Whether you’ve cut your own firewood or purchased it, there are a few simple ways to make sure it is properly seasoned and ready for the fireplace:
👉The wood should be yellow or brown, rather than a creamy white, and slightly cracked. The bark should be loose.
👉Properly seasoned firewood will feel lighter. If you strike two pieces of wood together, you should hear a drum-like sound. Wood that is too wet to burn will make a dull thud.
👉Once the wood is lit in your fireplace, you should hear a pleasant crackling sound. Wet firewood will let off a hiss, a finite sign that it is not seasoned enough to burn.
⚠️ Wet firewood produces an excess of smoke that can add to the air pollution in your home, especially if you have an open-hearth fireplace. This excess smoke also causes a faster build-up of highly flammable creosote in your chimney.
👌 So while it may take a little extra time and effort, making sure your firewood is properly seasoned will help you keep your fireplace safe and burning efficiently!
