Top Fireplace Wood Burning Tips
Whether you're having a new fireplace installed or you need fireplace repair Houston, once your fireplace is up and running, there are a few important things you should know. Here are a few tips to remember.
Use 'seasoned hardwood' in your fireplace. This is considered one of the best types of firewood to use in your fireplace.
Try to avoid using 'green' unseasoned firewood. The reason why many experts recommend not using green unseasoned firewood is because it can deposit creosote inside of your stove and chimney. Plus, this type of firewood burns at around 60 percent of the fuel used in dry wood.
Dry wood is basically a type of firewood that has been dried for about 12 months in a well-ventilated location. Hardwoods are made from Fir or Oak - which is considered trees that are slow growth.
Then you have softwoods. Softwoods are considered spruce or pine. These wood types are known as fast growth trees. The type of wood you choose will ultimately affect how easily you start a fire and how long it will last. The longer the better!
