Compare Firewood to other fuels


The Johannesburg Firewood Company are your 'turn to' people when the seasons start to change and the cooler evenings need some warming up. Not having to go out and find somewhere to buy firewood but rather having it delivered so you have it on hand is a convenience that has a few advantages, not least of which is staying indoors where its warm.


What makes firewood worth the price you pay?

  • Energy content - are you buying a soft or a hard wood? How long do you want your firewood to burn for? Soft woods will burn beautifully and fiercely but only for a short period, but a hard wood will produce a longer lasting flame, keeping you warmer for longer.
  • Location - Cities are becoming bigger, causing the wood sources to be further and further away from the market. Transport costs will have an impact on the price of firewood.
  • Piece size can also affect the cost of firewood, smaller bits and off cuts are generally cheaper because they are not as effective, their size causes them to burn out quickly. Often disregarded, these bits of wood are a good stepping stone between kindling and solid firewood.
  • The quantity purchased - Having to go out at night and track down some firewood will add unnecessarily to your vehicles fuel costs and you will probably end up paying more because the seller has a product which is in demand. Ordering a load of firewood and having it delivered to your home will save you time, money and a trip outside on a cold night.
