Have you ever had firewood that you received from another company that was difficult to start or wouldn't stay lit? Ever felt like your fire wasn't giving off enough heat to keep you comfortable?
Firewood is an investment. Due to the lower moisture content of the kiln dried wood, you receive the most efficient, clean burning wood available. Our process removes the moisture from the wood and kills the mold and insects that can infest your home. Not only is our kiln dried firewood better than standard air seasoned wood, the advantage of purchasing in bulk is obvious. Pre-bundled wood from stores ends up costing $1200-$1500 per cord! Dont forget that with store bought wood you have to stack it yourself. OR you could have Country Kiln Firewood deliver and stack it for free!
What is kiln drying ?
Kiln drying wood is the process of "baking" wood at temperatures that reach up to 250 degrees. It stays in our kiln for 2 -3 days where multiple fans blow the heated air around the wood. This reduces the moisture content of the wood to less than 20%. Green wood that is air dried and delivered to your home can contain 60% or more moisture.
"When you consider that one kiln dried piece of wood creates the same amount of heat that 3 wet logs produce then you can do the calculations to determine if the wood you are purchasing for your fireplace every year is actually costing you more than kiln-dried wood would cost."
"If you are using a fireplace or wood burning stove, kiln dried wood is the best to burn."
