Ready to burn

In another blog, we detailed the painstaking process of seasoning your own wood. Although doable, many of us would prefer to use a fuel that is ready to go at all times of the year. Due to the fact that our kiln dried logs have a moisture content of below 20%, they can be burned immediately and without hassle.

Easy to light

Burning ‘green’ firewood with a moisture content of 60% or above can be an arduous task. The water in the wood gathered from the elements can significantly hinder the lighting process. Kiln dried firewood, on the other hand, lights effortlessly in a short space of time - perfect for when you want to heat your home quickly!

Cleaner flame

Traditional firewood is often affected by mould and other harmful pathogens that cause the excretion harmful fumes when the wood is burned. The high temperatures during the process of kiln drying, however, kill these harmful pathogens and result in a much cleaner flame. What’s more, kiln dried wood produces minimal smoke when lit, reducing the likelihood of issues arising from excess smoke in the flute or chimney of your stove or open fire.

Sustained fire life

Traditional firewood requires constant tending to achieve an extended burn time. In contrast, kiln dried logs contribute to a sustained fire life and as such, do not require much assistance. Many of our customers love the fact that they can place a kiln dried log in their fireplace or multi-fuel stove before they go to bed, safe in the knowledge that there will still be a toasty, warm glow for the chilly morning ahead.

High heat output

Ultimately, the goal for any fuel for open fires and multi-fuel stoves is to produce the highest heat output possible. As a result of the minimal moisture content, kiln dried logs produce significantly higher temperatures than traditional firewood. If you want the homeliness that a roaring, wood burning fire brings coupled with a warm and inviting flame, kiln dried logs are the perfect choice for you.
