You’ve just taken delivery of a load of unseasoned logs which doesn’t burn as well as you hoped?
Hardwoods grown in the UK typically require a minimum of 12 months to season, preferably 24 months. Unseasoned firewood may be cheap to buy and if you have the storage space then it’s a possible option but if you try to burn that unseasoned firewood, you’ll run into problems.
The temptation is to burn coal along with it to try to get some heat.
Don’t do this.
Fossil fuels give off sulphur, unseasoned firewood gives off moisture. Combine the two and you have sulphuric acid which will make short work of your stainless steel flue liner and eat away at the internals of your stove.
Always buy fuel from a reputable dealer
and if possible insist on HETAS “woodsure” accreditation – your guarantee of quality and performance. You’ll save money in the long run and enjoy your stove a lot more!
