Stock up on wood while it’s warm

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

Wood burn­ing stoves are be­com­ing an in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar op­tion for UK house­holds, as more home­own­ers are dis­cov­er­ing the ben­e­fits of heat­ing their homes with solid fuel and biomass, but it’s im­por­tant to en­sure you stock up on sup­plies of good qual­ity wood now.

For one or two-room heat­ing dur­ing au­tumn and spring, and as a booster for freez­ing win­ter pe­ri­ods, you will need about three to four tons of wood a year and enough well-ven­ti­lated space to store it.

Only well-dried, split wood should be used as burn­ing wood which is dirty, de­cayed or very wet will pro­duce less heat and re­duce the life of your stove.
