Wood is a renewable source of fuel, provides the best flame effect and a wonderful smell there will be less ash than with the equivalent coal or smokeless fuel fire. Well-seasoned wood can be difficult to obtain and is bulky to store.
Smokeless fuel (Multifuel)
Smokeless fuels such as anthracite produce more heat than wood and burn more slowly, enabling fires to slumber throughout the night. Smokeless fuel can be burnt in smoke control zones. Smokeless fuel makes more ash than wood, is more expensive to buy and can be dirty.
