All about Winter Fuel
A selection of natural products for all your winter fuel needs including real firewood logs, kindling, traditional coal, and smokeless coal: perfect for warming up your home on a crisp winter’s evening.
We only sell seasoned hardwood – this means our firewood is cut when the weather is warm and dry. The logs are then dried slowly over several months.
Freshly cut logs can contain up to 50% moisture while our seasoned logs contain around 25% moisture. This means your firewood will heat up faster and last much longer than logs which have been freshly cut.
Note: firewood logs should not be used in Smoke Control areas.
We sell both traditional household and smokeless coal.
If you live in a Smoke Control area you must ensure that no smoke escapes from your chimneys – this means that if you wish to burn fuels in a fireplace, you must use smokeless coal.
Not only does smokeless coal produce 80% less smoke than traditional coal, it lasts longer, provides more heat, and produces 25% less CO2 than traditional coals.
If you do not live in a Smoke Control area you may wish to use traditional, household coals. Household coals are easier to light and reach a high heat more quickly than smokeless coals. They also burn with a stronger flame, which is often aesthetically preferred.
