Reducing Creosote Buildup In Your Chimney
Restricted air supply, unseasoned wood and cooler than normal chimney temperatures can accelerate creosote buildup inside your chimney. To counteract creosote production, it is advisable to burn well-seasoned, dry wood that burns hotly and produces byproducts that exit the chimney quickly. Opening the damper fully and leaving fireplace doors open whenever possible increases air flow and dramatically decreases creosote buildup. The occasional burning of a chimney- cleaning log dislodges creosote and sends it harmlessly up and out of the chimney stack.
