Choosing the best firewood this winter

Winter is well and truly setting in and the temperatures dropping, it’s the perfect time to create your very own winter wonderland by firing up the heat in your home with fire-pits and fireplaces! With the weather getting significantly cooler at night of late, it’s no surprise that everyone is on the hunt for quality firewood.

The key to a winter-worthy fire is top quality firewood! But what constitutes the best?

Here’s what you need to know about choosing the best wood

Cheap wood is often sub-par, made from trees that have not matured properly, and is likely to have been treated with chemicals; this will not only give you a sub-par burn but will also emit toxic chemicals into the air as it burns.

Why mature wood is best

Young wood is considered ‘green’ and has significantly higher moisture content. This means it will emit up to 70% less heat than mature wood! Not only that, but this greenwood can also harm your chimney flute, causing a build-up of gum and bad smells; it also poses a higher risk of fire breaking out in your chimney which is not only risky to your health, but your home!

Clean firewood

Often cheap wood contains chemicals that can be damaging to your health. By ensuring you only choose clean wood, you can guarantee it is free of nasty chemicals that could otherwise affect the health of you and your family.
