What are the benefits of Homefire Smokeless Fuels?
Today, more and more people are rediscovering the joy of a real fire, whether it’s by opening up existing fires and chimneys, or investing in the new generation of glass fronted stoves.
A real fire can make a huge impact in your home and if you want to burn solid fuel and get the best possible performance from your appliance, choose from CPL’s Homefire smokeless fuels. Among the most popular are Homefire, Homefire Ovals and Ecoal50.
These premium quality smokeless fuels give great heating performance and are very low in smoke so they’re better for your wallet and better for the environment too.
Here’s an overview of their benefits:
Better for you
Whether you’re heating a single room or a whole house with an open fire, glass fronted stove, or room heater, or even if you’re fuelling a cooker, CPL has the right smokeless fuel for your needs.
Homefire smokeless coals give out a consistently higher heat and can last as much as 40% longer than traditional coal. As a result, industry figures show that although coal may appear to be cheaper, it costs about the same to heat an average sized room with Homefire smokeless coal as it does with traditional coal, as you use less! So that means less work refuelling the fire, and no extra costs.
Better for the environment
Smoke emissions from Homefire smokeless coals are a fraction of those from traditional coal, producing up to 80% less smoke, and 25% less Carbon Dioxide. Each of our fuels also contains a percentage of renewable material which is used as a binder, further increasing their environmental credentials.
As Europe’s leading manufacturer of smokeless fuels, CPL carries out extensive ongoing research and development to ensure continual improvement in the performance of our fuels.
Smokeless fuels are extremely versatile as they can be used in a wide range of open fires and closed appliances, such as multi-fuel stoves, room heaters and cookers. Whereas traditional coal could damage your multi-fuel stove, smokeless fuel is actually more efficient when burnt in this type of appliance.
