Which Fuel is Best For Me?

With so many options to choose from it can be a daunting task picking the best fuel for you and your requirements. So we want to answer a question we're asked a lot, "which fuel is best for me?".

The growth in use of solid fuel in recent years, with multi-fuel stoves for example becoming more and more popular, it is difficult knowing which type you are supposed to use. That is why here at HouseFuel we do not have a long, drawn out range, but instead stock three quality fuels for use on a wide range of appliances.

HouseFuel Premium Coal

Our HouseFuel Premium Coal is a grade A Colombian fuel considered to be the best available on the market. The coal provides excellent heat output with very little ash content. The high carbon content results in an efficient fire with little wastage and low maintenance.

The House Coal is available in both doubles and trebles. This does not relate to the quality of the coal but rather its standard average size. Doubles are typically between 25-50mm whilst trebles are 50-90mm.

HouseFuel Premium Coal cannot be used in Smoke Control Areas, if you are unsure as to whether you reside in one or not please contact your local authority.

HouseFuel Smokeless Ovals

This superior product with low ash content burns hotter, cleaner and for longer than traditional house coal. The ovals provide fantastic heat output and are authorised for use in Smoke Control Areas.

Anthracite Small Nuts
Anthracite is a natural smokeless fuel that beds together closely to create an intense fire bed. This provides great efficiency and value for money burning consistently for long durations of time. The nuts do however require very good airflow to burn well due to their high purity and carbon content. This makes them difficult to light and sustain in some appliances like multi-fuel stoves. Anthracite can be burn in Smoke Control Areas.
