Although it is important to choose a woodburning stove that meets the requirements of the property in question, the fuel that a property owner intends to use needs to be just as high in quality too. After all, a wood burner can only outlast its longevity guarantee if it is provided with care, and this all starts with the right choice of fuel. Here at Denton Stove Centre, we have a variety of different woodburning stoves available and in this blog, we have decided to go over the benefits of using seasoned firewood…

What is seasoned firewood?

In order for a piece of wood to be considered suitable for burning, it has to have the moisture removed from it and this process is known as ‘seasoning’. In fact, the ideal moisture rating for seasoned firewood is 20% or less as this means that the wood has been dried at a steady and controlled rate. After all, it can take 6 to 12 months to completely season freshly cut firewood.

Does seasoned firewood produce a more efficient fire?

Seasoning is an essential process because the removal of water makes the wood much easier to ignite. After all, waterlogged wood requires more energy in order to hold a flame which is why it can be very difficult to light freshly cut wood. In fact, if moisture ridden wood is burned then it may even produce a volatile black smoke as it burns. On the other hand, seasoned firewood with a low moisture rating will burn at a much higher temperature for a longer period of time which makes it a very efficient option.

Is seasoned firewood expensive?

Since firewood with a low moisture content is easier to burn and will produce a more efficient fire, it is also safe to say that it can help property owners save money in the long term too. After all, less fuel is generally required in order to generate the same results as burning unseasoned fire in a woodburning stove and this means that homeowners have to pay less money to heat their home.

As the most aesthetical option on the market, woodburning stoves seem to be increasing in popularity with each year that passes. With this said, the majority of homeowners are unable to tell when their firewood is adequately seasoned in preparation for burning which can cause a lot of problems down the line.
