Why Heat Logs are Environmentally Friendly and Efficient

During the winter or on a cold night, you need a way to keep your home warm. The use of heat logs is a popular way of heating your home. Heat logs are not directly created from trees but instead, they are created from waste products of factories and saw mills which make them a very environmentally friendly was of keeping your home warm.

If you think about it, they also promote efficiency. Instead of factories and saw mills throwing away their waste products, they use it to create heat logs so no additional trees need to be felled just to make fuel. Here is a prime example of what I mean. In order to make furniture, trees are felled but during the manufacturing process, a large amount of saw dust and off-cuts are produced. Instead of these being thrown away, they are used to create heat logs. Quite efficient!

Many people believe that because heat logs are made from sawdust and off-cuts, they are an inferior heat product. This however is a common misconception. The fact is that heat logs ignite much more easily than the normal logs, they burn longer and they give out more heat because the entire heat log burns. Other heat products such as coal and ordinary logs do not burn completely; therefore, they leave a large amount of waste product in your burner.

Heat logs can be used in boilers, cookers, stove and open fires. Apart from the fact that they are environmentally friendly, heat logs have other benefits. They have a low moisture content which makes them smoke free. They are cleaner and drier than the normal logs and they are easier to handle. You do not have to worry about sparks and spits.

So you no longer need to rely on fossil fuels and the trees no longer need to be chopped down just for you to have a way to keep your house warm during the cold nights. You don't have to worry about tar clogging up your chimney. Heat logs are here to stay. They are a fantastic product and promote recycling instead of throwing away waste products.
