Solid Fuel Stoves Dublin
For a host of reasons as diverse as excellent value for money to concerns about energy and SECURITY OF SUPPLY , Solid Fuel Stoves are gaining hugely in popularity in homes all over Ireland, but particularly in the capital Dublin. With so many New & Stylish, cost effective and highly efficient Solid Fuel Stoves on the market in Ireland today, Leading Interior Designers often first create the whole “hearth” of the home with the latest Chic Solid Fuel Stove in the family livingroom or kitchen and expand out throughout the home from there. As you contemplate your choice of Modern Contemporary or Traditional Style Solid Fuel Stoves, there is a vast array of the most beautiful, most efficient and most cost effective Solid Fuel Stoves and wood burning stoves on display in showrooms all across Dublin, (and I will discuss some solid fuel stoves and solid fuel stoves suppliers/showrooms another time soon )
But first let me explore the kind of smokeless fuel that will give you the highest heat output and optimal performance in your new Solid Fuel Stoves.
Along with wood burning stoves, many of the stylish and highly efficient Solid Fuel Stoves available on the market in Dublin now are the highly acclaimed “Multi Fuel Stoves” or “Multi-Fuel Burners”. As that name suggests, you can burn most solid fuels and smokeless coal in these solid fuel stoves. Most of the SMOKELESS FUEL PRODUCTS we supply are very suitable for burning in these Multi-Fuel solid fuel stoves. Indeed, in most cases I would initially recommend our regular Smokeless Fuels such as our PREMIUM QUALITY MASTERBLEND or DIAMOND BLEND for use in most new multi fuel stoves. For ease of lighting and a more lively, flamey performance in the stove, our more easily manageable range of Smokeless Fuels is an excellent choice for most solid fuel stoves. Along with our Renewable, Carbon Neutral Firewood Logs, Bord na Mona Peat Briquettes, our NEW Coal Briquettes and even our traditional homely and aromatic Turf, the menu from which you can choose is extensive.
CLEARGLOW ANTHRACITE for Solid Fuel Stoves
Our High Quality Clearglow Anthracite is ultimately what you want to aspire to as the MAIN fuel supply in most multi fuel stoves / solid fuel stoves. It is at the highest end of the scale of smokeless fuels and burns differently to our regular Smokeless Coal. Clearglow anthracite is a high quality high heat output, extremely hard, naturally smokeless coal. It has a Higher Calorific Value, which means a higher heat output, and is perfect as the main fuel supply in most multi-fuel stoves / solid fuel stoves with a boiler providing constant hot water and optimum heat output from the radiators around the house.
It is a little harder to ignite and initially it is a little slower to get going in your solid fuel stove. But it is correspondingly much longer lasting and better value. Clearglow Anthracite is very responsive to the draught controls on modern solid fuel stoves and will burn for much longer, with a higher heat output and better overall performance. This is especially true in the very coldest winter weather, where for the sake of a shovelful or two of Clearglow Anthracite before bedtime you can keep your Solid Fuel Stove burning overnight. With just a little trial and error you can set the draught control on your solid fuel stove to the ideal level to put your fire into “sleep mode” and keep your home warm and toasty right throughout the coldest winter nights. Just turn up the air control again before refulling the next morning, and within minutes you have a blazing fire again. Because there is no need reset the fire and to fully refill the fire-box the next morning, nor indeed to reheat your home from scratch, there is little or no additional cost to keeping your home and your family warm and cosy as the overnight winter temperatures plummet outside. 24/7 heating is not only achievable with your solid fuel stove, but totally affordable.
ECOBRITE for Solid Fuel Stoves
ECOBRITE is a manufactured smokeless fuel that is an Ovoid, oblong or egg shaped, high heat output fuel that is designed for optimum performance in Multi Fuel Stoves & Solid Fuel Stoves. It is a Clean Burning, Lively & Flamely fuel that burns to a fine ash in solid fuel stoves. It is manufactured right here in Ireland by Arigna Fuels and is ideal for burning either alone in your solid fuel stoves, or in combination with our slower burning High Quality Clearglow Anthracite to give you the best of both worlds in most Solid Fuel Stoves or Multi Fuel Stoves.
ALL NEW SMOKELESS COAL BRIQUETTES for Solid Fuel Stoves
Manufactured to the highest specifications in Germany for solid fuel stoves, our All New Smokeless Coal Briquettes are the perfect addition to our High Quality Clearglow Anthracite or Ecobrite in your Solid Fuel Stove or Multi-Fuel Stove. Meeting Germany’s stringent “Polution Control Act” this smokeless coal briquette is Extremely Clean and Easy to Handle, Kind to Your Chimney, and Long Lasting in your Solid Fuel Stove.
Very Different to Bord Na Mona Briquettes, our All New Smokeless Coal Briquettes are made from Lignite, a young brown coal that is a clean burning, low emmissions smokeless fuel & a longer lasting addition to your solid fuel stove. Just two or three new coal briquettes on top of your Clearglow Anthracite or Ecobrite fire will not only add a cosy warm and friendly flame, but will burn for hours and add a real and longer lasting effect in your solid fuel stove.
FIREWOOD LOGS, TURF & BRIQUETTES for Solid Fuel Stoves
As you would expect, Dry Seasoned Firewood logs are perfect for Wood Burning Stoves, but are also suitable for many Solid Fuel Stoves as an addition to our recommended Smokeless Fuels. Kinder to the environment, Firewood Logs are a wholly renewable energy source and are considered to be CARBON NEUTRAL. Locally sourced Firewood Logs also provide a much needed economic impetus to indiginous and mostly small family run business’ in surrounding rural areas. Also contributing to local rural employment, Traditional Turf is also a favourite among many Solid Fuel Stove users. Not quite as clean on glass fronted Solid Fuel Stoves, the aroma of an occasional sod or two of Turf evokes a uniquely Traditional Irish sense of warmth and homliness. Bord Na Mona Briquettes are perfect for adding a friendly flame on the coldest winter nights, re-invigorating a low or slumbering fire, and are absolutely ideal for starting the fire quickly in your Solid Fuel Stove.
As with any manufactured device, you should consult the instructions provided by the manufacturer of your solid fuel stoves. All solid fuel stoves are manufactured to varying degrees of specification and as you would expect, the manufacturer is best placed to advise on what they believe is the most suitable type of fuels for the materials that they use in the manufacture of their particular solid fuel stoves
