LOCAL SEASONED FIREWOOD
Buying firewood should be easy. Cuddling up next to a warm fireplace or using wood to heat your home shouldn’t require hard work or haggling over prices. Dunham’s Lawn Care is known for providing our clients across the Dayton area with high-end firewood.
Beautifully seasoned and clean, our firewood will burn longer, slower and with less smoke than fresher, greener wood.
All of our firewood is a combination of certified hardwoods like maple, oak and birch which are the best types of wood for long burning fires.
BENEFITS OF USING SEASONED FIREWOOD
Creosote is a top concern for anyone using a wood stove. This chemical is released by burning any wood, but burning wet wood dramatically increases the rate of creosote buildup on your flue and chimney, increasing the risk of a chimney fire. Using seasoned firewood can help keep your home safer.
Seasoning wood, or removing moisture, increases the efficiency of heating in a wood burning stove. If there’s water in the wood, some of the heat energy created by burning will need to be used to remove the water – instead of to heat your home.
Wood with moisture at just 40% can hurt your burning efficiency by 50%. Fresh cut wood usually has a 60% moisture content.
Wet wood also increases smoke and soot output. In early stages of burning, gasifying occurs which emits harmful pollutants. This can color your glass in front of your fireplace, the brick on your fireplace and is also harder on the environment.
Because of moisture needing more energy to be burned, it can also take longer to ignite. This can be a huge pain if you rely on burning wood to heat your home. Even once you ignite green, unseasoned firewood, it won’t burn as well or produce as much heat. Lighting seasoned firewood is much easier and more effective.
