How to Select the Right Type of Firewood for Your Perth Home

Perth is one of the most beautiful cities in Australia, and its residents have the luxury of enjoying warm and cozy nights indoors in the colder months. An excellent way to keep the house comfortable is to light a fire, and nothing beats a wood fire for its ability to capture and reflect light, adding character to any room.





Despite the nationwide shortage of firewood this winter, some suppliers may still have limited stock available, so it would be wise to have a good idea of which type will best meet your needs. Unfortunately, many people choose wood that’s not suitable for their fireplace and, thus, fail to make the most of their wood-burning experience.


Mixed Jarrah Firewood

Mixed Jarrah firewood is one of the most popular types of firewood for homes in the Perth metro area. It is affordable and has a low smoke output and excellent burning qualities. Jarrah is made up of eucalyptus and is comprised of both seasoned and green timber. The eucalyptus has a pleasant smell and provides a steady, long-burning fire that will warm up your house quickly and effectively.


The downside to mixed Jarrah firewood is that it can combust quickly if not heated regularly, and it can create quite a bit of smoke. To prevent this, you should ensure that you are buying quality wood that has been seasoned for at least six months and that the chunks of wood are relatively small and easy to arrange.


Mill Ends Firewood

Mill Ends firewood is a relatively new type of firewood available in Perth. It is logs that have been cut and milled to a standard length and size so they are uniform and easy to stack and light. These logs are normally much larger than regular firewood, and they can be used to create a larger fire. Because of the larger logs, less is required to get a fire started, and they burn for longer periods of time than mixed Jarrah firewood.


The downside to Mill Ends firewood is that it can create quite a bit of smoke, so you should be aware of how it will affect your air quality before buying. Mill Ends firewood is more expensive than regular firewood, so you should factor that in when deciding which type of wood to use in your home.


Things to Consider When Choosing the Right Firewood

When selecting the right type of firewood for your home in Perth, there are a few things to consider. Firstly, make sure that you choose a type of wood that is suitable for your particular fireplace or stove. Some woods are not suitable for open fireplaces as they create too much smoke. Secondly, make sure that the wood you choose is dry and seasoned. Dry wood will burn slower and safer and will provide more heat from the fire. Finally, consider the size of the logs that you are selecting. Logs should be relatively small and easy to arrange in the fireplace and should be thick enough that they won’t burn through quickly.
