Did You Know? The History Behind Austell, GA
While Austell is a well-known city that’s technically part of the greater Atlanta metropolitan area, many residents here are unfamiliar with its history and origins. Austell was incorporated in the mid-1880s, during which the city was named after Atlanta National Bank — now known as Wachovia — founder General Alfred Austell. Prior to its incorporation, however, Austell was a popular area for hunting and wild game trapping. As hunters and trappers frequented the area, they began to discover some surprising effects of Austell’s waters: The salty river water was said to heal wounds and relieve muscle pain. This led to an increased interest in the new city, with hundreds of people settling here to build homes and create communities. According to the most recent census (2010), Austell now has a population of 6,581.

The Benefits of Using Kiln-Dried Firewood for Your Austell, GA Home
Assuming your Austell home has a fireplace, you burn any type of firewood to produce heat and beat the winter weather. However, kiln-dried firewood excels in its ability to produce clean, efficient heat. This is because kiln-dried firewood contains less moisture than both fresh and air-dried firewood. When firewood contains a significant amount of moisture, it’s difficult to light. You can go through an entire matchbook without the wet wood catching fire. This isn’t a problem with kiln-dried firewood, however. Kiln-dried firewood is exceptionally dry — containing 8% or less moisture — so it’s easier to light and produces more heat than fresh and air-fried firewood.
Furthermore, the kiln-dried firewood sold here at Cutting Edge Firewood is dried 12 times longer than the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) requirement. We kiln-dry our firewood for a full two days (48 hours) to create firewood that’s superior to our competitors. If you’re planning to warm your Austell home using a fireplace, it’s recommended that you invest in a rack of premium kiln-dried firewood offered by Cutting Edge Firewood.

How to Light Kiln-Dried Firewood
One of the great things about using kiln-dried firewood in or outside your Austell home is the fact that it’s easy to light. Conventional wisdom should lead you to believe that moist wood is difficult to light. With kiln-dried firewood having a moisture content of 8% or less, though, this isn’t a problem. You can use a combination of tinder and kindling to light your kiln-dried firewood, or you can invest in one of our natural fire starters. With that said, you shouldn’t use lighter fluid to light your kiln-dried firewood. Accelerants such as this are dangerous for several reasons. First, they can create a blazing fireball that burns your skin. Second, they produce toxic fumes that you’ll inadvertently inhale. For these reasons, it’s recommended that you use a natural method to start your fire.
Keep your fire burning long into the night by using premium kiln-dried firewood. Cutting Edge Firewood offers the finest quality kiln-dried firewood, which you can order by visiting our online store.
