Can I burn smokeless coal and kiln dried logs together?


Turn up the heat

Burning coal and logs together can produce a gorgeous fire mixing the aroma and long flames of a log fire with the high heat output and longevity of solid fuel. Mixing fuels can also be beneficial to your appliance, as the higher temperatures produced by the coal help to drive off any moisture in the logs, reducing the build up of tar.

Getting the mix right

We recommend that only smokeless coal and Ready to Burn kiln dried wood. The lack of moisture in the wood is crucial, so if you don’t use kiln dried wood always ensure that your firewood is well seasoned before burning it with coal.

Our customers have told us that their favourite smokeless fuels to burn with logs are Homefire Ovals and Ecoal50.

Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for your appliance with regards to choosing a fuel, and mixing fuels.

If you’re buying firewood to warm your home, Homefire kiln dried logs are the highest quality firewood available for multi-fuel stoves and open fires as they burn at a high temperature with a bright, natural flame. 

Our kiln dried logs are also now officially certified by Woodsure Ready to Burn scheme which means they’re dried to less than 20% moisture.
