Please call us on 01631 565 746 for prices.
House Coal is a popular coal for use on open fires, and some coal burning appliances. It is available in two sizes: doubles and trebles. Trebles are larger. House coal is easy to light, burns with a long and strong flame, and has a low ash content, making it relatively easy to clean up after.
Doubles can be delivered loose in 50kg sacks directly to your coal bunker or in 25kg pre-packed sealed plastic bags.
Trebles is delivered loose in 50kg sacks directly to your coal bunker.
Smokeless Coal produces more heat and lasts longer than house coal, so you can use less to achieve the same heat output. Smokeless Coal emits less smoke and C02, so it’s also better for the environment. It burns well in both open fires and closed appliances like multifuel stoves. We sell two types of smokeless ‘eggs’.
Burnwell Blend ‘Eggs’
Burnwell Blend is delivered loose in 50kg sacks directly to your coal bunker.
