In the lead-up to Christmas, it’s extremely likely that a lot of us will be switching on the fire and grabbing a mug of hot chocolate, as we get ourselves all cosy throughout the cold winter nights. We are all fully aware of the important benefits that come from both owning a fireplace and from using smokeless fuel, and so it’s surprising to find that so many people are put off purchasing one due to a few common misconceptions.

As with most industries, there are many myths surrounding the world of fireplaces and coal, and these can actually deter people from an open fire- which is ultimately costing them a pretty penny. In a year that has since the upheaval of Brexit, Donald Trump and pesky little Pokémon, we believe that you fully deserve to relax in front of a nice warm fire, and you shouldn’t let these myths hold you back from a comfortable winter.

That’s why we’re here at Pearson Fuels: to bust those myths once and for all! So sit back, relax and enjoy, as we put those misconceptions well and truly to bed.

They Are Expensive

Many people believe that fireplaces are far too expensive for what they do. There are those that are put off installing one simply because they think that they aren’t worth the money, however these people simply haven’t considered how much money they will save in the long run. Energy companies are always hiking up their prices, and you won’t have to worry about this if you’re using an open fire to heat your home. With such a high saving on energy bills, you’d be a fool not to go for a fireplace!

They Don’t Generate Enough Heat

Another common misconception is the idea that fireplaces just don’t generate enough heat, and that people will be better off just using their central heating. This simply isn’t true- as a fireplace being fuelled by some top quality coal is guaranteed to provide you with a warm, cosy environment that just can’t be matched by other energy sources. Not only will a fireplace keep you warm, it will also provide you with a place to relax in.

They Are Bad For The Environment

It’s surprising how many people believe that fireplaces are bad for the environment. They must see the smoke coming out of the chimney and automatically assume that fireplaces and coal are not eco-friendly, however they couldn’t be further from the truth. Using high quality, smokeless fuels will dramatically reduce the emissions and your carbon footprint, and using wooden logs means your utilising a sustainable energy source!
