Firewood and what’s in a BTU

Think of BTU (British Thermal Unit) as heat output. The term BTU is used to describe the heat value (energy content) of fuels, and also to describe the power of heating systems.

There is only so much fuel energy in a piece of firewood – although a piece of wood can burn for over 12 hours with very minimal heat output, the smartest way to burn firewood is efficiently. Pacific Energy’s catalytic-free secondary burn system is the best way to get the most out of every piece of firewood; our heat output to burn time ratio is the proven way to maximize heating your home with wood in an efficient and environmentally sustainable way.
