Firewood is Back
At HouseFuel, we pride ourselves on offering our customers the highest quality fuels whether it be household or smokeless coal and now we are bringing back firewood. After testing a wide selection of firewood available, we found that the kiln dried hardwood logs that is made of Birch offered a unique aroma and an authentic looking flame.
The kiln dried hardwood logs is currently manufactured by CPL Industries and strictly meet the quality control guidelines that monitor moisture content, size, species and country of origin. This proves that this is the best firewood for our customers. This is a certified “Ready to Burn” firewood and due to its low moisture content of less than 20%, it burns at a high temperature with a long and natural looking flame.
What can I use Kiln Dried Hardwood Logs for?
This extremely dry firewood with low smoke emissions makes it the perfect choice for your appliance whether that be a wood burning stove, multi-fuel stoves, pizza oven, chimeneas or traditional open fires.
Why you should choose Kiln Dried Hardwood over other wood.
We have heard a lot of stories from our customers, who have tried plenty of times to save a bit of money by collecting there firewood from the local woods or buying it for a very cheap price from the back of a lorry. However you will soon understand that this isn't the best option, the truth about burning wet firewood is that it will end up costing you more in the long term. Below we have stated a few points on why our kiln dried hardwood logs are much more beneficial for you:
- Greater heat output than wet logs meaning during those cold nights you will get warm quickly if need be.
- Greatly reduced emissions as our firewood has been tested and has an improved air quality in comparison to wet wood.
- Ready to Burn - Local woods will take years to dry up when being stored
When burning wet wood (estimated to have a moisture content of 45% - 80%), because it is such a low quality firewood, it gives off very little heat, burn very slowly and may even go out as it is so wet. All the energy used from the flame is being used to remove all the water in the wood which then creates a steamy, dismal fire with a very low heat output.
To quickly answer your question, yes! We highly recommend burning coal and logs together as it can produce a gorgeous fire mixing the aroma and long flames from the log fire with the high heat output and longevity of solid fuel. Mixing fuels is also beneficial for your appliance as the higher temperatures produced by the coal help to drive off any moisture in the logs, reducing the build up of tar.
We also recommend you follow the manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines for you appliance with regards to choosing a fuel, and mixing fuels.
