OUR FIRE LOGS AND FIRE BRICKS ARE BETTER THAN CORDWOOD
Create more heat
Because of our careful drying process, Bear Bricks are twice as dry which makes them burn hotter than seasoned cordwood. Air dried (seasoned) cordwood has varying moisture levels, depending on species of wood, etc., and can average roughly 20% moisture content. Bear Bricks’ consistently low moisture content of 9%, stable size and uniform density ensures a dependable amount of heat throughout the burning process and the winter season. Independent tests* report that room temperatures at 2′ from the stove are over 20° hotter when burning Bear Bricks than cordwood.
Bear Bricks are made from only 100% clean renewable wood making particulate emissions into the air 92% lower than cordwood. And because they are a manufactured product, Bear Bricks do not contain bark or dirt, and they do not carry insects into your home like cordwood.
Easier to use
Bear Bricks come packaged in tidy bundles that stack and store more efficiently than cordwood. Because we do the work for you, Bear Bricks do not require cutting, splitting and time to season. Just remove the wrapper and enjoy the heat. Bear bricks come in large and small bricks, so you can choose the size that works best for you.
