Is your firewood Ready to Burn?
Installation of a stove can be a whole new experience for many homeowners with a lot of information to take in. HETAS in partnership with Woodsure aims to eliminate the confusion surrounding what wood to burn. We have launch a scheme called “Ready to Burn” and it enables homeowners to have confidence in the wood they are buying.
Any wood displaying the Ready to Burn logo will have 20% moisture content or less and once you get it home it is “Ready to Burn”, safe in the knowledge that it will not be causing damage to their appliance and in addition will be reducing harmful emissions into the atmosphere.
We believe that there will be many benefits; appliances will function as they should, the environment will benefit from the reduction of harmful particulates from burning wet or unseasoned wood and homeowners will have the assurance that wood bearing the Ready to Burn logo is exactly that, ready-to-burn! If the right fuel is not used in appliances; the once-beautiful stove becomes ineffective, smokes and smoulders and over time creosote builds up in the appliance and flue.
