Use of Starter Sticks
« on: October 29, 2019, 08:34:07 AM »

I have been holding off starting up my G2 for the first time. The weather here in northern Ontario has been swinging to above normal temps, reaching 60 degrees in the daytime and down to 38 at night. They are calling for that to end tomorrow with temps dropping below freezing at night and daytime highs around 35 F. So I plan on startup tomorrow...

My question is about the fire starter sticks. I have a package left over from the last house. I used them to start the wood/electric combination furnace I had and used them for years with no problem. I actually found they were better for the furnace than using paper. When I used them in the old wood furnace I used to break off a piece about the size of a quarter and sit it on top of a piece of kindling. Worked like a charm...

Is it advisable, or okay, to use the fire sticks in the same way on the G2 or will it cause issues ?

Great thanks. I was hoping so because they do work well, much easier than paper.
