  • Acucraft recommends using dry, seasoned hardwood. Soft woods can be used if they are properly dried and seasoned. On average, it takes roughly two years for wood to fully dry to the point of being seasoned and ready to burn.
  • Only use small, natural kindling to start a fire or a wax and sawdust fire starter.
  • Do not burn kiln dried lumber or any kind of building materials or engineered plywood; it is so dry that it can cause your fireplace to overheat.
  • Never burner artificial woods or anything with glues or finishing products.
  • Do not use newspaper or routinely burn paper of any kind, it is a very dirty burn and will lead to creosote build-up in your chimney system.
