Smokeless & Stove Fuels
Choosing the right fuel for your stove, wood burner, multi-fuel stove burner or open fire will ensure you achieve the most efficient heating results. Stove fuels burn more consistently than natural coal in a low oxygen environment, but still require a stove with a grate to allow the ash to fall away.. On the other hand, burners for wood only may just have an ash bed firebox.
Our comprehensive range of types, shapes and sizes of stove fuel ensures you’ll be able to find something to suit your stove capacity. Choose from our range of multi-fuel ovoids, stovenuts and beans.
Don’t forget to check whether you are in a designated “smoke free zone” (usually urban areas), as this may affect the type of fuel you are allowed to burn on some stoves - on the other hand, check whether your stove is a Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) approved Smoke-Controlled Stove which are exempt. You can find out if you live in a smoke-free zone by going to the Government website and following the steps.
Smokeless fuels for stoves can also be more pleasant to work with on an open fire than traditional coal, and if you have a coal fireplace that is susceptible to draughts, then they may help to reduce the spread of soot.
Smokeless fuels still give out the same heat output as normal, non-authorised fuels like house coal and other wood-burning materials but stick with the clean air acts and smoke control areas that have been enforced. These are not the only benefit of smokeless fuels - their structure ensures that a much more powerful flame can also be produced. A high carbon content means that less ash stays after using the appliance, which ensures that you won’t need to clean or empty the grate as often.
