So, what does ‘kiln dried’ mean? Kiln drying is a process of force drying by virtually sucking the moisture out of the log, right from the centre. Unlike a lot of seasoned logs on the Irish market the overall average moisture content of kiln dried logs is between 15 and 20%.
So what are the advantages of using our kiln dried logs? Well, first and foremost, we guarantee consistency meaning that every log load will have a moisture content of 20% or below. Being consistently dry means it will light easily, burn cleanly and provide maximum heat output. Not only that, but the stove glass should not go black, excess soot build up and tarring of your chimney or flume will also be significantly reduced.
Until one tries kiln dried logs the difference cannot be truly appreciated with most customers shocked about how much more heat the kiln dried logs output.
Kiln dried firewood burns cleaner, warmer and for longer.
