When it comes to choosing firewood for your home, the quality and type of wood can significantly impact your experience. In this post, we'll explore the different types of hardwoods ideal for indoor fireplaces, and what makes for high-quality firewood.
Choosing the right type of firewood is crucial for a good burn. Hardwoods like maple and ash are popular choices due to their high density and efficiency. These woods burn longer and hotter and produce less smoke, making them ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. Alongside these, woods like cherry, beech, oak, hickory, and birch also offer unique burning qualities, like pleasant aromas and long-lasting coals.
The quality of firewood is determined by several factors, the most important being seasoning and energy output. Well-seasoned firewood, typically dried for at least a year, ensures a cleaner and more efficient burn.
The energy output, measured in BTUs, indicates the heat value of the wood. On average, a good quality hardwood like those mentioned can have around 6,000,000 BTUs per face cord, offering excellent heat and efficiency.
