Yes!

  • Wet or unseasoned wood produces the following poor performance:
  • Fires that are very slow and difficult to start.
  • Fires that don't burn well.
  • Smokey fires with fewer flames, lack-lustre and dull dirty orange coloured flames.
  • Increased dense grey/blue smoke from the chimney.
  • Shorter burn times.
  • Low heat ouput.
  • Dirty glass with the effectiveness of stove's airwash system compromised.
  • Excessive and rapid creosole build-up in the flue system and chimney.
  • Unpleasant smokey smells inside and outside the house.
