Burning wet logs produces a heavy smoke that condenses onto the cooler sides of the flue or chimney, producing tar and acidic residues which cause thick deposits to build up. This is a major cause of chimney fires and these compounds also cause damage to the stove and flue.
Other advantages of wood briquettes are that they are clean and easy to handle, they don't bring bugs and spiders into the house and they take up a lot less space in storage. For all but the most enormous stoves or those lucky enough to have access to free timber, they also cost less to burn, calorie for calorie, than logs. And if you lack storage space for woodfuel, why not use our storage service and virtual draw-down system to take advantage of the best bulk-buying prices. Store your fuel with us and just collect it from our depot as and when you need it.
