Winkfield Solid Fuel Company provides you with what we consider to be the best value for premium coal bags, either loose bags or pr-packed.
House Coal is the most popular fuel choice for all open fires and other coal burning appliances throughout the UK. Our House Coal is easy to light and burns with a high heat and a strong natural flame. This type of coal generates a lot of heat and will warm your room quickly and efficiently. House Coal has low ash content and creates only a small amount of ashes, making it easy to clean after use.
Sweeping your chimney removes deposits which have built up due to the burning of coal. It makes sure there is a clear and safe passage for gases caused by the burning process, which are combustible, making the risk of the chimney catching fire less.
Sweeping will also mean that objects such as nests, cobwebs and loose brickwork, which could obstruct the chimney, are also removed.
Ventilation is also very important, as coal burning fires need to be able to breathe. To enable coal fires to function efficiently and safely, they need a constant, steady flow of air. If your home has draught-proofing or double-glazing fitted you may need vents or airbricks in an exterior wall of the room. If you already have air vents or airbricks, make sure that they are not blocked or covered.
