A fireplace is just the thing on a cool autumn evening. It’s so relaxing to sit in front of a crackling fire after a long day of raking leaves or chopping wood. If you have been out chopping wood, make sure that you don’t use that fresh-cut wood until it’s been properly cured, which won’t be for at least six months, but longer is even better! Whether you have a fireplace that needs to be updated or if you want to add a fireplace or stove to your home, give The Stove Store a call now. The sooner you call, the better the chance is of getting a beautiful new stove installed in time for cold and snow!
Cutting Fire Wood
As mentioned above, when using wood in your fireplace, it’s important to make sure you don’t use the firewood right away. Wood contains lots of water, and if you don’t let it set, or cure, for at least six months, enough of that moisture will still be in the wood to make your fire a smoky mess! Cured wood will burn cleaner and more efficiently, and that will make your fire burning experience much more enjoyable. But if you want to avoid all of the stress of making sure that the wood is cured properly, as well as the work of cutting, storing, and laying firewood for a fire, there’s a great option for you: a pellet stove or fireplace!
Benefits of a Pellet Burner
When it comes down the line, the number one reason to choose a pellet-burning appliance is convenience. With a pellet burner, all you have to do is go to the store and buy the pellets, load them into the storage hopper, then flip a switch and the pressed sawdust pellets will be augered into your device and burn, cleanly and efficiently. A pellet burner can be ninety percent or more efficient, and that means your home will be warmer and your pocketbook will be fuller.
Buying pellets is a piece of cake as well. Rather than having to go out and cut firewood, or even buy wood that may or not be cured, all you need to do is go to your local hardware store and buy them, bring them home, and store the bags in the storage area until you’re ready to use them. They’re environmentally friendly as well.
