Fireplace - Fuel Types use to burn in it
|Wood - Wood is certainly the most
common fuel for Fireplace or Stove. Wood is usually the most
readily available fuel and can be the least expensive. If you have access
to standing wood (trees), you can stockpile your wood supply
inexpensively. Bone dry, wood has approximately 8600 BTU's per pound.
|Coal - Coal can be used as a fuel
for Fireplace or stove. Before attempting to burn coal, make
sure your Fireplace or stove is properly designed for coal burning.
|Compressed wood logs - Compressed
wood logs are made by "compressing" or "densifying" wood chips or coarse
sawdust. These logs use no binders and are held together by the pressure
exerted upon them during manufacturing. Compressed wood logs have a very
dry, wood like appearance. Make a nice choice for Fireplace or
|Wood wax logs - Wood wax logs are
made by molding sawdust into log like form and adding combustible binders
such as wax or paraffin. Because of the wax content these logs have a BTU
rating of approximately 15,000 BTU per pound, much higher than cordwood.
Will make your Fireplace or stove really hot...
|Wood pellets - Wood pellets are
made by compressing small wood chips, shells of nuts or material like the
pits of cherries into pellets. The process here is the same as for
compressed wood logs. Because the pellets are so very dry there is more
heat available for heating your home.
|Fuel Gas - Gas hearth appliances
may be fueled with either natural gas or propane. Natural gas, where
available, is supplied through pipelines to individual homes.
