Why You Should Use Kindling
Darker nights and cooler temperatures bring to mind the image of a toasty fire that heats both hearth and home, but a strong fire with good heat output doesn’t just happen. You need to gradually build one. Think of building a fire as a “recipe” composed of a series of ingredients that are added in steps.
The term kindling may be confusing. Kindling refers to small pieces of wood the size of twigs or branches that are easily combustible. Generally, they are cut from larger logs into smaller pieces. Good kindling has been dried to a level that ensures maximum ignition.
Think of kindling as an interim element. The fact is, large pieces of wood don’t catch fire easily. They need help to get them burning. Kindling is added to a wood stove or fireplace after first lighting tinder, light and dry material like newspaper. After the tinder ignites, kindling is added to the flames. Kindling fills the interval between first starting a flame and moving on to adding larger logs that feed the fire.
Kindling is an important and cost-effective way to build a fire that burns strong with maximum output and a minimum of smoke. Purchasing kindling from a reputable company such as The Firewood Centre ensures that the kindling is free of paint or finishes that can impair and damage chimneys and wood stoves.
