    Frequently Asked Questions About Lekto Kiln Dried Birch Logs

    What is the burning time of Kiln-Dried Birch Logs?

    Birch logs have longer burn times than most types of firewood. Precise times cannot be estimated as, being a natural product, each log has a unique diameter, composition, and density.

    Where can I use Lekto Kiln Dried Birch Logs?

    Lekto kiln-dried firewood logs are perfect for log burners and wood stoves, but they can be used in any scenario where you’d use regular firewood.

    What is the moisture content of Lekto Kiln Dried Birch Logs?

    Lekto’s kiln-dried firewood products are dried to a moisture level of under 20%.

    What is the size of each Kiln Dried Birch Log?

    Each log is exactly 25 centimetres long. As the logs are a natural product, their radius will vary from log to log, but the length will always be the same.

    How should I store Kiln Dried Birch Logs?

    For optimal performance, kiln-dried birch logs should be stored in a dry place that has at least some air circulation. If you plan on storing your logs outside, it’s best to bring them indoors for at least a few days before burning them.

    Where Does Lekto Source Its Firewood?

    Lekto’s Kiln-Dried Birch Logs come from sustainably managed forests. We only work with forest owners who have a proven track record of caring for the environment. This helps ensure that our products do not contribute to deforestation.

    What is the weight of each box?

    Each box has a volume of 22 litres and weighs between 8 and 10 kilograms. Keep in mind that, due to their low moisture content, kiln dried logs weigh less than regular firewood.

    Can I use Kiln Dried Birch Logs for decoration?

    Absolutely. Kiln-dried birch logs are one hundred percent safe to use as decoration. They are a perfect way to make your home look cosier and more hygge. Other Lekto products often purchased for decoration are our Natural Firelighters and Swedish Torch Logs.

    How many birch logs are in one box? 

    Kiln-Dried Birch Logs are a natural product and thus vary in width. Because of this, firewood is usually measured by volume, not the amount of logs in a box. Each box contains 22 litres of firewood.

    How long will one box of Kiln-Dried Birch Logs last me?

    There is no universal answer to this question. It all depends on the temperature, the size of your house, the quality of its insulation, the climate of the part of the country you live in, and the amount of wood stoves you have. On average, a UK household can expect to require between 1 and 3 crates (1.49m3) of firewood per heating season.
