The majority of suppliers offer only season dried softwood (which in a lot of cases isn’t dried at all) with moisture content from 30% to 50% and delivered loose in trailer loads or in fertiliser bags. Delivery in trailer loads leaves You with a pile of wood in the middle of Your driveway and has to be taken indoors by You which is labour and time consuming. Fertiliser bags are not suited for firewood either. They have open top and can only be kept upright not to mention trace of fertiliser in the bag itself. Wood that has more than 20% moisture uses a lot of heat just to get rid of the moisture inside the wood, and some very damp wood hardly gives any heat output at all!.
Softwood is not suited for burning in a stove or open fire at all because:
- Very poor heat output
- Puts out sparks.
- Leaves a lot of ashes.
- TDramatically increases the risk of Creosote to build up in the chimney system.
“Creosote is black or brown in appearance and is usually crusty and flaky. It is tar-like, drippy, sticky, shiny and hardened. Often, all forms will occur in one chimney system. Creosote is highly combustible. If it builds up in sufficient quantities and catches fire inside the chimney flue the result will be a chimney fire. If creosote builds up in sufficient quantities it will sustain a long, hot destructive chimney fire”.
Raymond’s Eco Fuels offer kiln dried hardwood with moisture content less than 20% which is recommeded by stove manufacturers.
