Despite being less well known than house fuel alternatives, smokeless coal is said to provide a higher heat output and last 40% longer. It may come with a costly upfront fee but the benefits of smokeless coal can actually help stove users save more money in the long run. Read on as the Pearson Fuels team go through 3 reasons why you should consider swapping out your bituminous coal for smokeless alternatives…


Burning smokeless fuel releases 80% less smoke into the atmosphere (hence the name) and produces 40% less carbon dioxide when it is burned. This means that it is a much more eco-friendly option that can help benefit the environment whilst ensuring that we still have good access to fuel sources. In fact, if we switch to smokeless coals that contain natural binders and materials, we can also successfully reduce our carbon footprint too.

Better Health

Many people are unaware that our reliance on coal as a house fuel could actually be contributing to things like hay fever, asthma and eczema. By switching to a smokeless alternative and ensuring that your home is correctly ventilated in order to remove any pollutants, you can do wonders for your health, and the environment. After all, smoke is a common cause of respiratory disorders!

Stove Approved

It is said that bituminous coal can be bad for your stove over a long period of time. After all, house coal can burn at incredibly hot temperatures and cause your stove to become clogged with soot very quickly, gradually reducing the efficiency of your stove. On the other hand, smokeless fuels are designed for stove use; allowing you to reap the benefits of a hot fire without suffering from irreparable stove damage in the process.

Here at Pearson Fuels, we have a wide range of smokeless coals for those who are looking to make the switch. After all, you don’t have to live in a smoke control zone to do your part for the environment, and your health, by opting for the more environmentally friendly fuel type!
