It seems like it went from Winter to Summer in the blink of an eye. It can do the same thing in reverse. That’s why Summer is the best time to prepare for next Winter. If you burn wood, you have plenty to do and we can help.
The first thing you should do is get your wood together, because it takes at least a season to dry, maybe less out here in our hot and dry California summers.. Wet wood burns about as well as a damp rag so make sure it has plenty of time to cure.
If you’re still burning your favorite old pre-EPA Earth Stove, we have Earth Stove replacement parts for many of the older models, and now is the time to fix it up and make sure it’s in good working order. But why not make this the year you upgrade to an efficient EPA model that will burn half the wood for the same amount of heat as your old model? After all, it takes time, effort and money to buy or cut the wood and stack it so why not make the most of it? We have both new and used wood stoves for sale.
We also have Wood Stove Chimney for making any necessary repairs, as well as some helpful videos to show how it goes together, and Chimney Brushes and Rods to keep it clean and ready for the first cold snap in the Fall. Just like Summer snuck up on us here in California, it WAS snowing just about 2 weeks ago, Winter can do the same thing and that’s not the time you want to be replacing that chimney cap or sweeping last Winter’s creosote out of your chimney.
Take care of your stove now and it will take care of you next Winter. Then you can relax and go swimming, ride your bike in the sunshine, or relax under a shady tree with a cold beer knowing you’re ready for whatever Mother Nature has in store.
