Our Top Tips for Burning Smokeless Coal
Smokeless coal is a fantastic choice when it comes to heating your home, however, it is important to consider these tips to ensure you get the most out of your coal and prevent costly mistakes.
Always clear the grate and ashpan before lighting smokeless coal
As coal is a mineral fuel, it requires air from below in order to combust. Ensuring there is good air flow around your coal will enable the coal to burn more effectively and at a higher temperature than if air is restricted.
Never burn wet or damp smokeless coal
There are numerous reasons why you should never burn smokeless coal that is wet/damp:
1) The coal will burn at a much lower rate, meaning you won’t benefit from the full heat potential.
2) The moisture from the coal will rise up into the flue and potentially cause damage, especially to stainless steel liners.
3) A residue is often left on your stove which is tricky to clean and looks unsightly.
We recommend tipping your smokeless coal into a coal bunker or indoor bucket, dependant on the amount you have. This gives the coal chance to air and dry out if any moisture has been absorbed.
Don’t be tempted to mix smokeless coal and logs
Although this seems to be a common practice, it’s not something we would recommend.
As mentioned earlier, coal needs air from below to combust, whereas wood needs air from above. Burning the fuels simultaneously is ineffective and ultimately a waste of money as neither will be able to burn to its full potential.
Secondly, moisture from burning wood and the sulphur from burning smokeless coal combine to create an acid which can corrode flues. Again, this is especially true for stainless steel liners. Even kiln-dried logs contain some moisture, so it is best to avoid this altogether.
It is worth mentioning that you can use wood kindling to help start your fire, however, you should always stick to one type of fuel as your main energy source.
