Quality Dry Logs
Poor, unseasoned or damp logs are probably the biggest cause of poor stove performance
There is a myth that you can put any old rubbish on a wood burner and it will be fine. It won’t! Really dry, seasoned wood is essential for the stove to work well. Wood should contain less than 20% moisture. Any more and you are just boiling water! It won’t burn, it won’t draw and it won’t heat. Use a moisture meter to test the inside of your logs. Damp, unseasoned wood is the biggest cause of poor stove performance.
For multi-fuel stoves check your stove handbook for what can be burned. It is generally recommended not to burn standard “house coal” as this contains too much sulphur and will damage the stove and liner.
