Unlock the Magic of Kiln Dried Logs

There's something undeniably magical about soaking in the warmth of a hot tub, enveloped by the soothing embrace of bubbling water. Whether it's an evening under the stars or a lively gathering with loved ones, a hot tub offers a sanctuary of relaxation and rejuvenation. At Cotswold Eco Tubs, we believe in enjoying this experience to the fullest, which is why we thought it might be useful to introduce you to the benefits of kiln dried logs.

What is Kiln Dried Wood?

Kiln dried wood is precisely what its name suggests: wood that has been dried in a controlled environment, typically a kiln, to reduce its moisture content. During the kiln drying process, the wood is heated to specific temperatures, allowing moisture to evaporate efficiently. This meticulous drying method results in logs with a moisture content of around 10-20%, significantly lower than air-dried or seasoned wood.

The Benefits of Kiln Dried Logs

1. Consistent Performance: One of the most significant advantages of kiln dried logs is their consistent burn rate and heat output. With a lower moisture content, these logs ignite easily and burn more efficiently, providing a steady and reliable source of heat for your hot tub.

2. Cleaner Burning: Kiln dried logs produce minimal smoke and emissions compared to their counterparts. The lower moisture content means less water vapor is released during combustion, resulting in a cleaner and more environmentally friendly burn.

3. Reduced Residue: Say goodbye to excessive ash and residue! Kiln dried logs leave behind minimal debris, making maintenance and cleanup a breeze. You'll spend less time tending to the fire and more time enjoying your hot tub retreat.

4. Longer Burning Time: Due to their superior combustion properties, kiln dried logs offer an extended burning time compared to wet or unseasoned wood. This means fewer interruptions to refuel the fire, allowing you to relax and unwind without constant maintenance.

5. Enhanced Aromas: Kiln dried logs impart delightful aromas as they burn, enriching your hot tub experience with the natural scents of wood. Whether it's the sweet fragrance of birch or the earthy notes of oak, each wood type adds its unique allure to the ambience.

Different Woods, Different Burns

Not all woods are created equal when it comes to burning characteristics. Here's a glimpse into how various wood types differ:

1. Birch: Known for its bright flames and sweet aroma, birch burns hot and fast, making it an excellent choice for quick heating and cosy fires.

2. Oak: Renowned for its dense and long-lasting burn, oak emits a steady heat that lasts for hours, perfect for extended soaks in the hot tub.

3. Ash: With its low moisture content and steady burn, ash produces minimal smoke and ash, making it an ideal option for clean and efficient combustion.

4. Maple: Offering a moderate burn and pleasant fragrance, maple wood adds a subtle sweetness to the air while providing consistent heat for your hot tub oasis.

We understand the importance of quality fuel for an exceptional hot tub experience.
