THE BENEFITS OF WOOD BURNING
All Lotus stoves and fires are designed for wood burning only. Wood is an environmentally friendly fuel; when burnt, the carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is approximately the same as that absorbed by the tree during growth. It is also a renewable resource, particularly when derived from plantations and cultivated woodland. For optimum results, we recommend logs should be seasoned for 2 years or more to achieve a moisture content below 20%.
This will not only give twice the output of freshly felled timber but will also help to avoid a build up of tar in your flue. Furthermore, if you can obtain hardwood logs this is better still, as they will have a greatly increased calorific value compared to softwoods.
