Fireplace Safety Tips!

Facebook Twitter Email

FIREPLACE SAFETY TIPS:

It is important to remember that the glass panels and surface in and around all fireplaces and stoves can become extremely hot due to the high efficiency of these products.

After turning off your gas fireplace or stove, wait for the appliance and glass panel to cool down before allowing anyone to get near it. The glass may remain warm from a lit pilot light. Metal surfaces, such as door frames and grilles, may also get very hot.
Make sure all visitors are aware of the hot temperature of the glass panel of a fireplace or stove. Never leave young children alone near an operating fireplace or stove.

Discuss fireplace and stove safety with children, and make sure they know they should never touch the glass panel of a fireplace or stove.

A physical barrier is recommended if there are children in the house. To restrict access to a fireplace or stove, install an adjustable safety gate to keep young children out of the room and away from the hot surface.

If your fireplace is not equipped with a fire screen or screen door, you may order one through your local dealer or purchase at a home improvement store.
Install a switch lock to prevent children from turning on the gas fireplace.

Keep the gas fireplace remote control out of the reach of children.
Always read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the safe use and maintenance of your hearth appliance.

All hearth products need to be maintained and operated properly in order to function safely and perform at their best. To fully understand the necessary steps involved in proper operation, read the manufacturer’s instruction manual and consult with your local fireplace retailer for information on hearth accessories and safety products.

For additional information on hearth product safety download the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA) Fireplace Safety Brochure or visit the HPBA web site.

“TIPS” are just suggestions for your general information, WoodHeatStoves.com will not be held liable and use of this information is at your own risk.

Don’t wait until it is “Winter” and “Cold” to maintain your heating source. If you have a stove that is older than 10years, consider having replacement parts on hand even if it is functioning well. During peak heating season when demand is high from suppliers and manufacturers for replacement stove parts it can be 2-6 weeks or longer depending on the part needed. Plan ahead and be prepared!  Get ready for winter at the end of winter, don’t wait until fall or later.

What Goes Into Biomass Wood Pellets?

Facebook Twitter Email

You might ask “What is Biomass?”. It’s the vegetable residue of agricultural operations such as growing crops, milling timber, farming cattle and clearing ground.

Residential, or premium grade wood pellets contain nothing else but wood. No glues are needed in the production of pellets.

When the pulped wood or sawdust is forced into the wood pellet die under pressure and heat, natural binding material already present, (lignin), allows the pellet to hold its shape. A premium grade pellet contains very little potential ash. 1%.

Standard, or commercial grade pellets contain more impurities, 3% potential ash. This is because paper, bark, and other flammable additives are included.

It’s important to use the correct grade of pellet for your stove, fire or furnace. Too great a build up of ash can cause the fire to go out, or overload the ash can.

Alternative pellet stove fuels are possible (see link at bottom of page) if you would prefer not to be dependent on only wood pellets, or only corn. These fuels have a high ash content and are best burned in a multi fuel pellet stove.

To make pellets, the raw material must first be cleaned to remove impurities. The clean biomass is then ground in a hammer mill or chipped to a uniform size, which must be less than the thickness of the pellet that will be produced.

While the lignin content in wood is generally enough to bind pellets, other forms of biomass require special conditioning to strengthen them. Sometimes binders such as starch, sugars, paraffin oils, or lignin must be added to make the biomass malleable.

Some pellet stoves are also capable of burning corn either by itself or mixed with wood pellets. When buying corn for burning, it is important that it’s not been treated in any way or the already high ash content will be increased and the emissions could be unpleasant.

What Are The Advantages of Pellet Stove Fuel?

Pellets are clean, easy to handle, and don’t have bugs crawling out of them. Anyone who’s burned logs will appreciate this. Usually packaged in 40lb. bags, they are easy to stack and don’t take up much space. A ton of pellets will stack in a 4′ by 4′ space, four feet high. The stove hopper only needs loading daily. Even less often for furnaces.

The standardisation of pellet size and moisture content means that the burn can be efficiently regulated and the air input accurately controlled. Pellets have a usual moisture level of less than ten per cent. (Logs 20 – 60%).

This gives high heat output, clean burning and low emissions. The thermal value of wood pellets is 5Kwh per kilo, (or 8 – 9 thousand btu. per pound). Two kilos of pellet are equivalent to a litre of fuel oil or a cubic metre of natural gas.

