Our easy to use moisture meter will detect the level of moisture in the wood that you are planning on burning in your wood stove.
Burning wood with too high a moisture level can cause the glass to dirty and the chimney to become blocked.
Stoves are designed and then tested so as to rate their performance.
When purchasing a stove it is important to choose the size and output of the stove to match the room but it is also important to know that the performance will be subject to the chimney and fuel being in line with manufacturers recommendations.
Often when customers complain about their stove not meeting their expectation it is due to the moisture levels in the wood.
It is safer to burn wood with the correct moisture content as it inhibits a build-up of tar which is a common cause of chimney fires.
