Is it worth it? (Part 2)

We're back again to describe the major differences between traditionally seasoned firewood and our Kiln Dried Firewood. Today we want to get into "Heat Output & BTU's" and what it means for you. 

Most people have heard of it before, maybe when shopping for a grill at the store. But what you may not have known is that BTU's also pertain to firewood. Different types of wood put off different amounts of heat. Most people know of the common hardwood being Oak, and some may be unaware that there are a lot of different species of Oak that all have their own heat output levels. The problem with seasoned firewood is its inconsistent moisture content, you can have the hottest burning species of Oak firewood, but if it's not properly seasoned you are going to waste heat output finishing the drying process before it even starts warming your home. Even firewood that has been seasoned for a year still has a considerable amount of moisture in it, that's why you get the popping and crackling while the fire is struggling to ignite. It's the moisture in the wood being essentially boiled out of itself. 

With our Kiln Dried Firewood the drying process is complete, so the heat output is being used to immediately warm your home. There's no moisture causing hissing and popping, just an incredibly warm fire that is effortless to get started. The biggest difference between the 2 types of firewood, is that our kiln dried firewood is consistent with each and every piece. You won't have to move around the logs or continually poke and prod at the fire to keep it going. Due to the efficiency of our firewood and the heat it puts out you will end up using less Kiln Dried Firewood to produce the same heat as compared to seasoned firewood. 

Another advantage of our Kiln Dried Firewood is due to the process in which we use to split and deliver the firewood you receive a product that is clean enough to store indoors. No worrying about bugs, no worrying about mud.

Is it worth it? (Part 1 of 2)

We get asked this question quite often, most people question if kiln dried firewood is actually better than traditionally seasoned firewood. We've heard that this is a Connecticut fad that will just pass. But the reality is, Kiln Dried Firewood has been around for way longer than you probably think. Unfortunately, it's an expensive process. When met with the financial aspect most companies pick splitting whatever wood they can get and toss it in a pile outside to season for a year. 

Here at Country Kiln Firewood, we would rather the investment in quality, kiln dried firewood over traditionally seasoned firewood because it's such a clear winner when they are compared. Kiln Dried Firewood burns cleaner, hotter and more efficiently than standard firewood. That equates to using less wood to put out the same amount of heat. Beyond the efficiency is the cleaner fire you get with our firewood. Standard firewood sits in the elements almost always in a dirt area in someone's backyard. That firewood has to sit outside for an entire year before it's even remotely ready to be sold and burned. You've seen the piles before, they're never turned or moved around, so only the outer most layer is being dried, the inside is dark, wet and a perfect habitat for mold and insects. On top of that, you have no real way of knowing exactly how long that wood has actually been seasoning for, it could be a month or 5 years, it looks exactly the same either way. 

Our Kiln Dried Firewood is split directly into our kiln's cages, it never touches the ground or sits in the elements for months on end. No rain, no mold, and especially no bugs! The kiln reaches temperatures of over 250* for a period of 3 days all while being constantly monitored for its moisture content. In that time large fans circulate the air ensuring each and every piece is being dried to our desired moisture level. From there it's put into our delivery trucks and delivered the same day. You, in turn, receive quality, kiln dried firewood that won't leave a trail of dirt and debris behind every time you start a fire. Due to its lowered moisture content, there is far less smoke and no spitting and popping from the logs. With less smoke being created you can breathe easier while enjoying a wonderful evening by the fire. An added benefit of kiln dried firewood is due to it's cleaner burning, there are fewer byproducts being created that stick to the chimney walls and disperse through your home.

Did you know about BTUs?

Yep BTU, you've heard it before when you've looked a grills, maybe even your fireplace insert. But did you know that different woods produce different BTUs? 

The obvious one everyone always thinks of is "oak". But does red oak or white oak produce more heat? They're a close match, but white oak boasts a slightly higher btu rating. But maybe what you didn't know is Sugar Maple actually has a higher btu rating than either oak species. 

Knowing what species is best for heat output isn't really your job, its ours. That's why we process our own wood. All the wood we process into firewood is cut down by our Tree Service company Rayzor's Edge Tree Service. We know exactly what is being processed and delivered to your door.

Why buy in bulk?

You've seen it at the grocery store, gas station, maybe even a big box store, pre-packaged bundles of "quality" kiln dried wood. Although it may seem like a bargain for 8 pieces of wood, you end up paying $1,200 - $1,500 for a full cord of wood. We gathered prices from multiple locations and couldn't believe it ourselves. You're paying for the bag, label, shipping, price gouging from whoever is selling it on a cold December day.

With Country Kiln Firewood you're paying for the wood...that's it. We deliver and stack your order. No hidden charges, no annual contracts or delivery plans. You save hundreds of dollars and don't have to do anything but put another log on the fire, sit back and relax.

Why is kiln dried wood better ?

Our state of the art kiln removes the moisture from the wood creating a superior product. The industry stanard air seasoned wood contains over 60% moisture, so when you finally get your fire to stay lit you never receive it's full heat potential. The heat the fire produces is wasted boiling the moisture from the wood. It requires putting more wood on the fire to produce a noticeable amount of heat, thus wasting more wood than necessary.

With kiln dried wood the moisture in the wood measures less than 20%. There's no struggling to get your fire lit and no worrying about it going out. You also receive the full heat potential from the wood, that means you use less wood to produce more heat.  Another major benefit of kiln dried wood is the drying process kills all mold spores so you can safely store the wood indoors. No worries about bugs either as the high temperatures kill off anything that may be hiding in the wood.
