Nearly all our logs are cut to a length of 25cm (+/- 10%) and after consulting with the majority of UK stove manufacturers we know these will fit 99.9% of UK stoves.
The diameter of our standard logs are 5-15cm measured at the widest point of the log. This provides smaller logs to build a good base to the fire and larger ones for a longer burn.
When anyone refers to ‘seasoned logs’ the moisture content will vary considerably, particularly at different times of the year. We ONLY recommend buying ‘seasoned’ logs if you are going to store the firewood for a further 6 months at least. This is fine as when you have sufficient space and can ensure the logs are stored under cover and with plenty or airflow through the stack.
HOW MUCH FIREWOOD DO I NEED?
Always a tricky one as it depends on your type of appliance, its efficiency, the house insulation etc. However as a guide, if you use your stove for just a few hours per evening you will need less than one cubic metre of logs per session. You will also need kindling – approx. 8 sticks per fire lighting and one or two of our 100% natural Waxling firelighters.
APPROXIMATE NETTED BAG DIMENSIONS
28cm x 28cm x 36cm / 25L / 0.028 meter3
Our net bags have the logs packed by hand so actually they are termed as ‘stacked’ volume and each bag contains approximately 0.028m3.
There are ways of telling how dry the wood is such as knocking 2 logs together and getting nice hollow sound, rather than a dull thud, or observing how many cracks are appearing in the log end. Well cracked will normally suggest, well dried.
However, the really best way to check the moisture content is by using a Moisture Meter. This will give you a pretty good guide as the actual reading of the firewood, both inside and out. Check inside by splitting a log open. Just be aware however that moisture meters are not always 100% accurate, particularly the very cheap ones.
