Top tips for getting warm and toastie

One Lonely Log

It is always better to put two or three logs on your fire at any one time, not only will it give you a great feel of warmth and ambience, there is a little science behind it too.

One single log in a fireplace grate will more than likely die out. The reason for this is that the burning of the wood log fibres happens in stages, and one single log is not able to keep the process or momentum of burning going by itself. More logs have a combined bigger burning surface, which in turn create air and flame turbulence that keeps the burning process going.

That is why at the end of the evening, that last log in the grate just sits there, charred and lonely.
