A firewood moisture meter is perhaps the most important tool for helping you to ensure that you get the most out of your stove or open fire. A great investment if you burn wood from other sources alongside our own.
Burning wet wood will lead to an increase in smoke and emissions and produce little heat. It will also lead to blackening of stove glass and a build-up of soot in the chimney. The SIA recommends that only logs have a moisture content below 20%.
We regularly test our stockpiles and our current readings are 12%. This is achieved by the process of "Seasoning" - splitting and then storing the logs within large well-ventilated barns for 1-2 years.
We believe seasoned wood is preferable to kiln-dried as once the moisture content gets less than 10% the wood quickly burns away, sucking in too much air and cooling the flue gases as it does this, which in turn increases unwanted emissions. A little moisture is good for moderating the burn rate.
