What is Kiln-Drying?

Kiln-drying is a process in which firewood logs are placed inside a specially designed kiln, which is essentially a large oven, to remove moisture from the wood. The kiln is heated to specific temperatures and humidity levels to effectively dry the wood in a controlled environment.This results in seasoned and kiln-dried firewood logs with consistently low moisture content, typically around 10-20%, making them ready to burn immediately upon delivery, making kiln-dried firewood logs extremely convenient!

The Incredible Qualities of Kiln-Dried Firewood Logs ⬇

Kiln-dried firewood logs undergo a meticulously controlled drying process in specialised kilns, resulting in incredible quality and consistency. Here’s why it stands head and shoulders above air-dried firewood:

1. Optimal Moisture Content: Through precise temperature and humidity control, kiln-drying achieves a moisture level of around 20%, ideal for clean, efficient burning. Say goodbye to struggling with damp, smouldering firewood logs and hello to roaring flames and cosy warmth.

2. Pristine Cleanliness: The high temperatures employed during kiln-drying not only reduce moisture but also eradicate pests, fungi, and mould that may remain in the wood. With kiln-dried firewood from Green Olive Firewood, you can be rest assured that you’re enjoying a clean, hygienic fire without any excessive smoke or soot.

3. Instant Readiness: Unlike air-dried firewood, which may require months or even years to reach optimal seasoning, our high-quality, kiln-dried firewood logs are ready to use the moment they arrive at your doorstep. No waiting, no guessing—just immediate, hassle-free burning.

4. Consistent Performance: Every piece of kiln-dried firewood from Green Olive Firewood is meticulously inspected and seasoned to perfection, ensuring uniform quality and performance. You can expect consistent and cleaner burns and an even heat distribution, every time. Our kiln-dried firewood delivers a reliable, consistent experience with every burn.

Air-Dried Logs – The Differences

Air-dried firewood, on the other hand, takes a more natural approach to seasoning:

1. Time Constraints: Air-dried firewood takes a longer time to reach optimal moisture levels, as it relies on natural air circulation and sunlight for drying. This can result in variations in moisture content among logs, leading to inconsistent burning performance and the production of extra smoke. Additionally, air drying may not eliminate pests and fungi as effectively as kiln drying does, potentially compromising the cleanliness of the firewood. 

You may also need to plan and allow sufficient time for the air-dried firewood logs to dry adequately before use.

2. Limited Availability: Since air-drying requires ample space, proper ventilation, and favourable weather conditions, not all firewood suppliers may have the resources or infrastructure to offer air-dried firewood consistently. This can limit availability, especially in regions with challenging climates or limited storage facilities.

3. Quality Degradation Over Time: While air-dried firewood may start with acceptable moisture levels, prolonged exposure to moisture or inadequate storage conditions can lead to the reabsorption of water and an increase in moisture content. This can diminish the quality of the firewood over time and result in less clean and environmentally friendly burning experiences.
