What do you know about hardwood heat logs? Where can you buy heat logs? How can Big K heat logs warm your spirits this winter? It’s time to illuminate the path to heat log happiness. Let’s do this!

 

What do you know about heat logs?

We’re sure you’ve seen all kinds of heat log brands on your daily travels. There’s heat logs from Lidl, heat logs from Tesco, Fuel Express have their own heat logs, Zip are at it, Homefire is big in the heat log game and let’s not forget Hotties heat logs and Lekto’s hardwood heat logs. Phew that was exhausting. The rhetorical point we are making here is that, with so much choice out there, it can be hard to find the right heat log for you. We’re not here to tell you about other brands: you can do the research yourself. We’re here to tell you about Big K Heat Logs and exactly why they are little logs of loveliness. Before we get into the breakdown, let’s refresh our minds on all things heat logs.

 

What are heat logs?

Heat logs are basically manufactured ‘logs’ that are created using specific processes. Think less bearded man, axe and tree, and more finely chopped material, machine and compression. Basically we take saw dust or other biomass options, place them in a mould and compress the mixture to about 1000kg/m3. The key lies in the compression. You see the higher the compression, the lower the internal moisture levels per log – as water is extracted during the compaction process. When all is said and done, heat logs usually have an internal moisture level between 5 to 10%.  This utopia of dryness delivers a better and more efficient burn thanks to higher calorific value per log.

 

The magic of heat log moulds

The mould acts like an enforcer of consistency, in the sense that it gives each log the same uniform shape and density. Think replicated consistency and quality here people. All these elements come together to give you more control of your burn, as the burn beviour of each log is similar and predictable. Heat logs are definitely for the control freaks!
