Firewood Guide

Good atmosphere: fireplaceand appropriate firewood make it possible

Heating with firewood is currently experiencing a renewed renaissance. It was centuries ago firewood the means of choice to light campfires or cheer on the home fireplace. Today, wood is in high demand again. The shift towards renewable energy sources, coupled with the abandonment of fossil fuels, is largely responsible for this.

What exactly is firewood and where are the differences to other wood?

Wood can be burned in different ways. The currently most efficient variant are the so-called „pellets“. Here, the wood is compressed into small cubes, which practically leads to a decisive advantage: The cubes require little storage space, but have a lot of energy. In classic firewood Is not that so. The wood is not further processed or reshaped, which is why the actual energy efficiency is relatively low. To make matters worse, the unprocessed wood takes away a lot of space and only burns well when it is dry itself.

In practice, entire heating systems are therefore rarely operated with firewood. The pellets or possibly even logs would be the better choice. Firewood is a good choice for secondary heating of the living room with the local fireplace and at the same time creating a blissful, romantic atmosphere in your own home. Since the wood is not treated in between, the right type of wood plays a key role in efficiency.

How efficient is the firewood from which trees?

Beech and ash naturally have a very high calorific value and are therefore very suitable as firewood. Of the two types of beech, beech is very common in commerce, as the calorific value is still slightly higher and the beech trees are much more prevalent in native German pine forests. The oak is rarely used, as it crackles heavily and a significant flying sparks impossible to use in open fireplaces. Unlike the birch, which is well suited for open hearths thanks to the low sparks and reduced smoke. Spruce has the highest combustion temperature among the wood species by far. Also positive: short warm-up times. So you do not have to preheat forever until heat is actually noticeable in the room.

What should be considered when dealing with firewood?

An open fireplace is also an open one Fireplace, Therefore, caution is advised, especially carpets and other flammable materials have lost nothing near such a fireplace. Away from safety, storage is another variable. Under no circumstances can traditional firewood keep up with pellets. However, energy efficiency will continue to decrease if the firewood is simply stored incorrectly. As a rough rule of thumb one speaks with firewood of about two to three years of storage time. If the wood is too fresh, it still contains too much moisture and therefore burns worse, while at the same time producing more smoke. During storage, care should be taken that the wood is airy but dry. Ideally under a canopy that protects against rain. An air-permeable base ensures that moisture is repelled.

When buying the individual situation plays a major role. If you have enough space and equipment to store firewood, you will be better off with a big order. Forestry offices and professional timber merchants do not shrink even from large purchase quantities. Anyone who only occasionally uses firewood or has no storage option will find the coveted wood on the Internet, in garden centers or in the hardware store of trust. Regional service providers sometimes offer long-term contracts with regular delivery. If the individual prices are compared with each other, it is necessary to differentiate between room and bulk space meters. The latter contain more spaces, which means that the real amount of wood is smaller than the space meter.
