Posted on - 24.02.23

You may have spotted kiln dried logs on our website before but do you actually know what they are? Or what their purpose is? We believe it’s important to know exactly what you are burning in your home and why you do it. As such, we created this article to explain what makes kiln dried logs different from your traditional firewood. Continue reading to find out more. 

How Are Kiln Dried Logs Made?

Kiln dried logs are firewood which have been artificially dried in a kiln. The firewood is cut into wedge pieces and dried at 60-80°C for a period of 3 to 7 days. The purpose of kilning logs is to make them burn hotter at a lower moisture content with higher and longer lasting energy.

Our kiln-dried logs have up to 20% less moisture, releasing up to 3 times more heat than traditional firewood. Less moisture means less smoke is released while burning these logs in your stove or log burner. Burning damp wood will release more smoke which is both harmful to the environment and your chimney.
