Heat Logs – The Benefits

Heat logs are a great alternative to firewood or coal for heating your home this winter. But what exactly are heat logs and what are they made from? Heat logs are an eco-friendly form of fuel made from recycled sawdust and wood shavings that have been pressed together into a dense block called a briquette. Big K’s heat logs offer several benefits. Here we will look why these are such an efficient, clean and environmentally friendly winter fuel option.

The Benefits of Heat Logs


Heat logs are kind to the environment as they are completely carbon neutral. This is because the carbon released into the atmosphere when the heat log is lit matches the carbon which has been absorbed during the life-time of the wood, which makes heat logs a responsible fuel option for our future generations.

Big K's heat logs are also made from 100 per cent recycled or waste wood approved by the Forest Stewardship Council. FSC certified wood is timber produced from sustainable and well-managed forests, which makes heat logs a very green fuel alternative.

Not only that, but as Big K heat logs are made from wood with no other impurities or additives they can be disposed of in a way that will not harm the environment, which can only mean good news for our planet.

Clean Source of Fuel

Heat logs offer a clean alternative to seasoned firewood as they do not leave any residue on your fingers or clothing. They are also a good product to use as they don’t spit or spark, which means they are a very clean source of fuel and you don’t have to worry about sparks or embers falling out of the fireplace and burning holes in the rug or carpet.

Another reason why heat logs are hassle-free is that they leave very little soot or ash behind in the fireplace, so less time is spent cleaning-up afterwards.

Cost Effective

Heat logs work very efficiently to heat your home. How long each one will burn for depends on several factors including the sort of appliance you are using and the ventilation. However, as a general guide, Big K’s fire logs provide more than double the heat output to firewood logs.

The recycled wood used in Big K heat logs has been dried to lower the moisture content before it is compressed into briquettes, which means heat logs also burn longer than other fuel alternatives so they provide good value for money.

Easy to Use

As the wood has been dried before being processed into blocks, our heat logs are quick to light. This is great if you are pressed for time as heat logs are a good product for getting a fire started quickly to provide instant heat to a cold room on chilly evenings.

They are so easy to use, all you have to do is to take the product out of its packaging and put it on the fire and the flame will become hot very quickly. You can also use our heat logs in conjunction with kindling.

Big K heat logs also come in convenient pack sizes which are easy to store and stack, so they save on space. It is advisable to store them in a dry and well ventilated area, ideally indoors so they keep their low moisture content.

Where Can Heat Logs Be Burnt

Big K heat logs are sold for domestic and commercial use and are suitable for a wide range of appliances including wood burning stoves, multi-fuel stoves, boilers, open fires, fire pits, pizza ovens as well as outdoor chimineas and barbecues.
