5 Safety Tips for Wood-Burning Stoves

Harman Wood Stove Safety TipsYou just got a wood-burning stove installed in your home and you’re super excited about spending nights in cozying up around the fire with friends and family.

Stoves provide a relaxing environment. They are an excellent source of heat and can save you major money on your heating bill each year.

Plus, if you’re selling your home, you’re in luck. A wood stove is often highly sought after by new homeowners.

But, you still need to be very careful when using a wood stove, as they come with many safety hazards. Heating equipment is the leading cause of fires in homes in the U.S. Understanding how to prevent dangerous fires is key to keeping your family safe this winter.

In this article, we’ll go over the top 5 safety tips for wood-burning stoves. Keep reading to find out what they are.

1. Buying the Stove

When it comes to ensuring safety for wood-burning stoves, it all starts with the initial purchase.

When you buy your wood stove, make sure to choose one that is the appropriate size for your needs.

Choosing one that’s too small may tempt you to run it hotter than it’s capable of. This overheating can not only damage the stove itself, but also other parts of your home. This could potentially lead to a house fire.

Choosing one that’s too large can result in under heating, which can have just as dangerous of results as overheating. Under heating can cause creosote to build up in your chimney. Creosote is combustible, and the buildup of creosote is the main cause of chimney fires.

Also, before purchasing a wood stove, be sure to check for any deterioration or damage, especially if you are buying used. And, make sure to avoid buying a stove that was made before 1990.

In 1990, stricter EPA guidelines were enforced on woodstove manufacturers. These guidelines required the stoves to meet stricter emission standards. Therefore, make sure the stove you purchase has an EPA Phase II Certified sticker on it.

2. Installation

After purchasing your stove, the next step is following appropriate safety standards when installing it.

Most wood-burning stoves come with manuals that detail very specific assembly instructions. Make sure to follow these exactly.

If you do not feel comfortable installing the stove yourself, you can always have a professional do it for you.

Otherwise, keep the following installation tips in mind:

Surface

Make sure you choose a surface that’s strong enough to support the weight of the wood stove. There should be combustible flooring below the stove, as well as 12 inches to each side and 18 inches past the front of the loading doors.

Chimney Compatability

Also, before installing, make sure your chimney is capable of accommodating your wood stove. Most chimneys are built to accommodate coal, gas, or oil furnaces. In order to figure out if your chimney is compatible, you will need to have an installer take a look at it.

Stovepipes

In general, it’s best to keep your stovepipes running through your walls and out of the roof as opposed to outside through a wall. Running it outside will cause it to become less efficient due to rapid cooling. This then causes creosote build up.

Gate

Installing a wood stove gate or a wood fence around the stove should be a priority if you have small children or pets.

Stovepipe Thermometers

Stovepipe thermometers help you are cheap and make it easy for you to figure out if you’re firing your wood-burning stoves too hot or too cold. The manufacturer of your wood-burning stove can help you determine the right placement for the thermometer.

3. Maintenance

Once your wood-burning stove is installed, your job isn’t done. Keeping up with the maintenance of the stove will help ensure safety and longevity.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Have a maintenance specialist check your wood-burning stove and your chimney once per year before the heating season starts
  • Check for creosote accumulation before starting up the stove. Do this about every two weeks until you are familiar with the stove’s behavior
  • Plug the top of the flue and then start a small smoky fire to test the soundness of the chimney

4. Light Wood-burning Stoves Properly

Lighting a stove for the first time isn’t as straightforward as many people think it is.

Here are some things to keep in mind when lighting your wood-burning stove:

  • Do not use lighter fluid to light the stove. This could cause an explosion.
  • Instead, use dry wood that’s a mixture of both small and large chunks
  • Do not put charcoal in the fireplace. This can release harmful carbon monoxide into your home
  • Do not burn anything other than wood in your stove
  • Do not make a larger fire than the stove can handle

Also, make sure you choose safe wood to burn in your fireplace. Yes- there are some types of wood that are simply not safe to burn. In general, you’ll want to stay away from burning wood that is either wet or green. These types of wood can cause odor issues, produce an excess amount of smoke, and cause creosote build up.

5. Keep Small Children Away

As we stated earlier, if you have small children in your home or are planning to have small children over, you should definitely build a fence around your wood-burning stove.

Also, even with a fence, you should never, under any circumstances, leave children unattended around wood-burning stoves. All it takes is one second for a child to decide to test the heat of the stove by sticking their hand on it or in it.

Or, if they get too close a spark might fly at them, causing severe burns. This could easily lead to a trip to the emergency room and permanent injury.

Features of Wood Stoves

In the past, wood burner stoves have been associated with smoky-filled air and flying sparks. This is luckily no longer the case. Today’s latest models of wood stoves have improved safety features and improved burn times making it a cost-effective and eco-friendly way to heat your home.

With a wood burning stove, you don’t need to be held hostage to the unpredictable prices of fossil fuels — you’ll be able to heat your home even in a power outage.

Increased efficiency. Today’s wood stoves require less firewood to heat your home. Some high-efficiency models may be eligible for a government rebate.

Reduced particle output. While every wood fire releases particles into the air, many systems are designed to minimize particle exhaust output. In the US, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) sets out acceptable emissions guidelines to improve the air quality and ensure manufacturers meet minimal standards.

Size and heat output. Are you planning on heating your whole house, or perhaps just a room or two? It’s important you speak to one of our knowledgeable sales members who can help you find the right size for your heating needs.

Removable ashpan. Many models of stoves come with a removable liner or ashpan which collects ashes as your wood stove is in use. This makes it easier to clean and needs to be emptied periodically, perhaps weekly if you’re using it daily.

Types of Firewood and Fuel

While technically you could go out and chop your own firewood in Cape Cod or Plymouth, Massachusetts, it’s important that you season the firewood first. Seasoned wood has been cut and allowed to cure or dry anywhere from six to 12 months. This helps reduce the amount of moisture in the logs as drier wood burns better. If you burn “green” firewood that has not been seasoned, it creates more soot, produces less heat and is harder to clean up.

Here are a few other fuel alternatives to traditional seasoned firewood:

Smart Logs. These are long-burning logs that are designed to be cleaner-burning resulting in less odor and easier clean-up. These are made of a combination of hardwood by-products.

Bio Bricks. Made of recycled wood waste in a compressed brick shape, Bio Bricks are easy to store and are designed to produce fewer ashes with longer burn times.

Safety Tips

Whether you decide to purchase Napoleon, Enviro, Harman or Iron Strike wood stoves, some common sense safety tips apply to all wood burning stoves:

Before lighting a fire, open the damper to allow air to circulate and keep it open until the fire is extinguished.

Don’t use too much firewood at once as this is a potential fire hazard and creates excessive amounts of creosote.

Place a fire screen in front of your wood burning stove, especially if you have young children or pets.

Install a carbon monoxide detector outside of your bedroom to alert you of dangerous levels of gas build-up.
