These natural fire starters can be used to light any fire: fireplace, insert, wood stove, barbecue and brazier. A single stick is enough to light a fire. The burning time is slow, from 8 to 10 minutes.

Use the top-down technique to light the fire. Place the large logs at the bottom of the firebox, then on top of them - in a perpendicular fashion - the medium-sized logs, the chestnut kindling and at the top a natural fire starter made of wood wool.

Choose a very dry wood such as oak, hornbeam or beech (hardwood species), certified NF, with a moisture content of less than 20% in order to obtain a good yield and take full advantage of the heat of the fire. This type of wood log high performance will emit very little ash and few fine particles. It also has the advantage of reducing the fouling of your heating appliances. You can also opt for compressed wood (compressed logs or densified wood), a compressed log is enough in the fireplace. These two categories of wood-energy carefully selected have a strong calorific value, offer good energy performance while remaining an ecological heating method.

The choice of your firewood is essential whether you have an open or closed fireplace. The type of heating appliance used will also have an impact on the energy efficiency. An open fireplace will obviously be less efficient.
