The Benefits of Using Seasoned Firewood in a Fire Pit

Do you enjoy sitting around a fire pit for the winter? Whether you’re heating your home for the cold season or just enjoy a warm fire on the weekends with your family, you have to use seasoned firewood.

Seasoned firewood has been cut, split, and dried out to reach a moisture content of less than 20%. This means it burns much cleaner and produces less smoke, resulting in a more enjoyable fire. Here are more reasons why you should start using seasoned firewood:

  • Decreased creosote
    When firewood burns slowly, the smoke usually contains a high concentration of creosote. The accumulation of creosote in your chimney can cause restricted airflow and even fires. Since seasoned firewood produces less smoke it will, therefore, create much less creosote.
  • Easier to light
    The drier the wood, the easier it is to light. If you want to save time and energy, you need to use seasoned firewood. As a provider of tree removal service in New Haven County, Connecticut, we always encourage our clients to use seasoned firewood so they can save more time and energy.
  • Boost efficiency
    Fresh-cut wood usually contains 60 percent of moisture. If you’re using fresh-cut wood, your wood-burning stove will need to remove the extra water from your firewood. By using seasoned firewood with 20 percent of moisture content, it can increase the efficiency of your stove.
