Wood stoves are pure awesomeness. If you are lucky enough to own one or are thinking about investing in one to save money and be more self reliant these great tips are for you.
When you start using a wood stove to heat your house, there is a sense of enjoyment and fear. I will explain. When I first used my wood stove I had it going perfectly fine for 2 or 3 weeks until I woke up to a room full of smoke!
I had a blockage in the flute and it was all my fault, I was using the wrong type of fuel. I went for the briquettes and not the wood I had readily available in my back yard. I learned from my mistake and now I have been using wood to heat my home for 3 years, no problems.
These 10 tips will keep your stove at its peak and give you more efficient heat… if you find this useful consider sharing with your friends.
