How do I minimize creosote buildup?
I've noticed a lot of creosote buildup in the chimney of my new wood furnace. How do I keep this buildup under control? I've already had to let the fire die out so that I could take the pipe off of the back of the furnace and clean it out.
I already burn one of the creosote cleaning sticks in the furnace every week but it doesn't seem to do much good. When I cleaned the flue pipe and chimney out I removed about one 5 gallon bucket of creosote out of them.
I'm burnig hardwood (oak, maple, locust and cherry) that has aged at least 9 months after splitting. Help!
