How to Minimize Fireplace Smoke

Fireplace smoke can be harmful, but there are ways to minimize the amount of smoke produced, as well as the likelihood of it entering your living space. Here are some tips to help you enjoy your fireplace without compromising your health.

  • Choose the right wood. Burn only dry and well-seasoned hardwoods in your fireplace. Wet or green wood produces more smoke and releases more pollutants into the air, encouraging creosote buildup and clogs.
  • Build your fire the right way. Hot, quicker-burning fires will produce less smoke and burn more cleanly. Take care to stack logs with at least ¾-inches of space between them to allow proper air flow and hotter burns. Lastly, be sure not to overfill your fireplace.
  • Upgrade to a fireplace insert. A fireplace insert can help to reduce the amount of smoke that escapes into your home. It can also improve the efficiency of your fireplace, reducing the amount of wood you need to burn.
  • Open the damper. Make sure the damper is fully open to allow for proper ventilation. This will help to reduce the amount of smoke that enters your home, ensuring it moves up and out like it’s supposed to.
  • Schedule chimney cleanings. Regular chimney cleanings help reduce the risk of buildup, and it will keep smoke and pollutants from entering your home.