Carbon Neutral Biomass Heating

Biomass is the term given to grown material as opposed to fossil fuel. The carbon absorbed in growth is balanced by carbon emitted on burning, which makes the use of wood pellets neutral. Wood pellet plant is often, but not always, powered by burning wood pellets.

This energy supply is sustainable because the raw materials are renewable.
Trees are not felled just to make pellets. The raw material is already a waste product from saw mills and other users of timber. Converting sawdust to pellets reduces the amount of waste going to landfill.

Another point is that pellets are usually locally made. It would not be economic to transport vast amounts of sawdust across the country, and then bring the pellets back, so it’s the local economy that gains from this low carbon footprint industry.

Where Can I Buy Wood Pellets?

It’s well worth checking where you can buy fuel in your area. First stop would be your local pellet stove dealer, feed store and grocery stores. If the local stove dealer can’t source a supply, they won’t last long. Another good reason to contact a local stove dealer is to find out if they stock parts, and for which makes and models so if you eventually buy online, you’ll know which stoves will be supported.

Year round pellet stove maintenance tips!

Facebook Twitter Email

While pellet stoves are not mechanically complicated, they need consistent maintenance.

Pellet stoves are a great way to save energy and money, but they must be maintained properly. Unlike a wood stove, pellet stoves are operated electrically and have circuits and moving parts. The most important thing a pellet stove owner can do is read the owner’s manual. “Even if you’ve had your pellet stove for ten years, take it out from time to time and read it again. You’ll see something new each time.”

After initial installation:

“The first thing you want to do is check the hopper (where the pellets are held) for spare or foreign parts. Whether the pellet stove is new or used, you want to be sure you’re not running something through the auger (the part that moves the pellets to the feed pot for burning).”  Unless you feel you are skilled enough to do the installation yourself, it’s better to hire a professional. Proper installation and really getting to know your “stove to a T” will lay the groundwork for fewer problems down the line. “If you have trouble right out of the gate, it tends to leave a bad taste in your mouth.”

Preparing your pellet stove for the new heating season:

You want to be sure all parts of the pellet stove, pipes, and chimney ware clean and free of debris or rodents. Any pellets that were in the stove should have been removed at the end of the last heating season. Pellets absorb water and break down, so you need to burn off or scoop out any remaining pellets at the end of the season.

Your chimney may require a cap or screen to keep rodents out. I found this out the hard way myself. Capping your chimney also keeps out rain and moisture. It’s important to remember to uncap your chimney before trying to start up your pellet stove for the season.

Next do a test run without the fire to make sure nothing froze up during the off season. “You want to be sure the basic mechanical parts are all functioning.”

Pellet stove maintenance during the heating season:

“It’s important to pay attention to your stove every day. Just by walking by notice how it sounds and if there is any black smoke where it shouldn’t be for example.”

Weekly cleaning is very important as is using quality pellets. “In the end, it’s more economical to spend the extra five bucks. Don’t shop on price alone.”

There are three types of pellets: hardwood, softwood, and a blend of the two. Hardwood burns faster and hotter, and therefore more cleanly. Softwood burns slower and less hot, but leaves more ash behind. Various blends mix the two qualities.

Clean the stove weekly. There are special cleaning agents for stoves, but they really aren’t necessary. Primarily, you are cleaning out the firebox and any glass.  An ash vacuum is a great tool to get out as much ash as possible once the stove has cooled down.  Otherwise, scoop out any ash, wipe down the inside, and use any glass cleaning product for stove windows. Steel wool is especially good for getting the burned on grime off of the glass.

Preparing your pellet stove for the end of the season:

Again, make sure your stove is well-cleaned. 99 percent of all mechanical problems can be traced to the stove not being clean enough. You can also unscrew any panels or pipes the stove has and vacuum out the inside. Remove all pellets for the hopper.

If you do encounter problems with your pellet stove, do not be afraid to call in a professional. While pellet stoves are not mechanically complicated, it helps to have someone working on your stove that can troubleshoot more easily and have quick access to replacement parts.

Don’t wait until it is “Winter” and “Cold” to maintain your heating source.  If you have a stove that is older than 10years, consider having replacement parts on hand even if it is functioning well.  During peak heating season when demand is high from suppliers and manufacturers for replacement stove parts it can be 2-6 weeks or longer depending on the part needed.  Plan ahead and be prepared!  Get ready for winter at the end of winter, don’t wait until fall or later.  WoodHeatStoves.com offers over 50,000 replacement parts or more for most gas, wood and pellet stoves.

