)-- The price of home heating fueling is through the roof and people are now utilizing alternative sources like wood burning stoves. Licensed Electricians Macintosh Electric Corp of Westchester County New York offer safety tips for these residents to maintain a safe environment for alternative heating.
Wood Stoves: To use them safely be sure the stove or fireplace is installed correctly, woodstoves should have a clearance of 36 inches from combustible surfaces with proper floor support and protection. Woodstoves should be of good quality, solid construction and design, and should be UL listed. Absolutely have a chimney inspected yearly and cleaned if necessary especially when it has not been utilized for a long duration of time. Never utilize any flammable liquids to start or accelerate a fire. Always keep a glass or metal screen in front of the fireplace to keep harmful and flammable materials in and out.
