If you are considering construction of renovation, the first and most important decision is choosing a reliable contractor, which has proper professional knowledge. We offer or our help in this so that you can avoid experiencing the horror stories you heard about from others, because construction/renovation should be fun instead of a burden.

How Should We Choose Contractor?

You have surely heard about the case when after choosing a supposedly inexpensive workman, the client had to pay double or more at the end of the works. Or the one when the finished work had to be redone by another contractor because the first version turned out to be terrible?

You must have known about the handyman who had to be observed 24/7 by the client in order to supervise his work, fearing a dissatisfactory outcome. Everybody wants to save money, and it is only natural that we should get proper service for our money.

Hiring a contractor which possesses qualified experts, proper equipment and respectable references is cheaper on the long run than ending up with a shoddy, makeshift solution performed by a self-professed, economy-class jack-of-all-trades. By choosing the right contractor one can save an awful lot of headache and worry. 

Don’t forget! In construction, cheap can often turn out to be expensive!

A FEW IMPORTAN STEPS WHEN CHOOSING THE RIGHT CREW:

If you can, choose someone who was recommended to you. (Of course, if you don’t know anybody yet, that’s no problem either.) We list here a couple of advices which should help you know who you are facing:

  • A good contractor, in addition to professional knowledge, has the proper machines, instruments, devices, tools and an office.
  •  The contractor should use a crew with proper professional qualifications.
  • The more professional experience the contractor has the better. Of course, that doesn’t mean that a bricklayer can’t be trusted if he’s young.
  • Years of experience gained abroad tells a lot about the contractor.
  • Has he worked before on the subject you wish him to perform? You can find that out from his references.
  • What are his prices? Quality should by no means be priceless
  • If he has a website, visit it. If it’s sophisticated, impressive and implies know-how, it means that the owner invested money and energy into it, which in turn means, that his work and image is important to him, so it is likely that this kind of commitment is noticeable in his work as well.
  • Check the details: It is a good sign when the contractor himself is one of the crew, he does actual work, is present during the whole construction, manages and directs the works, orders the material, supervises, etc.
  • Meet the contractor in person, check out his office and site. If the contractor meets all the listed criteria, the only thing that you should take into consideration is personal chemistry.

If you don’t want to waste your time with an inept worker, exercise your right to choose!

BRIquetting

BRIQUETTE – 100% WOOD MATERIAL

Wood briquettes are very popular in Western-Europe and in Hungary as well. Because of ever-increasing energy prices, more and more people turn towards traditional wood burning heating devices. It’s easy on the environment, ready-to-use, and saves money as well.

Wood briquette is a clean, economical, comfortable and safe source of heat, which can be moved easily without getting dirt all over the place. It is made of wood shavings, sawdust and woodchip, with high-pressure dry press.

There are NO ADDITIVES or BINDERS in the production process.

The wood particles are bind together by natural compounds (lignin and resin) found between them, therefore the briquette is a fully combustible product from an ecological viewpoint, and it has the same chemical composition as natural wood.

It’s heating value is outstanding, it retains the heat for a considerable period, so it provides long lasting, even and almost perfect burning – and warmth.

It can be used as a household or industrial material as well. It is suitable for heating in tile stove, tile fireplace, wood burning furnace, dual-fuel boiler, thermo fireplace or thermo tile stove. 

Its heating value is not determined by the shape, but the used wood type, the moisture content of the material, and the quality of the press (with higher pressure, the briquette’s capability to smoulder increases). 

ECONOMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE WOOD BRIQUETTE

The briquette burns 2-3 times longer than firewood, while it cost 40% less than natural gas.

 

ADVANTAGES OVER FIREWOOD

  • It’s 2-3 times denser than firewood and has a 50% larger heating value, which means that in order to reach the same warmth, you need to burn much less of it.
  • It’s high heating value, approx. 17,5 – 18,9 MJ/kg (4000 – 4500 calories), is the same as brown coal’s.

 

DON’T BUY THE WATER INSIDE THE WOOD!

Wood stored outdoors easily absorbs rainwater, which not only decreases its heating value, but it increases its weight above normal levels. Usually wood is sold by the weight, and as wet wood weigh more than dry, we receive even less wood with a weak heating value than we would if we had bought dried wood. Since wet wood can’t dissipate heat, it is deposited on the inside of the furnace or the chimney and creates soot and tar.

PACKAGING OF THE WOOD BRIQUETTE 

While the storing of wood is space and labour consuming, wood briquettes are kept in plastic sacks. The wood briquette is a packed fuel, which has a standardized and regular shape. 

Since moisture and humidity cannot enter the closed enclosure, the briquette can be stored for months, even years without any decrease in their quality. 

Transport and loading is simple. Storing is easy on space since the standard-size, regular packages can be sorted smoothly and evenly. There is no need for any further process, e.g. splitting, after delivery. It is highly economical since you have to move them only once. Storing is clean, space-saving, comfortable and safe. The used up amount is clearly visible and manageable during the heating season.

BRIQUETETS ARE SOLD IN 10 KG PLASTIC SACKS.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION 

WOOD BRIQUETTE IS AN ECONOMICAL FUEL CREATED BY RECYCLING.

Wood briquette is made of wood chips, and it contains no binder or other chemical compound which could be released during burning. Wood briquette is a renewable energy source.

Its ashes are environmentally friendly as well, it can be even used for fertilization purposes in the garden. It doesn’t create any soot and it doesn’t harm the environment either since it is CO2 neutral, which means that during burning it generates only the amount of carbon dioxide which was originally used by the plant during photosynthesis.

There is no sulphur in wood, therefore its smoke does not contain the environmentally harmful sulphur dioxide!

USEFUL 

Heating with wood briquette is done the same way as with coal or firewood. Only a couple of pieces of briquette, one match and a piece of paper rounded up in a wad are what you need. After it catches fire, you can gradually add more, but the smouldering of the briquette is long lasting, so you only need to add more briquettes when the fire is near of going out.

Wood briquette is burning correctly when flames appear at its every side. After this, the vent can be closed, enabling the product to start sweating. But until the briquette catches fire, proper ventilation has to be observed. When the briquette starts to smoulder the condition has to be maintained as long as possible, since this is the way the most heat is being generated. Warning! It is forbidden to use gas oil, petrol or other combustible material when lighting the briquette, although special firelighter tablets are allowed.

During burning the size of the wood briquette may change, therefore you should not fill the burning space full with them (50-60% filling is recommended).
