Wood Heating Values – It is very important to understand the heating values of different woods used for firewood. It is only common sense to burn soft woods when less heating is required from spring to autumn, leaving the denser woods for winter’s cold.
Not knowing the difference in wood heating values can really play with the common sense part of your decision making.
Wood heating values are necessary to make educated decisions
Wood heating values can be affected by moisture within the wood. Make sure all wood is seasoned as the presence of moisture in firewood takes a large quantity of energy during combustion.
For safety reasons, always sweep your chimney at least once per year!
