Q & A

Q: Can I mix house coal/smokeless fuel with my logs in my wood burner?

A: This is a big no! Coal and wood burners DO NOT mix! Smokeless fuel in a wood burner could potentially be hazardous too! A wood burner should only ever be used to burn wood! For more details visit Fire & Chimney Safety.

Q: What about mixing in a multi-fuel stove?

A: Logs and smokeless fuel in a multi-fuel stove are fine. Traditional house coal however we do not advise unless approved by the multi-fuel stove manufacturer. This is because not all multi-fuel stoves are designed to cope with the heat and smoke output that house coal generates.

Q: How can I tell the difference between multi-fuel and wood burning stoves?

A: In a wood burner (pictured left/top) firewood is burnt on a flat floor stove. A multi-fuel stove (pictured right/bottom) has a raised grate within the burner for the ash to run down the dust pan. The difference is because wood is reliant on air from above and also burns better on a bed of ash, whilst smokeless fuels are more reliant on air coming from below. Therefore, smokeless fuels won't burn properly in a wood burner.

Q: Are wood burners and multi-fuel stoves being banned in 2022?

A: No, not at all. All new wood burning and multi-fuel stoves as of 2022 will have to be Ecodesign models, but there has been no legislation placed on you having to replace or modify your existing appliance.

Q: What can I burn in a pizza oven?

A: Flaming Logs and Premier Logs are both ideal for pizza ovens.

Q: What can I burn in a fire pit?

A: Flaming Logs are perfect for small fire pits. For larger fire pits - Flaming Logs and Premier Logs both work well, then once you've got a solid base going you could include seasoned firewood. If your fire pit has a grate at the bottom and you're looking for that prolonged red glow you could add Homeflame or Newburn smokeless fuels to the mix. Other smokeless fuels (although suitable) are best utilised for closed appliances. House coal meanwhile will give off a lot of smoke to begin with, so is not advised in a group gathering. Avoid poorly seasoned firewood!
