What makes us different?

Monday, 15 March 2021

Wood and lighting materials for your fire are available in countless places nowadays.  From your local garage, supermarket or even garden centre.  So why should you buy your fuel supplies from N I FUELS DIRECT?

WET WOOD IS BAD - REALLY BAD?

When you purchase a bag of wood that is not kiln dried, you  will definitely pay less for it, but it will cost you more in the short and longer term.

Moisture greatly effects the burning process of wood. If for example, a log retaining 50% moisture is burnt at high temperature, about 5% of the logs energy is wasted through evaporating water vapour. This water vapour then condenses on your flue, which will rot your system in no time.

Also the fire never reaches a high temperature as it burns off the water and natural oils in the wood.  This causes smoke and creosote and will blacken your flue and glass front.

When burning wet wood, you also run the risk of a chimney fire. Unseasoned wood will cause excess smoke and soot (as well as crushing your fire's flame). This excess soot and creosote can get stuck to your flue pipe & liner; and can combust, causing a fire.

If your appliance makes use of an airwash system, wood with a high moisture content significantly reduces its effect, causing excess emissions to stain the glass.

In short, just don’t use wet wood. Ever. It’s just not worth it.

CONSIDER THE ENVIRONMENT (and your neighbours)

If you are burning wet woods ourside, your chiminea, fire pit, barbecue or pizza oven will not be pleasant to sit around.  The excess smoke will not only cause discomfort to those around the fire but also to any neighbours or passers by.

Our woods and fuels are guaranteed to burn clean and efficiently and in some cases with very little smoke or ash at all.
