Alternatively, do you think it will turn out to more trouble than it’s worth to put your new fireplace or woodstove in the place you’ve selected as ideal? Should you really have to sacrifice an entire loveseat or armchair to get the ideal placement for your fireplace? You really shouldn’t have to turn your life upside down to make a fireplace fit in if there is a location that is slightly less than ideal in terms of heat radiation but much more convenient in terms of lifestyle and furniture arrangement, then go for it. Once you chosen your location you can start learning new ways to heat your home in a safe way. You have optional accessories also so that you can get the most in your cost saving unit. Feel free to explore more about inserts, glass doors, vents and other accessories to save you money. Various websites online will direct you to links that inform you how to get the most performance in your fireplaces and how to choose options that get you the most in heating your home.


Cleaning your wood-burning fireplace or stove How important is it to clean my fireplace or stove? In the short-term, it isn’t terribly crucial to clean your fireplace or stove out. However, over a period of a few months you would be surprised at how fast ashes can build up in the bed of a wood-burning fireplace or a woodstove. These can become very messy if left untended to, and they can also create less room to build a fire, so it is important that these ashes be kept to a minimum in order to promote the continued beauty and the optimal operation of your wood-burning fireplace or your woodstove. What is the best and safest way to clean the stove? First of all, you are going to have to set aside a good chunk of time, since this can get messy and requires a little preparation beforehand. You will likely want to lay down a small drop cloth around the stove, and be sure to keep small children and pets out of the room, since the last thing you need are inquisitive noses and/or hands poked into a bucket of ashes. You will


end up with a cloudy, sooty mess! Corral pets in a separate room and ask your significant other to mind small children, or wait until nap time, or even arrange for a friend or relative to baby-sit. This is something you don’t want interrupted! You will have to make sure not to use your stove or fireplace at least twenty-four hours before you plan to clean it, since you want to be sure the ashes have cooled off from the last fire. Do not attempt to hasten the process by dousing them with water, as this will make the ashes wet and even harder to clean. Ashes can be removed into a metal or cardboard container by use of a shovel, or you can use a special vacuum meant for the task of removing ashes to extract them from the fireplace or woodstove. Many municipalities will collect cold ashes, but may have special regulations for the container they are placed in. Be sure to check up on this before attempting to put them by the road. Once the ashes are gone, you can use a special wire brush to clean out the damper and the lower part of the chimney. You will need another, stiffbristled brush to clean the bed of the fireplace itself. In addition, you will want to research the various cleaning fluids available before putting any of them into use. As some of them are more toxic than others and require more stringent precautions in the form of masks and ventilation before use. You will then want to let the fireplace or woodstove dry out thoroughly before attempting to light another fire. Yuck! This sounds far too messy for me- are there people who will do this for me? Certainly there are many services available that will either include or focus on the cleaning of your stove. Consult the yellow pages and ask about


charges for regular cleaning; you may find that it is an entirely economical alternative to doing the task yourself (plus, think what you could save on babysitting charges!) You can use the search engine on the Internet also to find cleaning services in your area. Just go to the search engine, type in keywords related to your needs and you will find tons of links. The links will offer you many resources and the ability to type in your area code to find cleaning services in your area. Compare the costs! Are you ready for some remodeling?

Remodeling your wood-burning fireplace or stove


I am bored with my current fireplace or stove; do I have to buy a whole new one? You certainly do not need to buy a whole new fireplace or wood stove to replace your old one simply for the sake of updating its look unless you absolutely want to. Obviously if there are more practical reasons for the replacement, such as a cracked or unsafe unit, then a complete replacement may be necessary, and certainly if you have the finances, and want to really go all-out in upgrading your current fireplace or wood stove, then there is no real reason you should not. However if there is no safety reason for the replacement, and/or if finances are an issue or you merely want to effect a little facelift, you do not need to buy a whole new fireplace or wood stove. There are a number of less expensive alternative options that can provide the same aesthetic overhaul without necessitating the purchase of an entirely new unit, and depending on the sort of new look you are after, one or more of these may be just the minor tweak needed to update that tired fireplace or stove. What are some ways to remodel my current fireplace or stove? There is quite a range of remodeling options open to you, depending on what degree of facelift you want to effect on your fireplace or woodstove. For fireplaces, you may want to consider updating your mantel by painting it a new color, sanding it down and re-staining it, or uninstalling it to be replaced with a new type of wood or stone. You may perhaps consider painting over or even changing the material of the stone or brick, as both can go a long way toward changing the look of your fireplace. For woodstoves it can be a bit more difficult to slap on a coat of paint, although this is certainly not out of the realm of possibility; just remember


to purchase paints that are specifically designed to adhere to such hot surfaces. Another, slightly more expensive way of updating the look of your woodstove is to change the tiles around it; consider a new color, pattern or material of tile. This can go a long way toward updating the look of your old woodstove. How much will this remodeling cost? The answer to this question varies widely depending on what degree of remodeling you have done and who you ask to perform the task for you. An elaborate and well-done remodel can cost a great deal of money but be more than worth it, aesthetically speaking. The materials used to remodel also affect the price; certainly some materials such as marble and more expensive types of wood will set you back more than cheaper alternatives, but more expensive materials can also better withstand the test of time, so take longevity into consideration as well as price. Remember, if you don’t want to go all out for the full remodel, you could conceivably do something as simple as hanging a new painting or mirror over top of the fireplace mantel, or updating the decorations on the mantel itself. You might be surprised how a simple thing like that can change the look not jus of your fireplace, but of the whole room! You can save money on remodeling by shopping around online. Look for the discounts to save you money. Various stores online compete against the other, so often you will find great deals at many of the online stores. Look for clearances and bargains to save additional cash.

Conclusion:


Potbelly, fireboxes, European fireplaces and wood burning stoves have all changed over the years to offer you top quality performance. Many stoves and fireplaces sold today incorporate many features to give you style and cost-efficiency. Remember, if you are buying fireplaces or stoves take time to learn safety, maintenance, cleaning and other details so that you get the most of your appliances. Don’t forget to look for bargains, coupons, discounts and other savings so that you get what you want for less the cost.
