It is essential that you use dry firewood in your stove. Stove manufacturers only recommend a maximum of 20% moisture content and so you need to look for the new HETAS/Woodsure, ‘Ready to Burn’ logo which guarantees the logs are below 20%. This scheme is supported by DEFRA to help improve fuel quality. All Certainly Wood kiln dried logs are approved under this scheme.

This quality will ensure a clean burn with no blackening of the stove glass or build-up of soot or tar in the chimney or flue. It also means that in an efficient stove, you will actually use far less firewood, so more cost effective.

Our kiln dried logs are ‘Ready to Burn’ so you need to ensure they are stored in a cool dry place, either in a log store or garage.
