As the crisp breeze of autumn settles in, homeowners across Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, and Surrey are gearing up for the cozy embrace of winter. With the temperatures dropping, the allure of a warm and crackling fire becomes irresistible. In this blog post, we explore the world of seasoned logs and kindling, essential companions for every wood burner and fireplace enthusiast.

Why Seasoned Logs Matter

  1. Efficient Burning: Seasoned logs, dried for an extended period, offer a more efficient and controlled burn compared to freshly cut wood. The drying process eliminates excess moisture, ensuring a cleaner and hotter flame.
  2. Reduced Smoke and Creosote: Well-seasoned logs produce less smoke and creosote, minimizing the risk of chimney fires. This not only keeps your indoor air quality high but also enhances the safety of your home.
  3. Cost-Effective: While seasoned logs might come with a slightly higher upfront cost, their efficiency results in a longer burn time. This, in turn, can save you money in the long run.

Choosing the Right Wood

Our bags and tipper loads are a mixture of Ash, Cherry, Silver Birch, Apple and Pear. Consumer Advisory Ltd recommends homeowners in Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, and Surrey to consider the following types of wood for their wood burners:

  • Ash:
    • Density and Heat Output: Ash is known for its high energy content, making it an excellent choice for producing a substantial amount of heat.
    • Low Moisture Content: Ash tends to have a lower moisture content, contributing to efficient burning and reduced smoke production.
    • Clean Burn: The clean-burning properties of ash result in less creosote buildup in the chimney, enhancing safety.
  • Cherry:
    • Sweet Aroma: Cherry wood releases a pleasant and sweet aroma when burned, adding a delightful fragrance to your home.
    • Good Heat Output: While not as dense as some hardwoods, cherry still provides a good heat output, making it suitable for wood burners.
  • Silver Birch:
    • Quick Drying: Silver birch dries relatively quickly, allowing for easier seasoning and quicker use in wood burners.
    • Bright Flame: Birch produces a bright flame, creating an aesthetically pleasing and visually appealing fire.
  • Apple:
    • Fruity Fragrance: Burning apple wood emits a delightful, fruity aroma, enhancing the overall ambiance in your home.
    • Moderate Heat Output: Apple wood offers a moderate heat output, making it suitable for both ambiance and warmth.
  • Pear:
    • Sweet Scent: Similar to apple wood, burning pear wood releases a sweet and pleasant scent, contributing to a welcoming environment.
    • Steady Burn: Pear wood burns steadily and produces a consistent flame, providing reliable warmth.

The Art of Kindling

No fire is complete without kindling, the small, easily combustible materials that help ignite your seasoned logs. Here are some tips on selecting and using kindling effectively:

  1. Dry Twigs and Small Branches: Gather dry twigs and small branches to create a base for your fire. These should be dry and easy to ignite.
  2. Newspaper or Firestarter Cubes: Place crumpled newspaper or firestarter cubes underneath your kindling to provide an initial spark. These items are readily available and make fire-starting a breeze.
  3. Kindling Size Matters: Use small to medium-sized kindling to ensure a steady and controlled ignition. Gradually add larger pieces as the fire establishes itself.
