Important Do’s and Don’ts

  • DO call a chimney professional when converting from oil to gas or replacing existing boiler/furnace.
  • 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.
  • DON’T burn artificial logs in a woodstove unless they are specifically designed for woodstove use.  Artificial logs can dirty the chimney much faster than regular wood, and can be hazardous in certain situations.
  • DON’T burn treated lumber, trash or anything other than wood in your fireplace or woodstove.
