Fuel Moisture in Firewood

Did you know fresh cut wood typically has a 60% moisture content? You should season your firewood for at least 6-months to ensure it’s below 20%.  


Here’s why:


  1. It’s Easier & More Efficient: Wet wood can take longer to ignite and requires more energy to burn because precious energy is wasted on evaporating water, rather than heating your home. 

  2. It’s Safer & Cleaner: Burning wet wood creates more particulate matter because there isn’t enough heat to burn all of the material. Particulate matter can pollute the air for your neighbors and buildup in your chimney, increasing the risk for fire.
