    Having recently purchased a woodstove, I thought I made a mistake to the tune of a few thousand dollars: My wood wouldn’t burn right, glass got all covered in creasote, etc.

    In desperation, I bought this video. What a difference it has made! It has sections regarding how to choose a woodstove -which weren’t helpful, since I already bought one, but the stove the DVD Authors have is -coincidentally- nearly identical to my own.

    I learned how to build a fire in my EPA-approved woodstove, which is a bit different from the olders stoves. I learned how to cut, stack and cure wood, as well as what wood is best, what is OK, and what you shouldn’t bother with. I learned how to sharpen my chainsaw. I learned more than I feel like typing about!

    Essentially, this DVD took me from a novice to an experienced woodburner (or pretty close) in a few hours. I recommend it highly.

    My husband and I are novice wood stove users, and before getting our stove installed, we picked up this DVD set. I’m a visual learner, and when it comes to doing something like using a woodstove, it’s nice to have visual instruction rather than reading a book or manual.

    We didn’t head the first advice of the video, which was to buy a newer, more efficient model of wood stove, but we simply couldn’t afford it (we did snag a used Vermont Castings Intrepid circa 1983 – still a good stove, and in great condition for its age). Because our stove is older and we weren’t shopping around for a stove, we didn’t use the “How to buy a stove” section, but it was helpful to watch and understand for future reference.

    With our older stove, the section that was incredibly helpful was the step-by-step instruction on how to replace the gaskets (the inner lining of the doors). Thanks to Ted and Deb for for demonstrating how crucial this replacement is and how it can lengthen the life of your stove even more.

    I particularly enjoyed the chapters on building a Break-In fire and Sustaining a fire – I only wish there was MORE in this chapter (which is the only reason I gave this DVD set a 4 star rating instead of 5). The narrators/instructors are also very diligent about wood stove safety, and I felt this was well covered. I had to watch several chapters of the DVD set a few times over in order to absorb all of the information.

    As a novice, the only part that I fast-forwarded through was the chainsaw use and maintenance. Though very thorough, and one day I will certainly watch and utilize the instruction, it wasn’t necessary for me to get my woodstove going. We bought a seasoned cord locally this year, and I anticipate it will still be many years before we cut our own firewood. Still, it’s good information to have and makes the whole experience very complete.

    Bottom line: I would highly recommend this video to any woodstove user, especially beginners. It’s a little cheesy at times (sorry Ted and Deb!), but their valuable information, thorough video, and easy-to-follow instruction supersedes any hokey-ness.

    Just had a fireplace insert put in and needed to educate myself on the proper use of how to start and keep a fire going, dvd did a good job of explaining what I needed to know.

    I’ve owned my Heritage woodstove for 4 years. I had been using the stove for night time and weekend heating. Then my girlfriend retired so we decided to burn wood 24/7.
    This past winter was a cold/wet one in N.Y. We went through our typical 3 cords by the end of January so we ordered 2 cords to get us through the rest of the season. Then, we thought our stove had a problem, it wouldn’t put out heat and we were going through A LOT of wood, double the expected amount.
    We brought in Stove repair guy, he said the stove is fine, but you may want to install a chimney flue to help with draft “due to the cold winter”. We did. But it didn’t help at all. The weeks rolled on and the wood was going up in smoke quickly.
    I then ran across your DVD’s.
    Neither us nor any of our friends knew about wood moisture meters. We ran out and bought one. Turns out the wood we had bought was soaking wet on the inside of the wood. We starting drying the wood a safe distance from the stove and viola, that did the trick. We also learned about proper stacking techniques, which we now use.
    Even though we had owned the stove for a few years, we learned a lot from your video.
    We want to thank you for it !!!! You have brought back the joy of heating our home with wood, without the worry and frustration we had been experiencing during those cold “smoldering” weeks.

    Wonderful DVD. Just what I needed to start warming my first home this Christmas that just so happened to come with a wood stove. Thanks!
