Conventional Kilns Lumber Nyle Systems Brewer, Maine

Heat loss through venting is one of the most notable downfalls of conventional kilns. With venting being necessary to remove the excess moisture, you are stuck with substantial energy expenditure. In some cases, heat loss causes the kilns control system to call for the heating system to bring the temperature back up after venting.
