What is your best selling smokeless fuel?

Here at, we offer our smokeless fuels for open fires and closed appliances- so it’s important to note that our best selling smokeless fuel might not be suited for your heating system.

Open Fire: Golite Smokeless Fuel
Golite smokeless fuel is one of our most popular smokeless fuel products that can be burned in smoke control areas. They are shaped into ovals that are easy to light and provide a good heat output and a long-lasting flame with fine residual ash.

Closed Appliance: Homefire Smokeless Coal
Our homefire smokeless coal is a premium grade manufactured smokeless ovoid that offers you the quality and experience of a traditional fire whilst being suitable for use in smoke control areas!

How to get the most out of your fuel products:

Creating the perfect fire can be tricky, especially if this is your first time having to light a coal fire. To ensure you get the most out of our premium products, we have created an easy and simple guide for you to follow so you too can enjoy the warmth of a natural fire in your fireplace or stove:

  1. Open the primary air vent/control and the airwash controls. This is to ensure the fire will receive enough oxygen to get it going.

  2. Put some scrunched up paper or a firelighter on the grate. Add some dry kindling wood and light the firelighter or paper. This creates the perfect firebed in your stove and the kindling materials will help the fire last longer.

  3. Leave the door of the stove slightly open while the fire establishes, and the glass begins to warm up. By doing this, the likelihood of condensation building up on the inside of the glass is reduced.

  4. Add some larger pieces of wood when you notice the fire is going well. Make sure you don’t fill the chamber with logs as this can smother the fire.

  5. Once the logs have caught fire, you can close the door fully.

  6. Close the primary air control.

  7. Control the burn rate using the airwash when the stove is at operating temperature.

  8. You can continue to add small amounts of additional fuel to help maintain the fire.

For more information about how to light your stove, you can read our “Creating the Perfect Fire” guide, which will go in more depth of prep work, cleaning and even the positioning of your fuel.
