Unfortunately, there is no straight forward answer as different types of coal are made to give different burning properties. However, here at Coal Hut, we have narrowed down our top five fuels for your stove or heating appliances.
Homefire Smokeless Fuel
This type of fuel is ideal for open fires, stoves and your heaters, cookers and boilers. Homefire smokeless is popular in many UK households due to its excellent properties that not only benefit you, but also the environment.
This type of coal is manufactured in forms of ovoids, also referred to as oval pieces from anthracite dust. By having this shape, it allows you to pack the coal pieces together tightly into your stove and not only producing the properties mentioned above, but also an engaging flame with a high heat output and a low residual of ash.

Phurnacite Smokeless Fuel
Due to the size of the phurnacite ovoids, their fire life could be deemed as quite short in open fires, however, when used in the right conditions, such as cookers or room heaters; the phurnacite fuel can last over 18 hours.
Phurnacite fuel produces low amounts of ash and consistent and controllable heat. It is made from compressed anthracite dust, and just like homefire fuel, it is formed into oval shapes called ovoids.

Anthracite is the purest form of coal, consisting of 92% - 985 carbon. It has the highest energy density of any coal (with the exception of graphite). Due to its high carbon content, it means that it doesn’t produce hydrocarbon vapours or tarry and produces a smokeless flame. Here, at Coal Hut we sell a wide range of anthracite fuel which can all be burned in smoke control areas. The products below are ones we recommend for your heater, cooker and boiler.
Large Anthracite Aga Nuts
Large Anthracite Nuts are medium-large sized pieces of Welsh anthracite which is suitable in smoked control areas.
It burns with a low flame that consists of long burn time and high heat output. The ash residual is low which means less cleanup!
It is natural burning coal which is recommended for your stove, cooker and boiler.
