The Benefits of Dried Hardwood Logs – Shaw Firewood

As we move from Summer into Autumn, we can begin to look forward to much longer and much colder evenings. And when that cold weather does set in, there is nothing better than getting all warm and cosy in front of a roaring fire.

As we try to reduce our carbon footprint, many are turning away from the traditional coal and turf to light our fires. But that does not mean that we have to give up our glorious fires so easily. There are many benefits to replacing coal with kiln dried hardwood logs.

Benefits of Kiln Dried Logs

Kiln dried wood is dried at a very hot temperature and as it is seasoned quicker with the moisture content being drastically reduced, there is virtually no additional smoke produced from excess water content. Kiln dried wood has a much longer burn time when compared to traditionally seasoned wood . Kiln dried wood is more costly, but with the higher advantage of a longer burn time, less logs will be used, so it is worth the investment.
