Why Kiln Dried Firewood is the Better Choice

Seasoned firewood or greenwood contains high moisture content causing crackling, heavy soot, and making fires more difficult to start. Kiln dried firewood is easier to light and burns cleaner, hotter fires. Here are the facts:

  • Kiln Dried Firewood: Cut and dried in industrial kilns for 2-3 days at 150-200 degrees, which removes over 1000 lbs. of water per cord!
  • Cleaner wood, less bark and debris to track into your home.
  • Can be stored in your garage or basement instead of outside.
  • Less creosote means less chimney problems and maintenance
  • Weighs less - much lighter then green or even short term seasoned.
  • Ignites easily and burns efficiently.
  • Ready to burn the day it is delivered and available when you need it.
  • Price is comparable to seasoned firewood
  • No bugs, pests or critters transported into your home.

Snap, crackle and pop sounds better with milk than wood.

With less moisture in your wood, your fire burns more easily, more efficiently and more safely. Snapping and crackling is water being heated, which can cause more dangerous sparks and sap heat from flames. Some less reputable dealers will mix in seasoned wood.
