What Fuel Can I Burn on a Contemporary Log Burner?

Modern log burners are predominantly designed to burn wood thanks to their tall fireboxes which allow tall pieces of firewood. Some models have the option of a coal grate for burning smokeless fuel which can be a handy alternative.

Firewood in fire

We recommend burning most types of hardwood on your wood burner, logs like birch, beech, oak and elm offer long burn times with great heat output. We’d advise that you avoid burning wood with a high resin content and ensure that your firewood is seasoned with less than 20% moisture content. You could look to purchase a moisture meter if you are ever unsure about the suitability of the firewood you have purchased.
