Tips for Spring Cleaning your pellet stove

Facebook Twitter Email

There are a few things you should think about doing prior to the next burn season.

Late spring is an ideal time to schedule your annual deep cleaning. The company that provides you with this service will most likely send you a reminder with some sort of “Spring Discount”. Try and set up your appointment so the work is performed when you are done using the stove for the season, that way the stove should be in perfect condition at the beginning of the next burn season. If you wait until August or September to call and schedule your cleaning you may have to wait 6 weeks to have the work actually done.

The typical deep cleaning takes 2 1/2 to 3 hours, includes cleaning the glass and disassembling the air-wash at the beginning and touching up the stove paint upon completion. All areas where fly-ash can accumulate must be accessed, visually inspected, and cleaned- from the burnpot to the venting terminus. The convection system likewise must be cleaned from the fan forward.

If this is the first time you are having your stove professionally cleaned you should do a bit of research. Don’t assume that the retail store that sold you the stove has a qualified and experienced employee to service your stove. Do you really want to have some employee making close to minimum wage with perhaps one or two seasons experience (if that) working on your stove? Also, don’t assume your local chimney sweep has the necessary experience either. If you have friends or family members who own pelletstoves ask them who they use and recommend. Make a few calls and ask what the company actually does to the stove, are they an owner operated business, how long have they worked on pelletstoves, and do they work exclusively on pelletstoves? Of course they should be licensed, bonded and insured. You should be able to also check them out online through their licensing board.

Other than the actual cleaning itself you want to make sure that if your service person forgets to unplug your stove after the annual cleaning you unplug it yourself.

Also, late spring and early summer is the best time to look for you next seasons fuel supply. You usually can save a few buck this time of year. Just remember to store you pellets in a dry covered location and keep them out of direct sunlight as the bags can “sweat”.

Here is a closer look at a pellet stove, notice the uneven coloration of the glass.


With the door now open you can see how the glass is clean in specific areas- thats where the gasket has been allowing air to leak in. (gasket is to small for this stove, the owner installed it himself.)


Here’s a look at the inside of the stove.


On each side of this stove are access holes, the cover was loosened, rotated and tightened to get into this ash trap. The vacuum pressure switch and hose are visible and in front of the exhaust fan motor and housing.


The decorative rear firewall plate has been removed for cleaning and paint. The stove door has also been removed for cleaning and gasket replacement.


The left side wall has been removed in this picture. Both the left and right walls need to be removed to do the cleaning properly as ash collected in this area cannot be adequately removed through the access holes alone.


Light now shines through the access holes.


Exhaust fan removed from housing.


Exhaust fan housing.


That’s a lot of ash and creosote built up behind the exhaust fan blades that were removed from the fan for cleaning.


The exhaust fan is ready to be put together.


OK lets fast forward a bit. The convection fan was blown out along with the convection tubes. The motor was oiled. The pellet vent was swept out and inspected. The back firewall was painted charcoal and the decorative firewall plate was painted brown. The cleaned burn pot was also painted charcoal. the stove body was touched-up, and here’s what the stove looked like when it was done.




5 Tips to Prevent a Chimney Fire

Facebook Twitter Email

If you own a woodstove and use it regularly, preventing a chimney fire is something you need to know

What Causes a Chimney Fire?

When you burn in a wood stove, a byproduct called creosote builds up on the inside of the chimney. If you’re not familiar with what creosote is, here is a great explanation: “Creosote is a gummy, foul smelling, corrosive and extremely combustible substance that, if no precautions are taken, will coat the insides of everything it passes through. It is formed when volatile gases given off in the burning process combine and condense on their way out of the chimney…..It can form a hard layer coating the insides of pipes and chimney liners. It can form into a fluffy substance that plugs pipes and breaks off and falls down, filling low spots in piping. It is the cause of most chimney fires and the main reason chimneys and pipes have to be cleaned and inspected periodically.”

How to Prevent a Chimney Fire:

1. Clean your chimney   You can always tell when our stove pipe is getting clogged up and needs to be cleaned. When your stove is consistently not drafting well and smoke comes out the door rather than drafting up the stove pipe you know it is time to clean it out. You can buy one of these brushes and one of these  extension rods. Being pretty comfortable up on the roof is a factor in utilizing this investment. This isn’t a safe option for everyone. You can also hire someone to clean your chimney.

