Hotties Heat Logs vs. other fuels
Hotties Heat Logs are better for the environment than other household fuels.
The following page outlines how Hotties Heat Logs offer great value for money when compared to traditional firewood and alternative fuels. Hotties Heat Logs are also better for the environment thanks to a moisture content of less than 5%, so you’re not paying for water which, when burned, has a negative impact on air quality.
