When it comes to burning things in your fireplace, there are some tips to know just what to burn in your fireplace. Some of the things that you should burn in your fireplace include seasoned wood which offers a quick and warm fire, hardwoods which offer more of a slower burning fire, and lastly softwoods which make for great kindling when it comes to fire making.
- Watching a fire is hypnotizing, and the warmth and aroma only adds to the feeling.
- The best wood is dry, seasoned wood. Wood that is well seasoned has been cut and sitting in a dry location for at least a year—two years is even better.
- If you want a slow burning fire that will get nice and hot, choose oak. This type of wood is fairly abundant, especially in the northern states.
“Well seasoned wood in your fireplace means less creosote, and less creosote means less worry of a chimney fire.”
