Fuels

To ensure our products are of top quality and cost effective, all of our fuels arrive in bulk tippers and are processed on site. This is how we give the quality of fuel at the price you deserve.

open fire or stove?

Because of the many different types of solid fuel available it is important to choose the correct fuel for your appliance. An open fire is less controlable and so requires a higher more volatile, free burning fuel. You have more choice however, when buying a stove. The denser high anthracite briquettes offer a longer burn and slumber nicely with a controlled under grate draught.

what is the best fuel for your fire ?

Although we have been in business for 40 years there is still no definite answer to this question. It may sound strange, but what you require from your fire is personal to you. This can range from the occasional burn on a really cold night/Christmas time, to the constant use throughout the winter months. Your choice of fuel can be affected by the size of your appliance, position of your home and the height of your chimney. The only way you can be sure that you have made the right choice is by trying difference options.

Smokeless fuels

Some locations come under the Smoke Control Act and in these areas you should only use an approved Smokeless Fuel. Most of the modern Ovoids are smokeless.

If you have a stove that is Defra approved you may burn seasoned wood in a non smokeless area.

Non Smokeless Fuels

The most commonly used non smokless fuel is house coal and if your looking for a traditional flame then this is the option for you. However, there are others available that are less "smokey".
