Once a wood stove is refurbished, it can last a long time when users take steps to maintain its condition. Wood stoves are designed to burn natural wood, and not other fuel sources such as artificial logs or coal. Users should avoid burning fuels that contain lead, plastic, zinc or sulfur, which pose a risk to the stove's combustor. The ideal fuel for this type of stove is seasoned wood.
Small, hot fires provide a good source of heat. Excess ashes should always be removed to keep the stove's air-intake vents clear. Installing a stack thermometer in the stove allows for easy monitoring of smoke pollution, which happens when the heat is over 400 degrees Fahrenheit. A clean burning stove produces minimal smoke.
