Warm Your Home And Beat The January BluesPosted on - 12.01.22
January is one of the coldest months here in the UK. Where we see figures hit minus numbers more often, and of course our energy bills skyrocket. Not to mention the recent rise in bills anyway.
So, why heat the whole house, when you can make use of that wonderful log burner and heat the room you are using at a fraction of the cost!
Log Burner Over Central Heating
Over the past few years, we have seen an increase in homeowners investing in log burners for their homes. Many have made the choice purely for cosmetic reasons, while others have noticed the rise in fuel bills and are doing their bit to keep them down.
When using central heating, you find yourself heating the whole house, even when you are simply using one room. And with the rise in prices, this isn't always the most economical decision. When the weather is somewhat milder, it might be okay to say pop on an extra layer, but when we hit minus figures, it's far safer to light your log burner and enjoy its warmth.
Logs in Stoke-on-Trent have never been easier to find. Here at D Price and Sons, we can have them delivered straight to your door.
The Right Logs This Winter
Kiln Dried Logs in Stoke-on-Trent are the best logs you can purchase for your home this winter. Kiln-dried logs have had their moisture removed, which makes them ready to go straight into your log burner, without all the smoke you would get from logs that have been left outside your local convenience store.
It's not just the level of moisture that affects how your logs burn, it's also the wood that has been used in your fire. Hardwood logs Stoke-on-Trent offer a longer burning time, along with a hotter burn than their softwood counterparts.
Lighting Hardwood Logs
If you are looking to start your fire, and you have taken the advice to use hardwood logs, you might want to consider investing in some kindling to get your fire started. Trying to light a hardwood log straight away, even a kiln-dried one, can sometimes be as easy as lighting a house brick. However, a splattering of kindling can help to raise the temperature enough to get the hardwood to light.
Once your logs are lit, they can keep the fire going for up to 5 hours, depending on the log burner you have. You will need to remember to add additional logs while the current logs are still hot. However, it's worth considering when you want the fire to go out, as you should never leave a lit fire unattended.
