I have a fireplace in my family room with a sliding glass doors and my family room has no windows.
When I open the door inside the fireplace to allow all the smokes out of the chimney. When I put woods and the flames itself began to be big and a lot of smoke are having trouble go thru the chimney for a short period or the smoke are too slow to get into the chimney. The smoke got into all over the house and cause my fire alarm went off.
Is that normal or should I shut the glass door closed until the smoke clear up ? Is the wood cause problem? or what?
Wrong kind of firewood? What kind of firewood that should NOT be in fireplace?
