Kiln Dried Firewood for Sale in Stoke-on-Trent

Although the entire city of Stoke-on-Trent is under a smokeless zone, that doesn't mean you can't usefirewood in Stoke on Trent, as long as you have the right equipment. DEFRA, the government body responsible for smoke control, have a list of exempt appliances and the fuel that they are exempt for, including most wood burning stoves. If you're not sure whether your stove is exempt or not, you can search for it on their site.

Dry Logs for Wood Burning Stoves

Using the right logs for your wood burning stove is vital. Logs that have a high moisture content, such as freshly chopped or poorly dried logs, will give off a lot of smoke. Not only could the large amount of smoke produced get you a £1,000 fine for breaking the smoke control laws, it will also clog up your stove's chimney with tar, making it less efficient and very likely to stop working.

When you place an order with Logs Direct, we ensure that all your firewood is kiln dried to below 20% moisture content, so that your stove will burn cleanly and avoid the damage from smoke. This isn't the only benefit of dried wood, however. The drier your firewood is, the easier it will be to light, the more powerfully it will burn and the longer it will last. Especially when you're using a wood burning stove, kiln dried logs are an incredibly efficient source of heat. You may even want to consider getting a backboiler to allow you to heat your water at the same time, saving you even more money.

Smokeless Fuel for Open Fires

Not everyone in Stoke-on-Trent has a wood burning stove, which is why we continue to offer smokeless fuels for open fires. Smokeless coals such as Excel are a great way of enjoying the look and feel of a coal fire without any of the smoke that it would usually produce. This not only avoids the smoke control laws, but will also make your home feel and smell much cleaner.
