What are the differences between regular coal and smokeless fuels?

Coal are usually split into two types. House Coal and Smokeless Fuel.

House Coal

Regular house coal is a black bituminous fuel which is found in many areas of the world and is a 100% natural product. Mined from the ground, it’s the prehistoric remains of vegetation. In fact, the energy from coal is the energy absorbed from the sun more than 290 million years ago.

Regular house coal has been the solid fuel of choice for generations and is still a very popular way to heat your home.

It produced very little ash, has a very high heat output and can be found at relatively low prices making it one of the most popular fuels.

House coal can only be used outside of smoke controlled areas, which are usually less densely populated places.

Smokeless Coal

Smokeless Coals are generally manufactured fuels, press into coal shaped briquettes with a binding agent. They have gained popularity because they give off very little smoke emissions compared to a regular house coal.

The composition of smokeless fuel makes it a very efficient burner. And a high carbon content provides a far more efficient fire with less ass residue.

Low smoke emissions mean they are a little kinder to the environment and can be burnt in smoke controlled urban areas.

Anthracite Coal

Anthracite is also a natural smokeless fuel with a hard, stone-like appearance. It is extremely high in carbon, making it a very efficient burner. Up to 98% in fact. This means that it lets off fewer toxins when burning. It’s worth noting that Anthracite can only be used in certain smoke controlled areas.
