Important dos and don’ts

  • DO check the manufacturer’s guidelines for your wood stove or insert.
  • DO use seasoned hardwood.
  • DO use commercial fire starters if you like. They eliminate the need for tinder and reduce the amount of kindling required.
  • DON’T use charcoal lighter fluid or other flammable liquids. These are extremely dangerous. (Gel fire starters are okay.)
  • DON’T use coal in a wood stove or fireplace unless there are specific written instructions – it will burn, not safely.
  • DON’T burn treated lumber, trash, or anything other than wood in your fireplace or wood stove.
