Why are kiln dried logs the best to use?
Kiln-dried logs contain less moisture than green or seasoned logs. This makes them the best fuel to burn in your wood burning or multi-fuel stove. The low moisture level means that they produce more heat and burn for longer which in turn makes them more economical than other types of firewood. Kiln-dried logs will heat your room more quickly, they will burn with a much brighter flame and produce less smoke than seasoned or green logs helping to minimise the build-up of harmful deposits on your chimney or lining system.
How do I use kiln dried logs?
Use at least two fire-lighters with between 4-8 pieces of kindling depending on the size of your stove, make sure to generate enough heat to warm your flue. Once the kindling is burning we recommend to add a couple of extra, smaller kiln-dried logs – these will burn and create a layer of embers.
How often should I change the logs?
Reloading time depends on a number of things such as the size of your fireplace and stove, on average we suggest reloading with logs every 45 minutes to an hour to keep your stove burning beautifully.