National Fire Prevention Month!

Facebook Twitter Email

October is National Fire Prevention Month, with Fire Prevention Week being October 4-10. Below are some safety tips that homeowners should know to keep themselves and their families safe.

Smoke Alarms:  An estimated 3 out of 5 home fire deaths resulted from fires in which no smoke alarms were present or did not operate.

  • Alarms should be inside and outside each bedroom or sleeping area. They should be installed in every level of the home, including basements.
  • Batteries should be replaced twice a year.
  • Smoke alarms should be replaced EVERY 10 years.

Stove Thermometers: A stove thermometer on any wood burner is important.  Thermometers are inexpensive, easily installed and tells a user, at a glance, if the stove is being burned at the proper temperature.  Inefficient temperatures can cause damage to the unit and cause the homeowner to make unnecessary repairs.  Efficient burning can also reduce the amount of creosote buildup in the flue.

Other Safety Items:

  • Dryer safety monitors give homeowners a heads up if their vent has buildup of lint and needs to be cleaned.  Helps prevent dryer fires while also saving homeowners money.
  • Fire Escape Ladder allows for fast exit from any window.  Ladders come in a variety of lengths to accommodate different story homes.
  • Household Fire Extinguishers are generally used to put out or control small fires before they become dangerous.  For chimney fires, Chimfex Chimney Fire Extinguisher can suppress a chimney fire in an average time of 22 seconds.

Kids and Family: An estimated 5 out of 6 fire deaths happen in the home. E.D.I.T.H.(Exit Drills in The Home) should be practiced twice a year with everybody in your family household. Helpful video from National Fire Protection Association.

Dryer Vent Safety: An estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings are reported to US Fire Departments each year and cause 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss.

  • At least ONCE a year homeowners should have their vent pipe cleaned by a professional.  Failure to keep vents clean is the leading cause of clothes dryer fires.

Don’t wait until it is “Winter” and “Cold” to maintain your heating source.  If you have a stove that is older than 10years, consider having replacement parts on hand even if it is functioning well.  During peak heating season when demand is high from suppliers and manufacturers for replacement stove parts it can be 2-6 weeks or longer depending on the part needed.  Plan ahead and be prepared!  Get ready for winter at the end of winter.

Gas Stove “Basic” Winterization

Facebook Twitter Email

Basic “tips” to get your gas stove or fireplace ready:

  • Clean the outside vent before you use your gas fireplace each season.  Vents can get torn and partially blocked by leaves, spider webs and birds’ nests.  These small items as well as loose brick mortar can be sucked into the vent, block critical air passages and cause the unit to either burn improperly or not at all.
  • Clean the glass at least once a month. An abundance of build-up on the glass can be an indication that the fireplace is not burning as efficiently as it should.  An inefficient gas fireplace wastes money and may give off fatal levels of carbon monoxide.
  • Tighten the glass. If your fireplace’s glass is not held tightly in place, poisonous carbon monoxide may escape into your home.  Moisture and dust can also infect the fireplace’s combustion chamber affecting its efficiency and operation. Also make sure the glass is not scratched or chipped.  In some models, the glass can actually explode if it has such imperfections.
  • Position your logs properly.  If your ceramic logs are positioned improperly, the flame may generate unhealthy levels of carbon monoxide.
  • All unvented gas stoves or fireplaces should be equipped with Oxygen Depletion Sensors that shut off the gas when the level of oxygen in the room gets too low.  So, if your fireplace ever shuts off for no apparent reason and/or you have a slight headache or dizziness, you may have a carbon monoxide problem.  Get some fresh air immediately and have your stove or fireplace inspected.

Don’t wait until it is “Winter” and “Cold” to maintain your heating source.  If you have a stove that is older than 10years, consider having replacement parts on hand even if it is functioning well.  During peak heating season when demand is high from suppliers and manufacturers for replacement stove parts it can be 2-6 weeks or longer depending on the part needed.  Plan ahead and be prepared!  Get ready for winter at the end of winter, don’t wait until fall or later.  WoodHeatStoves.com offers over 50,000 replacement parts or more for most gas, wood and pellet stoves.
