House Coal

House coal is a naturally occurring non-smokeless fuel available in 3 sizes.

High quality house coal has no more than 15% ash content and no more than 2% sulphur content, and must not be burnt in smokeless zones, unless it is burnt on an approved 'smoke-eater' appliance.

House coal is ideal for open fires, but may only be used on multi-fuel stoves and Rayburn-type cookers when recommended by the appliance manufacturer and when Smoke Control Regulations do not apply, unless the appliance is exempted by DEFRA.

House Coal production in England has virtually ceased, but house coal from Scotland is often available together with imported, high quality house coals from Poland and Columbia.
