Calorific Value of Homefire Fuels


The calorific value (CV) is the total energy released as heat when a substance undergoes complete combustion with oxygen under standard conditions (Wikipedia, 2023).


We would argue that CV is not a completely reliable measure of the heat you feel, as there are other factors at play such as the size of the fuel (see article: "Why the size of solid fuel matters"), but we know many customers like to compare.


The table below gives the Gross Calorific Value (Dry Basis) in Kilojoules per kilogram:
