How to Use Eco Heat Logs

Eco heat logs, also known as wood briquettes, offer a sustainable and efficient heating solution for various applications, from heating your home to cooking food on the barbecue. 

These products are becoming increasingly popular as a sustainable alternative to traditional firewood.

Made from 100% compressed willow wood fibres with no fillers, chemicals or additives, our eco heat logs offer a longer burn time and higher heat output than ordinary logs of the same size – without the smoke or fumes!

What’s more, our heat logs are carbon neutral since the woodchip is sustainably sourced from locally grown and coppiced willow crops across the UK.

The versatility of eco heat logs extends beyond heating your home. They’re ideal for various applications, including:

  • Multifuel Stoves: Provide reliable warmth and comfort in your home’s multifuel stove, ensuring a consistent and efficient burn.
  • Campfires: Enhance your outdoor adventures with the cosy warmth of a campfire fuelled by eco heat logs, perfect for chilly evenings under the stars.
  • Fire Pits: Create a welcoming ambience in your garden with a fire pit fuelled by eco heat logs, perfect for entertaining guests or relaxing with loved ones.
  • Barbecues: Upgrade your outdoor cooking experience with the light, smoky flavour imparted by willow wood briquettes, ideal for grilling delicious meals on your barbecue.
  • Wood-Fired Hot Tubs: Enjoy a luxurious soak in your wood-fired hot tub, heated by eco heat logs for a truly relaxing and eco-friendly experience.


But that’s not all! You can also use heat logs for wood-burning cookers, pizza ovens, and biomass log boilers. 

Using Your Eco Heat Logs

Using our eco heat logs couldn’t be easier! 

Here’s how to make the most of your wood briquettes and ensure optimal performance and safety every time…

  1. Open the airflow fully to ensure proper ventilation.
  2. Place 1-2 wood firelighters in the middle of the grate and build a ‘jenga’ or ‘tent’ structure with kindling on top.
  3. Light the firelighter(s) and close the door for a few minutes until the fire is properly established.
  4. Once the fire is established, add 1-3 eco heat logs to steadily build your fire.
  5. Adjust the airflow settings for heat efficiency as per your stove manufacturer’s instructions.
  6. Refuel as required, ensuring not to overload your appliance and maintaining proper ventilation for safe and efficient burning.

Top Tips for Using Eco Heat Logs

Here are some additional tips to ensure the best results when using heat logs from Eco Crops:

  • Start with just 1 eco heat log until you’re familiar with its performance – they burn much hotter than traditional firewood!
  • Ensure the eco heat logs do not touch the glass of your stove, and the door is properly closed for safety.
  • Maintain proper ventilation at all times for safe and efficient burning.
  • Keep your ash tray clear and chimney clean for optimal performance and a smoke-free burn.

Heat Release Time

The heat release time of our eco heat logs varies depending on several factors, including air inflow settings, the number of logs loaded, outside temperature, and appliance size. 

Typically, one eco heat log can provide warmth for 1-3+ hours, but experimentation is key to finding the ideal setting for your appliance. Building a bed of ash underneath can extend the burn time, making your eco heat logs last longer into the night.



Eco heat logs offer a convenient, eco-friendly, and efficient heating solution for both indoor and outdoor use. By following these simple tips and guidelines, you can enjoy the full benefits of our heat logs while reducing your carbon footprint!
