Although coal is thought to be the most popular fuel on the market, it does not mean that every homeowner likes to burn it. Luckily, there are a variety of different options on the market for clients that prefer to burn firewood instead. In fact, it is even possible to carry out the seasoning process oneself or invest in pre-seasoned and ready to burn logs. Read on as the team here at Pearson Fuels go over three benefits of investing in and burning pre-seasoned firewood…
How much time does pre-seasoned logs save homeowners?
The seasoning process takes between 9 and 12 months to complete depending on the type of wood that homeowners intend to burn which means that it is a full-time responsibility. In fact, some property owners will season logs year-round in order to ensure that their stock never depletes. As a result, purchasing pre-seasoned logs which can be burned immediately allows homeowners to focus on the things that really matter as the seasoning process is already completed.
Are pre-seasoned logs a cost-effective investment?
It is no secret that pre-seasoned firewood tends to be more expensive than fresh firewood that has not been seasoned, however this is because the seasoning process is very time consuming and difficult to carry out correctly. As a result, clients are paying for the time that they save and quality of fire that their logs produce, making pre-seasoned logs a very cost-effective fuel investment.
Does pre-seasoned firewood produce an efficient fire output?
Seasoning firewood or drying logs in a kiln is a difficult and time-consuming process that is carried out in order to reduce the moisture content below 20% as this helps produce high-quality fires. This means that purchasing pre-seasoned logs gives the buyer peace of mind that the seasoning process has been carried out correctly and has a low moisture content that allows the firewood to burn hotter, longer and more efficiently.
