Here at Pearson Fuels, we recognise the growing interest in smokeless fuels. After all, making small changes in order to benefit the environment has become increasingly popular over the past few years and this means that more and more house coal users are deciding to swap out their bituminous coal for a smokeless alternative. Read on as we go through a few reasons why you should make the change too…
Perhaps the most known benefit of smokeless fuels is the reduced damage they have on the environment in comparison to bituminous alternatives. In fact, smokeless coals contain less volatile materials and have a high carbon content of around 98% which is why they give off less smoke when they are burned. This means that they release less dangerous gases into the atmosphere, producing around 20% less carbon dioxide according to statistics.
Due to their high carbon content, smokeless fuels are said to be incredibly efficient to burn and result in a very impressive fire output. In fact, smokeless coal fires tend to burn at very hot temperatures in comparison to bituminous coal or firewood and are characterised by bright dancing flames that can fulfil any aesthetic desire.
Although smokeless coals tend to be more expensive than bituminous house coals, many homeowners see them as an investment for the future. After all, they burn for a lengthy amount of time which means that your supply will last much longer. In addition to this, they are an incredibly versatile fuel choice as they can be used on a wide variety of appliances including multi-fuel stoves and open fires. This means that you don’t have to invest in a brand new fireplace if you decide to change your choice of fuel.
Although smokeless coal is known for its environmental benefits, many people are unaware that it can actually benefit your fire output too. After all, their chemical composition denotes a high carbon content and this means that there will be less ash remaining when smokeless fuels are burned, generating an incredibly efficient fire output.
