It seems as if winter has arrived overnight, leaving those of us with open fires and wood stoves beginning the annual search for cost effective fuel.
Whilst logs tend to be readily available, they are difficult and dirty to store, prices are rising and quality can be variable (unless purchased from Round Wood!).
We believe our eco-nuggets are an ideal alternative. These high quality briquettes are recycled from high quality offcuts and sawdust generated in our oak frame and joinery workshops, so are eco-friendly, excellent value and extremely efficient.
For a limited period, we are offering discounts of up to 50% on pallets of our easy to handle 10kg sacks. Builder’s bags are also available.
Why choose Eco Nuggets/Briquettes?
In addition to the eco benefits of using recycled material as burning fuel, briquettes are extremely simple to light, meaning minimal kindling is needed. As the nugget catches fire, it begins to swell and break down producing a high burning temperature, in turn generating more heat into the room.
These eco-nuggets allow you to have more control over your fire, unlike large logs which have a slow burning rate and low heat dispersion. When purchasing your fuel, eco nuggets are available in small 10kg bags, making them easy to stack and store throughout the winter. Pallet loads of sacks are available, as well as builder’s bags.
How to maximise your stoves efficiency.
There are a number of ways to improve your stoves output, including the use of a Heat Powered Stove Fan in conjunction with your eco-nuggets. The Stove Fan works by sitting on top of your wood burning stove, heating the base of the Stove Fan. The heated metal then reacts with the thermo-strip, driving the motor and spinning the blades. This pushes the warm air rising from the stove into the room, providing a more consistent temperature.
Can I use Briquettes in addition to Off-cuts?
Yes. Many customers choose to use our Briquettes when first lighting the fire, to increase the room temperature faster. Logs or off-cuts are then used to keep the fire ‘ticking over’ to maintain a comfortable room temperature. Again if the fire needs a boost, briquettes can be used as and when required. Briquettes are also ideal to use with damp logs that need a boost.
