Why Heat Your Home With Coal & Kiln Dried Logs?Posted on - 01.02.23
Having a stove installed in your home usually requires either burning wood or coal. However, thanks to the wonders of modern technology, multi-fuel burners are now widely available and offer more versatility, allowing you to burn both coal and logs.
Being a premium fuel supplier, we want to point out the main advantages of heating your home with coal and kiln dried logs from D Price & Sons. Keep on reading to learn how you can benefit from making the switch to burning coals or logs.
Advantages of Coal
As we see the rising costs of electricity and gas, many people turn to their burners as the main source of heating. In short, smokeless coal is more cost-effective than traditional coal.
It’s well-known for its ability to burn hotter for a longer time. This means having to top up your appliance less often to keep your home nice and toasty. Along with using less coal, you can get better value and save money from the fact that you are spending less on re-stocking your supply.
Our blue flame smokeless coal is completely combusted, meaning less carbon monoxide is released while burning. A blue flame indicates safer combustion as gas is being burned efficiently without any unburned or wasted gas. Overtime, it can reduce your carbon footprint.
Releasing up to 80% less smoke and up to 20% less emissions than traditional coal when burned, smokeless coal is more friendly to the environment, without compromising on performance.
Easier to Clean
One of the disadvantages of traditional coal is how much residue it leaves behind in your stove and how hard this makes it to clean your stove. Whereas, smokeless coal produces less ashes and this makes it easier to clean up after burning. Smokeless coal also leaves behind less soot, a dark residue that can stain the inside and the glass in the stove door. Too much soot can even lead to damage to your stove or flue pipes.
Advantages of Kiln Dried Logs
Produces More Heat and Less Smoke
Our kiln-dried logs contain up to 20% less moisture, allowing them to release up to 3 times more heat. Due to the lower moisture content, there will naturally produce less smoke whilst you burn your logs in your log burner. Burning damp wood will produce more smoke and can cause tar to build up in your flue.
Ready To Use
Our kiln dried bags are available in bulk bags, so they are ready to use without any preparation, straight from the bag and they are available in large quantities. The logs are conveniently cut into various thickness and lengths to easily fit into most burners and open fireplaces.
Less Storage Needed
Another big advantage of purchasing kiln dried logs is there is less need for large storage areas. Perfect for small houses with limited space to store wood. After all, if you were to purchase non-dried firewood, you would need to have enough space and patience to allow it to dry. Most firewood can take months to dry off before being able to use it. With kiln-dried logs, they’re ready to be placed on your fire straight away.
