Moisture testing our Kiln Dry Logs

Make sure your logs are ready for burning

Kiln dry hardwood logs are the best logs for your stove as they produce less tar and have a much lower moisture content than seasoned or newly cut logs. At Homefires and fuels we spot test all of our deliveries to make sure our logs are exceptionally dry.

For burning we recommend logs are under 20% moisure and ours are usually well under this. To be sure of low moisture content, dry logs, we recommend that customers buy a moisture meter. Low moisture =dry logs = less tar and deposits in your chimnmey and liner and the environment  and a longer life for your appliance.
