Firewood/Heating costs

Hungary : British Expat Discussion Forum - britishexpats.com
In my second winter now and still on something of a learning curve with my logburner as regards which fuel is most econimcal and/or best.

Like a lot of things I'm surprised how expensive firewood "tuzifa" is in Hungary, I naively thought given the abundence of trees and the Hungarian preponderence for burning timber to keep warm it would be cheap!

I've used a mixture of un-cut logs, cut and quartered logs and am now trialling compressed wood bricks, having also tried lignite. Leaving aside the uncut logs (which are a lot of work cutting, chopping and handling) it works out roughly the same at around £200 per month in the heating season. The raw logs are obviously cheaper but a hell of a lot of work and I would need to build a stock up to give me time to achieve seasoned wood.

I have a modern logburner supplying six radiators to heat around 85 - 90 square metres. Hot water is supplied from the usual electric boiler everyone has over here.

So how do my figures compare with what others are using, are there cheaper supplies of firewood to be found and are you all using wood rather than "brikettes"?
