Wood Stoves and Inserts

What kind of wood should I burn in my stove or insert?

All IronStrike wood-burning stoves and wood-burning inserts are designed to burn seasoned cordwood with a moisture content of 15-25%.  The species of wood, hardness of the wood, and moisture content will all play a role in the amount of heat produced and the length of burn time.  Generally, soft woods, such as pine will ignite more quickly but they will burn up faster.  Hard woods, such as oak, are more difficult to light, but result in longer burn times.  When choosing wood to burn it is important to ensure the wood is free of salts or other caustic impurities, as this will cause damage to the appliance.

Pellet Stoves and Inserts

What kind of pellets can I burn?

IronStrike pellet-burning stoves and inserts are designed to burn premium wood pellets.  The quality of the pellets used will have a direct impact on the performance of the pellet appliance and the frequency of required maintenance.