2. Use dry wood. If your wood is wet or not fully cured, it will not burn as hot as dry wood. It will also smoke more. Burning wet wood leads to creosote building up faster in your chimney.

3. Burn the hardest firewood you can find. Hardwood trees are not native to our area. When you go out to cut firewood, we search for downed tree’s, large branches, of native wood in your area. Compared to those of you who burn hardwoods, creosote will build up faster in your chimney burning “pines”. Steer clear of really sappy pines like Ponderosa Pine or wood that just doesn’t burn hot.

4. Burn your wood stove in the “burn zone” daily. If you burn your wood stove hot enough on a regular basis, it will help prevent the build up of creosote. Use this  handy gadget  that attaches to our stove pipe to gauge the temperature. It shows not only when you are in the “burn zone” but when the stove is getting too hot and into the “over fire” zone and we need to close the flue a bit.

5. Use a creosote remover powderThis is a powdery substance you put in your wood stove and then burn a hot fire. This is supposed to turn the creosote into a powder. This is not a replacement for cleaning your chimney but can help reduce the creosote. The only time we’ve used this was when it was too snowy to get on the roof to clean the chimney and we needed to eliminate some of the creosote build up.

If you use a wood stove on a regular basis, implementing these tips can go a long way in helping you to prevent a chimney fire. Always make a point of getting up on the roof, inspecting the chimney and cleaning it out at least once a year. Our hope in sharing these tips is that it will help you become more aware of what causes a chimney fire and how to prevent it. Wood stoves offer  wonderful warmth and can help save money heating your house, but they can be dangerous if you don’t know proper maintenance. So now you can stay cozy, warm and safe at home!

10 Wood Stove Tips!

10 Wood Stove Tips

  1. Use Seasoned Wood- If you want to get the most efficiency out of your wood stove, using well-seasoned wood is a must. Nothing is more frustrating than staring at a low smoky fire that isn’t putting out nearly enough heat. The smudged glass and smoky smell in the house is a tell-tale sign that your wood is sub-par.
  2. Learn how to use your stove properly- There is more to heating with a wood stove than just buying a stove and lighting a fire. Figuring out the proper amount of air and wood will help you wring the most out of your stove.
  3. Get a Thermometer for the stove- A thermometer will help you know where your fire is at. It isn’t good to have too hot of a fire or too low of a fire. Too hot and you run the risk of starting a chimney fire, too low and you’ll build up potentially dangerous creosote.
  4. A Shop Vac is your friend- Shoveling out cold ash can be a dirty job. Get a HEPA Filter for your shop vac and keep that stove nice and clean.
  5. Learn to do your own Spring Cleaning- Don’t be afraid to clean your own stove out. It isn’t that hard, a properly sized chimney brush will clean out your chimney in a just a few strokes and you’ll save yourself some dough. Pay special attention to the mesh on the chimney cap, this is what got clogged on me, and ended up filling the house with smoke.
  6. Find a reputable wood supplier- I’m a big fan of harvesting my own wood, but there are sometimes you might need to buy. Wood suppliers are notorious for delivering green wood or cord shorting. Find someone you can trust for those times you might be running low.
  7. Don’t be afraid to ask- It might be embarrassing the first time, but there is nothing wrong with asking a tree guy just what they are doing with the wood. Some tree services will actually drop off wood at your house for free since they will have to pay to dump it.
  8. A quality chainsaw is a sound investment- If you are going to commit to heating with a wood stove, a good saw will be worth its cost. Quality saws cut faster and with less strain on the user. They will last for many years if properly taken care of.
  9. Welding Gloves are awesome- Welding Glovesare a nice cheap item to have around. They let you reach into the stove without fear of getting burnt. In a pinch you can handle a burning log, but not for long!
  10. Safety isn’t for wusses- There is no shame in having a Smoke Detector and a Carbon Monoxide detector. When you have a wood stove you are accepting that you will have 400 pounds of blazing hot steel sitting in your living room. Exercise some caution and respect, for it and your family.

Do you have a stove that was

If you have a stove that is pre EPA “Environmental Protection Agency”
or older than 1990, that is twenty four PLUS years old, than you should
really consider upgrading.  A new or used
EPA rated gas, wood or pellet stove is more efficient home heating and
