Whistler Firewood and Chimney Sweeping
With Winter creeping up, your fireplace looks more enticing. For all of you with gas or electric fireplaces it's easy enough to flip a switch. But for those of you that have a wood fireplace, you're going to need firewood. Some of you may have firewood stocked up from the Summer (or previous years), but for those of you that are running low and don't feel like chopping down a tree in the cold for firewood, we've done the research for you.
If you're about to use your wood fireplace, or the Winter season is coming to an end, you're going to need to clean your chimney. Assuming you are not a professional chimney sweeper, you're going to need professionals. Once again, we've done the research for you.

Most firewood dealers servicing the Sea to Sky Region and Whistler in particular sell by a measurment known as a Cord of Firewood. A cord of fire wood is 120 CU/Feet or 4'X4'X8.
There are also different types of wood to fuel your fire with.
Soft Woods for Fires
Fir and Hemlock are softer woods and perfect for starting a fire. They burn quick but are smokier.
Hard Woods for Fires
Maple and Alder are hard woods for maintaing a already lit fire. They provide more heat than softer wood and burn longer with less smoke.
