We have a fireplace and I like to burn wood, but the house smells like wood. Is there anyway to stop this? I put a bowl of water and cinnamon in front of the fireplace last night (I don't know why I thought that would help). Also does anyone know how much the fan is suppose to blow out the warm air. Our house will be two years old and this is the first year that we really want to use the fireplace daily. I have said all along that I think that they hooked up the fan wrong because to get heat we have to open the glass doors and not use the fan. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!Answer Question
They do make a fan that fit's into your chimney that works really good on pushing the heat around. If the fireplace is making your house stink, it probably has to do with the wood. The wood has to be cured which basically means dry enough, and different woods burn differently. In Alaska, we burn Spruce and Birch, Spruce burns hotter and doesn't last as long and Birch burns good and lasts longer. If we burn Popular (spelling) it's not hot so doesn't heat your house, and smokes and smolders, lasts forever and makes your house stink! Do you have a wood guy or a fire place store that could advice you on what to burn in your area?
