As the experts in everything coal related, the team here at Pearson Fuels recognise why some people may call us biased when we say that the fossil fuel is the best on the market. Luckily, we have some interesting facts in order to back up our controversial statement. Read on to find out why we believe coal is superior to charcoal and seasoned wood…


Not only is coal an incredibly cost effective fuel to mine, it is also economical to burn too. After all, it burns brighter and longer than seasoned wood which means that homeowners will see profit in return for their purchase. In fact, many also notice that their electricity bills reduce during the winter season because they are burning coal instead of relying on radiators.


Coal is the only fuel that is readily available in abundance which means that consumers should be able to continue purchasing it in steady supply for the foreseeable future. This is beneficial because produce that is low in supply often increases in price in order to compensate and since affordability is an important factor in the success of the coal industry, price hikes would be incredibly damaging.


Not only does the heat output of coal provide an incredibly aesthetic feature in the home, it is also an effective way to heat your home. After all, it burns much hotter than alternative fuels at a much steadier rate. This means that a 12 hour coal fire will outlast a wood fire without much interference. After all, wood must be regularly attended to in order to make sure the fire isn’t smothering.

Here at Pearson Fuels, we specialise in a wide variety of fireplace and stove friendly fuels. With this said, we like to believe that coal is the reigning supreme when it comes to the consumers favourite. After all, it is available in abundance, provide a cost effective heat output that can actually help lower your bills and burns 20% brighter than wooden alternatives.
