Using A Wood Stove
We get it. A wood stove makes for a cozy space in your home, and the crackling of the fire is relaxing. Wood stoves can leak dangerous carbon monoxide into your home without proper ventilation. A wood stove makes a nice centerpiece for your living room, but it’s hazardous. In order to keep you and your family safe, be sure to have your chimney cleaned every year before using it for the first time. Also, keep carbon monoxide detectors with fresh batteries in your home to know if carbon monoxide is leaking from your fireplace. Wood stoves can also cause dangerous fires in your home. Never use a wood-burning stove without supervising the fire inside. It can be dangerous for you and your family.
