Nothing says “cozy and warm” during the winter like a roaring fire! Before you start using your fireplace this winter, make sure you know how to get the most out of it.
1) Make sure wood is stored properly; it should be kept dry and covered with a tarp if kept outside
2) Use local wood; using local wood will help you to reduce your carbon footprint and adhere to any laws in your area that can help prevent the spread of pests
3) Learn how to start a long-burning fire; start with a small kindling and make sure it gets plenty of air
4) Get the warm air circulating with low-speed ceiling fans; they’ll keep the warm air from staying near the ceiling and spread throughout the house
