4 Ways That A Log Splitter Can Benefit Your Home

March 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 143

It's almost that time of year again - when the first snowflakes start to fall on the ski slopes and bitter winds chase us to our destinations, we know that it's time to start the fires and turn on the heaters. Winter has finally arrived. Have you ever thought how a log splitter could benefit your home during the cooler months of the year? It could be just the purchase you have been waiting for.

1. Log Size

One thing that a log splitter is able to effortlessly achieve and that is near impossible to do by hand is ensuring a consistent log size. This will make your woods much easier to store, as it will all stack into your shed nice and evenly. On top of this, the wood will burn much better in your fireplace and the logs will better fit in around each other.

2. Money

During winter, our energy bills tend to soar because our heaters are turned on for most of the day and night. If you have a wood heater, however, your log splitter can help you to cut these bills down by hundreds and even thousands of dollars. In all reality, you will probably find that after one cold season your splitter has effectively paid for itself in the savings that you will make.

3. Time

If you have a wood heater in your home, you'll know that chopping up enough logs to get you through the day and most of the night by hand can take hours. With a log splitter, however, you can cut up wood in a fraction of the time that you used to. Not only will this make it easier to increase your wood stores, it will allow you to cut up a few days worth of logs at a time (instead of doing it day by day).

4. Safety

Most log splitters will come fully equipped with safety features that make the risk of harm to the user almost obsolete. Cutting up firewood by hand can be a highly dangerous task, as hands and feet are constantly getting perilously close to the sharp wedge of your axe. Whilst this is not to say that a log splitter poses no risk, it is definitely much less than that of cutting manually.

If you want to spend this year in a toasty warm, hassle free environment, then a well-chosen log splitter is definitely the tool for you. Not only will you be able to cut up your weeks supply in a day (or even a few hours), it won't be long before you notice the savings in your energy and gas bills.
