Cheers advice

Cheers – What matters?

The days are getting shorter, darker and colder – what could be better than being in front of you fireplaceto cuddle and enjoy the roaring and warming flames with a good book? But of course a fireplace is not just atmospheric. In times when heating costs continue to rise, heating with the fireplace is definitely a sensible alternative – at least for parts of the house or apartment.

Making the fire – or „cheering“ – is a little art in itself and each fireplace owner has his own tips and tricks on how the fire gets going quickly. The secret lies in the use of kindling , These are the small logs that make sure the big, solid logs burn well. But what should you look for before buying and how do you set that kindling the best one? We want to take a closer look today.

Cheers – where to buy?

If kindling If you want to buy, you have many options today. There are now kindling and lightereven seasonally in discounter markets to buy – which is always the question of quality. A good starting point for kindling But the big strength of building is and remains.

But of course he is the best contact in matters of wood, the specialized wood supplier in your area. And if you join the bonfires together firewood(which of course is offered in much larger containers) order, the firewood sellers often deliver to your home.

Cheap and fast it is also on the Internet. Of course it’s always one riskis to order something without having seen it before. However, since Anfeuerholz is quite cheap, the risk can be tolerated in this case.

What is important about the kindling?

The nuts and bolts – and this applies to both kindling and firewood – is the degree of drying of the wood. The more damp wood is, the harder it is to set fire, and there is also more smoke and shorter calorific values. Now this „problem“ with kindling is not necessarily serious, because the logs are so small that they usually dry much faster than thick logs.

Criteria that tell you at first glance that you should not buy firewood, are heavy soiling or even mold stains on the wood. If you see small black dots or „scales“, this may indicate a mold attack. Here is the motto: better keep your hands off it.

How is tempering wood used?
The small logs of Anfeuerholzes should help to bring the big logs as fast as possible to burn and thus ring the so-called burning phase. It usually two different variants are recommended: the cheering from above and the cheering from below. But which is the better variant?

When cheering from below must first in the middle of the Fireplacea small „tepee“ of cheeks be built. Below is a priming cube. The firewood is just like the Anfeuerholz draped around and now ignited the ignition cube. He fires first the Anfeuerholz whose flame then goes on the firewood. This method is not only the safest, but also the fastest. It takes about five minutes until the warming fire in the fireplace patters.

In the firing method from above, first the firewood logs are placed side by side in the fireplace. Then comes in the lattice-shaped crossed (like a cheese box pitch) the Anfeuerholz and on top of the ignition cube is placed. Although this method also works quite reliably, it takes much longer (about 20 minutes) for the fire to actually work its way through to the firewood logs.

You should pay attention to this when buying firewood:
– Clean
– mold-free
– Not discolored
– Uniform logs of the same size
