Choosing the perfect fuel to burn in a fireplace or stove should be an easy decision, however, beginners tend to learn rather quickly that the market is filled with an abundance of choice. As a result, it can be difficult to accurately weigh up the pros and cons, particularly when it comes to firewood. Here at Pearson Fuels, we have a wealth of experience when it comes to helping clients choose the perfect fuel for their needs and in this blog, we have decided to go over a few reasons why you should invest in kiln dried logs…
Kiln dried logs are named as such because they are firewood logs that are dried in a piece of machinery known as a ‘kiln’. In fact, these furnaces are heated to temperatures as high as a 115°C in order to remove as much moisture from the firewood as possible and thus, improve its output when it is burned. Ultimately, this helps homeowners save time as they do not need to spend 6-12 months seasoning their firewood prior to burning it because the kiln drying process does it for them.
Since kiln dried logs are incredibly well-seasoned, they tend to have a moisture content of 20% or lower and this means that they burn incredibly efficiently. In fact, kiln dried logs are known to burn at much higher temperatures because they are so dry and this means that homeowners will receive a much more effective heat output. In addition to this, kiln dried logs also have an exceptional burn time compared to traditional firewood alternatives which is, again, attributed to their low moisture content.
Due to their impressive efficiency, kiln dried logs are an incredibly cost-effective investment for homeowners who are looking to save time whilst reaping the benefits of an efficient woodburning fire. After all, their high-heat output and long burn time means that property owners won’t have to use as many logs as they would have to with regular firewood and thus, can save money in the long run.
