Hot summer days are here! Sitting under a tree with a good book and a refreshing glass of lemonade is more appealing than the thought of processing firewood. Cutting and stacking firewood is a hot, time consuming, back breaking job. If cutting and splitting firewood has become more of a drudgery then something you enjoy, consider using BIO BLOCKS this year. BIO BLOCKS are used as an alternative to firewood in fireplaces, inserts, or wood stoves. It is becoming a popular choice for people who value a warm, cozy home. They have discovered a warm home is possible to achieve without much effort by burning compressed sawdust blocks.

Some consumers burn ONLY BIO BLOCKS and never use firewood. Others choose to burn a combination of BIO BLOCKS and firewood if they still enjoy cutting wood.

Wood usually takes 6 months to season to 20% moisture content. The challenge for many people is getting wood cut in time to allow this to happen. When wood is not seasoned well, there is greater concern for creosote build-up in chimneys, which can cause chimney fires.  BIO BLOCKS have an 8% moisture content. This provides a hot, clean burn, with very little ash.

Even though the days are warm and beautiful, now is the best time to stock up on BIO BLOCKS, while they are readily available. Keep in mind BIO BLOCKS need to be stored inside. BIO BLOCKS are made of 100% kiln-dried sawdust. There is no need to worry about insects coming in your house!

This is also a good time of year to have your chimney cleaned and inspected. Once you’re done with that, and stocked up on BIO BLOCKS, you can grab that good book and refreshing glass of lemonade. Enjoy the rest of the summer!
