Hotties Heat Logs
Hotties Heat Logs are versatile, clean, suitable for all wood burning appliances and unlike other heat logs, they don’t expand or crumble making them highly consistent and reliable.
Hotties Heat Logs are manufactured firewood logs created from sawdust, wood chips and similar renewable raw materials sourced from the UK, which are then highly compressed into logs.
They’re also extremely hot! This is down to their low moisture content (below 5%) which means they can generate up to three times the heat of conventional wooden logs.
Give them a try and you won’t look back!

What is a heat log?
How good are heat logs?Good quality heat logs are extremely efficient and generate an incredible amount of heat. They contain very little moisture so they leave your appliance clean with minimal ash. You can use heat logs on their own or complement your existing firewood supply.
How long do heat logs burn for?One of our heat logs will burn for approximately 60-90 minutes.
Can you burn heat logs in a wood burning stove?Heat logs are the perfect wood fuel for your wood burning stove. They’re the perfect size (which is consistent every time, unlike logs) easy to handle and no problem to stack.
Are briquettes better than logs?Good quality briquettes are a fantastic alternative to logs and have a number of advantages, the most important one being they offer more heat output. A poor quality briquette might crumble, not offer as much heat and leave a lot of ash behind.
How to light heat logsAdd approximately 6-8 sticks of good quality kindling and light using a firelighter. Once the kindling has taken, add a couple of heat logs with a pair of heatproof gloves. Enjoy the heat!
Why use heat logs instead of firewood?Good quality heat logs offer more heat for less money and they’re always the same size, making them much more practical to use. The raw materials are natural wood waste making them a more eco-friendly option.
How should I store heat logs?Heat logs must be stored in a dry area (preferably indoors) and care must be taken to avoid moisture getting into the packet, particularly if being stored in a garage. If they are being stored somewhere like a garage, they should be stored off the ground.
