Why choose Firewood? Why choose a sustainable fuel?
“Firewood is the natural sustainable choice of fuel for domestic fires – in use since the first fire many millennia ago. When we warm our homes with wood, we participate in a natural cycle and an ongoing continuum of activity that we share with ancient ancestors. I am amazed at the number of country people who don’t have fires, whether open log fires or woodburning stoves, because they are “too dirty” or “too much work”.
In fact the procedure of building and lighting the fire is one of my favourite jobs of the day, and I love handling and preparing the firewood. I am not one to pursue a life where all comfort comes from the flick of a switch.
The Benefits Of Burning Kiln Dried Logs
- Burning kiln dried logs reduces the environmental impact, as they burn more efficiently then unseasoned wood.
- Burning wet wood increases emissions and has a greater impact on air quality by creating more smoke. Applicances are generally dirtier when burning wet wood and you need more wood for the same warmth.
- Kiln dried logs give more heat output for each log then unseasoned wood.
