For instance, take of cord of well dried Pinyon Pine that consist of about 19.0 million BTU’s per cord, it would take 208 gallons of propane or 19,000 cu. ft. of natural gas to be equal. 208 gallons of Propane at 1.80 per gallon would cost $375.00, 1 cord of Pinyon Pine delivered is $200.00. Total saving form burning 1 cord of wood $175.00.
Firewood Storage & Seasoning
Place your firewood rack 20 to 25 feet from your home or any building if possible. Firewood attracts many insects such as ants and
termites. Keeping a proper distance from any structures will keep the insects from entering your home. A log rack should be designed to
keep your firewood off the ground. When firewood sits on the ground it takes longer to season and it tends to attract mice and snakes
looking for a home. Stack your firewood allowing air to circulate around the logs but most of the moisture will be drawn from the cut ends
verses the split sides. It is not recommended to cover your firewood during the seasoning, this can trap moisture in and will delay the drying
time and could cause mold and fungus to grow. Once your firewood is seasoned cover the top layers during fall rains and winter snow. This
will allow you to grab dry wood from the top while air circulates through the rest of your firewood.
Seasoned firewood will have checks and cracks and weigh much less than fresh cut firewood. Over 50% of the weight in fresh cut wood is
moisture. Seasoning of firewood is important for several reasons. When firewood is burned any excess moisture has to be “cooked” out of
the wood. This excess moisture escapes as smoke. If your fireplace doesn’t draft very well the smoke could come back into your room.
Burning firewood that isn’t seasoned uses all the heat from the fire to “cook” out the excess moisture and doesn’t produce heat for your
home. Seasoned wood will ignite and burn much easier and cause fewer problems with condensation and creosote.
It is best to remove the bark from your firewood before burning for several reasons. Most of the creosote is contained in the bark and also
most of the ash comes from the bark. This is one of the reasons why locally Aspen is desired because it’s thin bark it burns clean and leaves little ash while Ponderosa Pines with their thick bark leave more ash and creosote. Generally if your chimney will stay cleaner and you’ll have less ash to cleanup afterwards.
