Firewood is often sold in units other than a traditional cord, such as a fireplace or face cord. These indicate smaller amounts of wood. A fireplace cord is generally one-third the size of a full cord.
Depending upon the length of the logs, a face cord runs between one-fourth and one-half of a full cord. Fireplace logs are typically 16 inches long. However, other measurements are sometimes used, typically 12 or 24 inches. On average, three face cords equal one full cord.Learn more about Heating & Cooling
