What is Kiln Dried Firewood?
Our Kiln Dried Wood is dried in a kiln using metal baskets. It has a moisture content of less than 15%, which is unheard of in regular air drying firewood. The air is controlled and able to circulate around the wood for maximum drying. As you can see, this takes special equipment and can be expensive. It also takes energy to remove the moisture from the wood, an estimated 1200 BTU per pound. This creates the perfect wood for burning and getting the maximum heat. Most people think that all wood burns the same. If you tried to burn "green" wood you will see that it is actually hard to burn because of the moisture content. A face cord of green wood weighs in at about 1500lbs. After drying in our kiln that same cord weights about 500lbs less. The reason is because most of the moisture is removed by our kiln. Even if the cord of wood was properly seasoned our kiln would still remove about 50% more moisture. That’s why it’s important to have dried wood for your fireplace, stove or restaurant oven. Most people don’t know that there is a difference in dried wood.
