With the recent increase in consumers switching to log burners brings with it an increase in demand for quality firewood logs. With so much money being spent on installations, customers are understandably very particular about the quality of logs they are prepared to use. #
Kiln Dried: The less moisture the firewood contains, the more effective it is as an efficient source of fuel. Any water in the log will prevent higher temperatures and is likely to provide only weak flames. In addition, burning logs with higher moisture content can cause a build-up of soot and tar to be deposited inside wood burners and chimney linings.
Hardwood: Choosing Hardwood logs provides you with a much denser fuel over softwood. This will give you a longer lasting burn at high temperatures and more radiation of heat from the embers for far longer than softwood. So although more expensive than softwood to buy, hardwood actually provides better value for money.
