Dawsons Fuels supply house coal to private residences and businesses throughout the UK. Traditional house coal is more suited for open fires, and creates a long lasting, powerful bed of glowing heat and smaller flames. Hardwood or kiln dried logs can be added for larger dancing flames.
We stock various pallet sizes of coal types and grades, including high temperature, low ash Colombian coal, long burning British coal, and Wildfire briquettes of anthracite, coal and petroleum coke (slightly harder to establish but with a long burn time and an attractive flame). Most of our coal types are available as doubles or larger trebles – choose a smaller grade for easy fire establishment, or opt for larger coal if you want a long burning fuel.
We strongly discourage burning house coal on a stove, even a multifuel burner, as coal releases voluminous smoke before lighting. This ascends an open fire chimney without trouble, but in an enclosed stove the built up smoke can condense and ignite in a flash, damaging the inside of your stove and flue. Dawsons Fuels can supply a full range of specially designed fuels for stoves.
