With these green wet wood burning directly, and using appropriate dry or compared to after 'processed' wood, efficiency is lower, the safety is lower. According to the usual ecological department, according to data from the wood should contain 20% or less of the water. And once after using wet wood, can cause the following effects: A. Efficiency decreases the wet wood combustion efficiency is lower than the dry wood burning efficiency, because the water heated to steam will lose a lot of energy. About 1200 BTU (evaporation a pound of waste water British thermal unit) 。 , by contrast, according to the university of Missouri extension, a pound of containing 20% moisture content of wood is only about 7000 BTU can provide heat.

B。 Processing wood this need in the proper season we cut down the new wood, the stored in the location of the ground and cover at least six months. Too much density hardwood takes a year or longer to effectively adjust processing. Put the wet wood on the back of the storage area or the bottom of the heap, the wood to make sure that you first use a qualified air drying processing of wood to act as the fuel wood fireplace.
