    Firewood produces the most heat into the home and is more enjoyable to use when it is dry and seasoned. The difference between “dry” and “seasoned” is that you can have seasoned wood, meaning dead or down for a year or more, that is saturated with water from rain or other sources. A tree th

   Pellet stoves work great - meaning they heat well, convenient (are self lighting), and reliable. All you need to do is to pour a bag of pellets in periodically, set the thermostat, and Presto! - a comfortable home. Less mess, less dust, no wood hauling or kindling... Joy! I'm considering one for my home right n

     There are people who love the smell of wood burning and who think smelling it is a good part of the ambiance of a crackling fire. However...   You should never smell smoke in the home. If you do the reasons are:1. The venting system is plugged, or,2. The home i

   We put a chimney in for a contractor who is remodeling a customer's fireplace by taking out an old unit and putting in a new one. This is a great project and they will enjoy the heat output and clean glass of the new unit far more than the old one. However, the reason for the upgrade is that the old f

  This morning we went to a home we had been to a couple years ago. They wanted to convert a decorative wood burning fireplace into a wood heater by replacing it or by putting an insert in it. We had given a bid to tear the existing fireplace out and replace it with an EPA certified built in unit. In our opinion, this

Took off early today for a 3.5 hour ride up in the hills. Other than a few short mountain bike rides this winter I haven't been riding.Highlights: Just as the sun peeked out over the eastern ridge I saw a herd of 30 deer turned golden in the early light. Oh! how I wish I could ride as lightly as they

Clothes rubbing against each other in the dryer form static electricity. Many people use dryer sheets to remove it. The dryer sheets cause the lint trap to clog, extending drying times and wearing out your dryer. Liquid fabric softeners are a better choice however some people have allergic reactions to the fumes or t

Chimney sweeps have a long and infamous history. Children, unable to be fed through the winter in the European mountains, often were sold to dealers who made them chimney sweeps in the big cities. They were ill fed to keep them small so as to fit inside the chimneys. These were the “climbin

The New year in many countries is associated with chimney sweeps and good luck. This photo is from a book for the enlightenment of Soviet children in 1926. This illustrated book confirms the connection of sweeps and luck in the Russian new year tradition as well as the European ones. Of course, the Russian new y

One of the things I've always loved about the Holidays is gathering for the big feasts. I love the smells, the kitchen bustle, the traditions... eating - It's all good. Exhaustion, headaches, and body aches sometimes accompany these days. We often write these off as flu symptoms or simply the result of tiredness fr

In response to a recent Redding.com post by Anna Moseley about the idea of using your kitchen cook oven to clean your grill:Don't forget - gas fueled cook ovens vent directly into the home. CO is a dangerous byproduct that enters into the home, and your body, when the stove is in use. Most manufacturers directions inc

It’s 4:30 a.m. and I’m riding my bicycle by myself. It’s dark. Not counting the few street and business lights. It’s hushed. The one main road I have to be on for about 5 miles has few cars to worry about at this time. Two or three cars going my direction are usual. Once I turn east on

Air ducts should be cleaned periodically sometimes.In theory, a duct with a great air filter and no leaks in the ducting is going to get very little in the way of contaminants. However the real world bucks the theory. When do your ducts need cleaning? 1. When you look in them and see a

I went to check out a plugged dryer vent. There was a squirrel in it. It had had babies.This is not my favorite kind of job. I've seen lizards, snakes, rodents in the vents... ugghh!It's easy to prevent this with a screen guard over the vent termination. Or, you can make sure the flap works correctly

I just love a good ad. Besides potentially causing fires a clogged dryer vent may back carbon monoxide into your breathing space - with gas dryers. When we clean a dryer we are installing the LintAlert which tells you when the system is getting clogged. You don't have to wait until it takes two or three cycles to dry and a

On Monday the Wall Street Journal reported that the Obama administration may approve an EPA finding that classifies greenhouse gases as detrimental to human health.This would give regulators more leverage over greenhouse gas emitters - like people who breathe out I suppose.
