The gift of warmth for Christmas

Blog Filters
 

Looking for an original and very practical Christmas gift for someone with an open fire or a multifuel stove?

How about a selection of our immensely popular wood briquettes or an attractively packaged bag of air-dried hardwood logs? Our customers keep coming back and telling us how much they like the briquettes, which work out cheaper to burn than bought logs and are also much safer for your stove and chimney because they have a lower moisture content. Most stove manufacturers and retailers recommend them because they keep your stove in good condition.

If you’re a bit concerned about an elderly relative or neighbour and whether they’re going to be warm enough during the predicted big freeze, what could be better than a colourful selection of fuel briquettes? Easy and clean to handle, they don’t spit, so are much safer on an open fire.

An attractive smaller present is a bag of Waxlings…the odour-free firelighters made from beeswax and candlewax that look very attractive in small baskets or Christmas boxes.

Many people like to burn logs but have difficulty getting them dry enough. Nothing is worse than a dour, reeking stove or fire! We supply air-dried hardwood logs, and softwood logs too, that are guaranteed at no more than 20% moisture content. Surprisingly, buying them in nets (see picture above) works out cheaper (and more convenient), than in the big square ‘dumpy’ bags. We have a page giving detailed information about comparative weights and how to compare briquettes and logs. If you already have a supply of logs but they’ve turned out to be damp, you can use the briquettes to get up a good hot fire base before putting the logs on, which burns them more cleanly and efficiently. Many of us mix our fuels and enjoy experimenting. Just lately the bark briquettes have become popular for keeping the stove in overnight: you can find out more about them near the foot of the “About Our Wood Fuel” page.

If you’d like to come and look at what we have, or take advantage of our ‘Five Mix and Match Fuels for £20’ offer, do come and see us at the depot at Heathhall.
