How to Use a Log Burner?

Answer

A log burner require fuel to be provided in a solid form (as opposed to wood-chips) and also at a moisture content of less than about 30%. To make sure the moisture content is met, the logs are stored outside, over summer, before they are required, so that they air-dry. These burner stoves are available in cast iron, steel and ceramic versions. Although many log-burners act as space heaters, the higher output versions are sometimes fitted with an integral back boiler, in order to provide domestic hot water and central heating via radiators if required.

To use a log burner, start by rolling sheets of newspapers into knots and place them in a pile in the log burning stove. Next, add twigs or kindlers; create a cone like structure, and then light the pile. When this is done, add more kindling sticks and a few logs. When the fire is building, allow air to circulate and once the logs are fully lit, you can close the air vents.
