Moisture Meter


Use the handy Valiant Moisture meter to ensure you get the best burn from your fuel. Our newest model not only has a backlight screen to illuminate the reading but the built-in colour change technology indicates the moisture level of the firewood. It’s an essential tool for any fireplace owner!

How does the moisture meter work?

Fuel quality is the single most important aspect of making a successful fire. To burn effectively the moisture content of firewood needs to be less than 20%, whether it’s being used in an open fire or a stove. Freshly felled timber can have a moisture content of between 30% and 60%, which when burnt can cause dangerous creosote build-up in chimneys.

Using a moisture meter is a great way to check whether your wood will give you a safe and efficient burn, or if it needs further seasoning. The screen will glow green if your fuel contains less than 20% moisture, indicating that it’s ready to go.

The new Valiant moisture meter can also be used in timber, floors and buildings in order to detect and measure moisture content.

surprisingly useful

This coupled up with a fan and stove thermometer are the wood burner must haves!

Great to deal with

I did a lot of research on getting a stove for my garage conversion
I have a Clearview 750 in my lounge which is excellent and would have bought another to replace the ageing Hunter in the conversion
The Stovefitters website is a treasure trove of useful information. It was read thoroughly and I was much attracted by review and endorsement of the stove I bought
It was the proprietors favourite which he installed in his Cornish holiday home
I will leave you to guess which stove I bought but it is superb
I also had a moisture meter which gives a very good indication of the state of the logs
