Measuring firewood moisture content

It is important when using a wood burning stove that you use dry firewood below 20% moisture content. Checking firewood moisture content can be done quickly and easily with a moisture meter.

Always check your appliance manufacturer’s instructions for specific guidance for your appliance.

Woodsure Auditors use a Valiant moisture meter. You can purchase these for around £20 either online or via a local DIY store. You can also contact the Woodsure team and order a meter with us directly.

Take a look at our handy video demonstrating how to correctly check firewood moisture content using a (pin) moisture meter.
