Benefits of Kiln Dried Firewood

Firewood Supplies & Stoves

Households that rely on solid fuels to heat their homes will be aware of the costs involved in stocking up on wood logs. Getting an efficient stove and lined chimney is just the start – you’ll soon realise, via trial and error, that different fuels yield different results in terms of heat output.

Our company was born out of frustration from not being able to source dry firewood. As we all know it’s very hard to send a log back and complain once it’s on a fire hissing! For that reason we offer specific guarantees as to the species of wood and availability within a specific timeframe.

Our firewood has been carefully prepared, kiln dried, sized and packaged to give you, the customer the best possible chance of getting the greatest return of heat for your money.

We supply Kiln Dried logs which have a moisture content of 20% or less compared to naturally seasoned wood which has a moisture content of 25-30%. This gives kiln-dried wood a huge advantage over usual firewood.

As a local provider of wood fuel, Firewood Supplies & Stoves is making it easy for customers to find wood fuels that have been certified as Ready to Burn and that meet new legal requirements that come into force from 1 May 2021 in England.

Under the new Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020 that will apply in England from 1 May 2021, wood fuel sold in volumes under 2m3 will need to be certified as Ready to Burn. The new regulations aim to prevent harmful pollution from domestic burning of all solid fuels by ensuring wood sold in volumes of under 2m3 is certified as having a moisture content of 20% or less. Customers buying loose wood in quantities of 2m3 or more must be given advice on how to store and season the fuel, this will give them confidence that the wood they are burning is suitably dry before use.

The DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) Ready to Burn certification scheme is run by Woodsure. Woodsure is a non-profit organisation striving to raise the quality of wood fuel in the industry. For the past four years, Woodsure has been leading the way in championing the use of less polluting dry wood which is verified by its independent inspectors as having a moisture content of 20% less, meaning it burns with less smoke than wetter wood.
