LI Firewood & Mulch Offers a Few Types of Firewood
LI Firewood & Mulch sells fully seasoned, semi-seasoned and kiln dried firewood. Seasons firewood and kiln dried firewood are popular choices. They are relatively the same because they are both “dry” woods but they do have differences. Let’s break down the differences.
Kiln Dried Firewood
Kiln dried firewood is firewood that has been seasoned by drying it in a kiln. Kiln dried firewood offers many advantages. With kiln dried firewood, you are guaranteed a low moisture content, making it ideal for getting a quick fire going and for a longer period of time. Kiln dried firewood ensures minimal smoke and ash. You will actually burn fewer logs and have more heat and a cleaner fire. A cleaner burn yields less creosote being produced, which can build up in your chimney or flue over time. Kiln dried firewood is lighter and easier to handle. Being clean, pest-free and dry, kiln dried firewood can even be stored inside. Kiln dried firewood is more expensive but you may feel its benefits outweigh the additional cost.
Seasoned wood is also known as “dry” wood. Wet wood won’t burn and will only cause smoke. Seasoned firewood is dried naturally through an open-air process instead of inside a kiln. Seasoned firewood is air dried so therefore, the moisture content may vary and not be able to be measured as with the kiln dried firewood. To be sure that seasoned firewood is thoroughly dried, the wood logs need to be cut into specific sizes, small enough to dry out properly.
Seasoned wood has typically been drying for a minimum of six months so the moisture from the wood is totally eliminated. That’s not good if you are in a rush to use it. A firewood seller like LI Firewood & Mulch handles that process for you, and will tell you how long your delivered firewood has been seasoned. Keep in mind, if you are on a budget, seasoned wood is cheaper than wood that has been kiln dried.
Cord of Firewood Dimensions
Firewood can be purchased in cord measurement. A cord is a unit used to measure the dry volume of firewood. A cord measures 4 ft. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. – approximately 128 cubic feet. To measure the volume of firewood, the logs must be stacked tightly in a parallel formation. Firewood pricing varies depending on the type of wood and order size. Firewood is sold in sizes to meet specific usage needs.
Calculate Your Season’s Worth Of Firewood Prior to Ordering
The old rule applies. Order too little firewood and you will run out at the most inopportune time. Order too much and you will have way too much left over at the end of the season. So how much firewood is right for your needs?
If you are unsure of how much firewood to purchase, the experts at LI Firewood & Mulch can help. You will need to answer a few questions like how often you will use the firewood and for what purposes? Heating a home will require a substantially more firewood volume than an occasional fireplace fire.
Firewood Needs to Be Stored Properly
You need to store your firewood correctly in order to expect the best fire performance and extend the life of the firewood. Stacking the firewood neatly is a must. A haphazard and messy firewood pile is not safe or efficient. Also, it is imperative to keep firewood off the ground or you will no doubt be faced with a pest infestation. For best results, try storing your firewood on a metal rack. Keep the firewood dry because dry firewood burns better and is safer. Be sure to stack firewood loosely with space all around. This will optimize airflow, preventing moisture build-up, decay, mold and fungus. Stack firewood away from pet or child play areas to avoid potential pile collapse and injuries.
