Buying Firewood in Johannesburg

Johannesburg for all its technology still has many poeple who value the tradition and homeliness of a warm fireplace. Buying quality firewood is the first step to creating homeliness or even romance.

The closest many of us ever come to a good roaring fire is when we have a braai and gather with friends and family to cook or meal on the open fire. This is considered an art and is usually left to those with experience.

However in what appears to be a throwback to a time where the pace of life was less rushed more people are wanting a warm wood fire, which can only mean one thing: A cosy home this winter.

What kind of fireplace suits you

Whether the fireplace was part of the original structure and been out into use of late or whether an brand new fireplace has been installed, fire is becoming one of the more popular methods of heating a room or a home.

The traditional wood burning fireplace

Earlier and more traditional homes were all built with a fireplace, sometimes two; one in the kitchen for cooking and one in a main room for heating. As part of the original design these fireplaces were built with their specific purpose in mind and a chimney was built in to accommodate the smoke created by the burning of firewood.

These types of fireplaces were surrounded with a brick or stone border and the floor in front of the fireplace would usually be of a similar material, thus preventing sparks and flying as from causing damage and also being easy to clean.

Modern and freestanding fireplaces

A modern or free standing fireplace will usually be made from steel and have a fireproof glass door to prevent sparks and ash from damaging the surroundings. The floor surrounding the modern fireplace will be of a non-flammable nature and usually a substance that is easy to clean should any as from the burnt firewood be spilled

These fireplaces are often referred to as a wood-stove, mostly as a nod to their original purpose.

Whichever fireplace you have in your home, using the correct fuel is important, and in order to get the most out of your fire, a good quality well seasoned firewood is necessary.
