Every time I get my fireplace cleaned, they say the same thing. That “real wood” is better than the firelogs. That real wood leaves less creosote that needs to be cleaned from the flue. But I cannot see how that makes any sense.
- When I use firelogs, I will use 2, maybe 3. When I use real wood, I am always refilling it with more wood to burn. Probably a dozen pieces of wood.
- While trying to research it, I found this link. http://www.science20.com/science_mo...ood_fires_whats_right_choice_cozy_winter_fire. Assuming Total Particles (PM) is what is leftover in the flue, you can clearly see it is significantly lower for firelogs than cordwood.
