Smokeless fuel has endless benefits for you, your fire and your bank balance! At Fires Direct we’ve put together some of the top benefits of using Smokeless Fuel so you can make the best decision for you and your fire and spend your £50 voucher for Coals2U, available when you buy any Fires Direct stove, wisely!
The most important reason for using Smokeless Fuel is the benefit it can have on you and your family. Medical research claims that solid fuel is less likely to cause hay fever, asthma and eczema, because the chimney removes polluted air and draws fresh air through the house. So, when combined with a well-ventilated home, smokeless fuels can be better for you and your family’s health!

As well as benefiting your health, smokeless fuels are also better for your appliance! Coal or Petcoke Briquettes can burn too hot or clog your appliance with soot, both of which are damaging to your stove and could even invalidate your stove warranty. Smokeless fuels, on the other hand, are designed and approved for your stove and release heat in a more controlled way to avoid such damage.
Not only this, but, smokeless fuels are known to produce a consistently higher heat output, and, can last up to 40% longer than house coal. Although coal may be cheaper to purchase, over time, smokeless fuel is more economical given that less fuel is needed to create your desired heat, and, you are less likely to pay out for damaged appliances, making it a value for money alternative to coal!
The FireFox 12" Multi Fuel Stove £548.99
Smokeless fuels are much kinder to the environment than traditional coal as they do not produce excess smoke when burnt, meaning they produce up to 80% less smoke and 40% less C02. This means that smokeless fuels comply with The Clean Air Acts of 1956 and 1968 which were introduced to prevent smog that was caused by the widespread burning of ordinary house coal, so, not only do smokeless fuels reduce your coal budget, they can also help to reduce your carbon footprint too!
