Who doesn’t love sitting in front of a warm fire or wood burning stoves on a cold winter’s evening? The crackling fire from wood burning stoves is a feast for the senses; the beautiful golden glow, the gentle popping noises, and the blanket of warmth make it a wonderful heating option for your home; however, it’s important to ensure you are taking care to consider the environmental impacts that your fire can have.
Finding eco logs for sale and using them to build your fire can be a much more environmentally friendly option while still giving you the warmth you need. In this post, we’ll explore how you can benefit from eco logs in Dublin and how they can be a better alternative to traditional firewood in multi fuel stoves.
The Limitations of Traditional Firewood
If you are wondering why you should choose eco logs in Dublin rather than traditional firewood or wood briquettes for multi fuel stoves, allow us to explain some of the problems associated with traditional firewood.
You may find that traditional firewood is sourced unsustainably, meaning it can contribute to deforestation and the destruction of habitats. Too much and irresponsible harvesting practices can lead to resource depletion as the forests may struggle to recover if too much is taken.
Traditional firewood or wood briquettes may also not have as long a logs burn time or burn as efficiently, especially if left untreated or seasoned incorrectly. If firewood cannot produce the warmth you are looking for, you may have to resort to using more firewood or burning your fire for longer to achieve the heat you want. Not only does this mean there’s less efficiency in each log, but it’s also harmful to the environment.
Burning traditional untreated firewood can also be problematic for the environment as it releases pollutants into the air, affecting air quality.
The Benefits of Eco Logs
Eco logs are a fantastic method of recycling. They are made with the shavings and sawdust that come from wood in factories that produce furniture and wooden floors, which are compressed to create the fuel required for your fire. This means that while trees are cut down to make the floor and furniture products, no more have to be cut down, specifically to make our fire fuel. This not only helps reduce the need to harvest trees, but it also means the factories we use can become greener, as their wood waste is recycled for another purpose rather than just thrown away.
Eco logs are also a great choice for your winter heating because of their high heat output and very little ash. Thanks to the low moisture content, you can enjoy a more efficient log burn and heat output, and you can also benefit from very minimal ash, so it's cleaner for the environment and your home. The longer and warmer burns give you the warmth you’re looking for against the winter chill more effectively, making it a much more environmentally friendly option than traditional firewood.
So, why not try eco heat logs this winter? On those long, cold winter nights, you’ll want a reliable and efficient high heat output, and it’s always nice to know that you are still getting what you need but in a more environmentally responsible way.
