What makes HOT BRICKS™ better than traditional cordwood?
HOT BRICKS - Are an efficient, all natural, pressed wood brick developed as a cleaner, greener alternative to traditional firewood. We remove the bark and kiln dry the wood fiber to allow the heat created during burning to transfer directly into your home rather than going up your chimney. A well established HOT BRICK fire creates little visible smoke or creosote in your chimney and leaves one tenth the ash residue. More Importantly, HOT BRICKS reduce smoke pollution by 1/3 to 1/2 versus cord wood. HOT BRICKS are a responsible alternative because they burn Hotter and Cleaner than firewood.
Firewood- By comparison, well seasoned firewood has moisture content around 20% or more and contains up to 20% bark. While burning firewood, much of the heat is wasted evaporating the moisture. The bark has low BTU value and leaves a large ash residue and creates harmful smoke pollution. The high moisture content and the dirty bark combine to carry the particulate matter and impurities into the environment in the form of smoke pollution and creosote. HOT BRICKS are Smarter and Greener because they reduce harmful smoke pollution
HOT BRICKS deliver more heat to your home because we kiln dry our wood chips. The low-moisture content of our tightly compressed wood bricks creates a longer, hotter, more efficient fire. Unlike cordwood, HOT BRICKS do not waste heat evaporating the water trapped in the wood fiber. Instead, heat is immediately available to warm your home.
HOT BRICKS do not have any dirt, mud, mold, fungus, or bark. They do not harbor spiders, bugs, worms, or vermin. They burn with little visible smoke and do not leave creosote in your chimney or stains on your glass doors. They stack neatly in your house or garage. HOT BRICKS are cleaner and more convenient.
Using HOT BRICKS for home heating is better for the environment, more affordable than oil, and cleaner and hotter than cordwood. HOT BRICKS provide a more convenient, efficient, and responsible way to keep our homes warm in the wintertime.
HOT BRICKS are 100 percent natural, local, and renewable. The woodchips we use to make HOT BRICKS come from within a 50-mile radius of our plant in Waterbury, CT. Heating with HOT BRICKS is carbon neutral. HOT BRICKS are the environmentally smart, sustainable choice for home heating.
