Also known as soft coal or steam cold, bituminous coal is the most common form of coal available. It lights very easily, has a high heat output and is best used at higher temperatures, as this reduces its carbon dioxide output. It is not the most suitable fuel for open fires as bituminous coal can produce a large amount of soot and smoke that could clog up and damage your chimney as well as cause discomfort in breathing in the room where it’s being used.
Instead, use our bituminous coal as your main fuel source for your closed appliances such as multi-fuel stoves, room heaters, boilers and cookers.
Our bituminous coal is of the highest quality and our products are produced to maximize their efficiency, with a very low water content and the highest possible quality coal. Some of our bituminous coal products produce less ash than others, while some will give a more consistent level of heat output but produce more ash, so make sure to check which one will best suit your needs. If you are unsure, call us on 1850 336699 and we can advise you.
It is important to note that the use of bituminous coal is not permitted everywhere in the country. Please see the disclaimer below for more information.
