Can I Use Locally Gathered Firewood to Heat My Lake Norman Home?
Considering that Lake Norman’s shoreline is blanketed with trees, you may feel compelled to gather and use local firewood. While locally gathered firewood may light, as well as burn, you may encounter several problems when using it to heat your Lake Norman home. Locally gathered firewood almost always has a high moisture content. It’s not uncommon for locally gathered wood to contain up to half its weight in water. All this water inhibits the wood’s combustion process, meaning it produces more emissions and less heat.
Burning locally gathered firewood in your Lake Norman home’s fireplace can lead to creosote buildup. The presence of excess moisture trapped inside the wood results in the production of more soot-filled smoke. Building a single fire with locally sourced firewood probably won’t cause any noticeable amount of creosote to accumulate inside your chimney. If you continue using it in your fireplace, though, locally sourced firewood may lead to a dangerous buildup of creosote.
While you may think seasoned firewood is a better solution, the quality is inconsistent at best. It will still contain moisture, plus it will have bugs, mold and fungus on it.
Why Kiln Dried Firewood from Cutting Edge Offers the Best Performance
Cutting Edge Firewood delivers the best firewood available.
You can avoid the aforementioned problems by using kiln dried firewood with which to heat your Lake Norman home. Kiln dried firewood often comes from the same species of tree that are found around Lake Norman, such as oak, cherry and hickory. The difference is that kiln dried firewood undergoes a processing technique in which moisture is extracted from its pores. When firewood is kiln dried, it’s placed inside an oven-like drying kiln.
Here at Cutting Edge Firewood, our kiln dried firewood goes through the most rigorous drying process in the industry. Our wood is conditioned for 48 hours, which is 12 times longer than the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) standard. Not only does this provide a superior level of heat; it also eliminates the possibility for mold and pests. If you’re going to build fires in your Lake Norman home, there’s no substitution for Cutting Edge Firewood’s kiln dried firewood. It produces more heat and fewer emissions. Furthermore, you can rest assured knowing that kiln dried firewood doesn’t contain mold or pests.
Do I Need Kiln Dried Firewood in a Fire Pit?
Enjoying a great fire at the lake isn’t just about building a fire when you’re inside. As we said before, the scenic beauty of Lake Norman makes it the perfect place to enjoy a gorgeous fire.
No one does gorgeous fires quite like Cutting Edge Firewood!
Many people think that, because they don’t have to worry about creosote build-up, they can burn anything in their fire pit. This is kind of like saying Lake Norman is the same as a polluted pond near Charlotte. Yes, they’re both bodies of water and they may be called lakes, but they do not provide the same experience.
When you build a fire in the outdoors, there are several important benefits to using Cutting Edge Firewood in your fire pit:
- The fire is much easier to light – you’ll only need one match to get the fire started.
- The firewood produces less smoke – no one wants to have their relaxing evening at the lake interrupted by billows of dark smoke coming from their fire pit.
- You’ll smell better – did you know that the moisture in wood is what causes that smokey smell to stick to you around the fire pit? Because our wood has such a low moisture content, the smokey smell doesn’t stick.
- Brighter, hotter flames – Lake Norman deserves a beautiful fire, and Cutting Edge Firewood can make it happen.
- It’s better for making s’mores!
Here at Cutting Edge Firewood, we’re all about the total experience around the fire. Not only do we deliver the best firewood available to Lake Norman, but we can also deliver tools and accessories to make your time truly memorable.
Our fire starters enable you to light every fire with a single match. Our Fire Pits come in a complete set that makes them easy and convenient to use, plus they’re built to last a lifetime!
