Advantages of buying firewood in spring and summer

Why should you buy firewood in spring and summer?

It is true that, now that the good weather is arriving in many parts of Europe, you may think that the next cold season is still far away and… it is totally normal!

Thanks to today’s post, you will discover why you should think now about buying firewood for next winter and all the advantages you can find if you make your fuel purchase in spring and summer …. Pay attention!

Lower prices

One of the biggest advantages of buying firewood this spring-summer season is that prices are usually lower than during the cold months. This is because firewood suppliers tend to have lower demand, which allows them to offer lower prices to attract buyers.

In addition, suppliers often offer discounts to encourage early firewood purchases.

Increased availability

Another advantage is that there is greater availability of firewood. Suppliers often have more time and resources to cut, dry and package firewood during the spring and summer. This translates into a greater supply and availability of all types of firewood.

Many suppliers tend to run out of supply during the winter, which can lead to delivery delays and problems getting the amount of firewood you need. By purchasing firewood in the spring or summer, you can ensure that you will have enough firewood available for the entire winter and avoid any delays or shortage problems.

Better quality firewood

Making your firewood purchase at these times of the year can also mean better quality firewood. During the warmer months of the year, wood has more time to dry and cure properly, which improves its quality and reduces moisture content. Dry seasoned firewood burns better and generates less waste, you can read more information about this type of fuel here.

In addition, during the cold season, demand for firewood is higher and many suppliers may be forced to cut and package firewood in a hurry to meet their demand. This can lead to firewood that is not sufficiently dry or well seasoned.

Get ready for winter

Stocking up before winter is one way to ensure you’ll have enough fuel to keep your home warm, and at a more affordable price, too.

In addition, buying firewood early also allows you time to prepare for the cold season in general. You can check and clean your fireplace or wood stove, make sure you have enough tools for cutting and transporting firewood, and prepare a suitable and safe place to store firewood.

Buying firewood in spring-summer and its positive impact on the environment

Buying firewood in the spring and summer can have a positive environmental impact compared to buying firewood in the colder months of the year. This is because, by buying firewood early, you are supporting local firewood suppliers and contributing to their economic sustainability. In addition, by buying firewood from local suppliers, you reduce the amount of fossil fuels used in transporting the firewood to your home, which in turn reduces your carbon footprint.

When you buy firewood in winter, trucks or even airplanes may be used to transport the firewood, which can create a significant carbon footprint. In addition, firewood is often imported from other countries, which can also have an impact on the environment due to transportation costs and the possibility of unsustainable logging in the country of origin.

On the other hand, with early purchasing, firewood is more likely to come from local suppliers and sustainably managed forests in your area. By choosing a local supplier, you are reducing the distance firewood has to travel to reach your home, which in turn reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

In addition, using a wood stove or fireplace to heat your home instead of relying on fossil fuels can also have a positive impact on the environment. Burning wood emits carbon dioxide, but the cutting and burning of wood can be considered carbon neutral if it is sustainably managed and the cut wood is replaced with new trees. In addition, if you choose firewood from waste or local forests, you are reducing the amount of wood that ends up in landfills and helping to maintain healthy forests.

Tips for storing firewood

Once you have purchased your firewood, it is important to store it properly to maintain its quality and avoid moisture and pest problems. Here are some useful tips:

  • Store in a dry place: Firewood should be stored in a dry place protected from rain and snow. If you don’t have a covered space, consider using a tarp or plastic cover to protect firewood from moisture.
  • Allow space for air circulation: It is important that firewood has enough space for air circulation. Stack firewood on shelves or racks and leave space between stacks to allow air to circulate. This will also help prevent moisture buildup and pest growth.
  • Use dry wood: Make sure the firewood you are storing is dry. Wet firewood is harder to burn and produces more smoke, which can lead to indoor air quality problems in your home. In addition, damp wood is more prone to mold and pest buildup. Learn more about the problems caused by damp firewood by clicking here.
