Using Kiln Dried Logs and Hardwood Briquettes to Supplement Your Central Heating

Night Briquettes and ASHPs

Central heating systems are essential for keeping our homes warm and comfortable during the winter months. However, they can also be expensive to run, especially in light of rising energy prices. One way to reduce your heating costs is to supplement your central heating system with a wood burning stove. Wood burning stoves are a highly efficient way to heat your home, and they can be used to burn a variety of fuels, including kiln dried logs and hardwood briquettes.

Kiln dried logs and hardwood briquettes are both excellent fuels for wood burning stoves. They burn cleanly and efficiently, and they produce a lot of heat. They are also relatively inexpensive, making them a cost-effective way to supplement your central heating system, and are also great to use when temperatures are starting to drop and that don’t require your central heating system to run 24/7. So starting a fire to heat up living areas is often more cost-effective than to get the air source heat pump running.

Kiln dried logs and hardwood briquettes are two types of wood fuel that can be used to supplement your central heating system. They are both efficient and environmentally friendly, and they can be used to heat a single room or your entire home.

Kiln dried logs are logs that have been dried in a kiln to reduce their moisture content. This makes them easier to light and burn, and it also reduces the amount of smoke that they produce. Kiln dried logs also produce more heat than seasoned firewood.

Hardwood briquettes are made from compressed sawdust and other wood waste. They are a dense and efficient fuel that burns for a long time. Hardwood briquettes also produce very little ash.

Last winter we switched to using premium kiln dried logs and briquettes from Lekto Woodfuels and they are highly recommended if you are looking for good quality logs and briquettes. Visit their website to find out more.

How to supplement your central heating system with kiln dried logs and hardwood briquettes

To supplement your central heating system with kiln dried logs and hardwood briquettes, you will need to install a wood burning stove. Wood burning stoves are available in a variety of sizes and styles, so you can choose one that is right for your home.

Once you have installed a wood burning stove, you can start using kiln dried logs and hardwood briquettes to heat your home. Simply follow the instructions that came with your wood burning stove for how to light and use it safely.

Tips for using kiln dried logs and hardwood briquettes efficiently

  • Use only kiln dried logs and hardwood briquettes in your wood burning stove. Seasoned firewood can be used, but it will not burn as efficiently as kiln dried wood.
  • Make sure that your wood burning stove is properly seasoned before using it. To do this, burn a small amount of wood in the stove every day for a week or two.
  • Keep your wood burning stove clean. Remove any ash or soot from the stove after each use.
  • Do not overload your wood burning stove. Overloading the stove will reduce its efficiency and increase the risk of a chimney fire.

Using kiln dried logs and hardwood briquettes in a wood burning stove is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to supplement your central heating system. Wood burning stoves are efficient and produce a lot of heat, and they can be used to heat a single room or your entire home.

If you are considering using a wood burning stove to supplement your central heating system, be sure to follow the safety tips above and to have your wood burning stove inspected and cleaned regularly by a qualified professional.
