Ready to Burn initiative launches

As the colder months draw in and wood burning stove owners start thinking about stocking up on logs, Woodsure -- the wood fuel quality assurance scheme -- has launched a Ready to Burn initiative to help homeowners look after their stoves and improve air quality.
 
Air quality and wood fuel has become a hot topic and stove owners are being asked to think about the impact of burning poor quality logs has on the environment. A stove is only is a good as the wood it burns and so the Ready to Burn stamp of approval will reassure those who purchase logs with its logo that they are dry enough and ready to burn.
 
Burning wet wood is inefficient as it demands a lot of heat to boil off the water before the appliance can give out the proper level of heat to the room, hot water or heating systems. In turn, this creates a lot of smoke which damages the chimney and blackens the appliance and contributes to air pollution. Dry wood that has been properly sourced and seasoned or kiln dried means it produces fewer particulates, more heat efficiency and less maintenance -- chimneys are less likely to block and will remain easier to sweep.
