Smokeless Fuel for Burners

Did you know it’s possible to have a real fire even if you don’t have it attached to a chimney or vented out in any way? This is made possible with smokeless fuel, which can be poured into the burner and burnt to create a real fire. This will not produce any smoke or harmful waste products so it’s perfectly safe to have a burner installed in any part of the home. This is a way of having a real fire for anyone, even if you don’t have a chimney or any other safe way of removing smoke from the building. You won’t have to worry about it at all.

Who can install burners for smokeless fuel? The answer is, essentially anybody who has room for one in their home! They will give off a lot of heat, meaning you can rely less on your central heating. It is a pleasant, really rather satisfying way to heat your home and to rely less on the National Grid.

A Boiler Stove for a Small Business

As a small business, money and costs are important. If you don’t have enough income, balanced out with too many costs, you will find yourself losing money very quickly. One of the ways you can reset the balance is to reduce your costs. A major cost for every small business is running the building, so if you can reduce the cost of this by making your heating cheaper, then this is much better for you.

A boiler stove is a great initiative to introduce for a small business. Not only will it allow you to just heat certain parts of the building, it will also mean that you can heat water up with it at the same time. Burning logs is a cheaper, more environmentally friendly way of heating your building and you can burn many different kinds, from coffee logs to seasoned hardwood to wood that you have seasoned yourself.

Coffee Logs for Fires

Coffee logs are a good option for home fires, like log burners, open fires and chimineas. They are made from the grounds of used coffee, often around 25 cups of coffee will be able to make one log. This makes them good for the environment and a useful way of making renewable energy for people to use at home. This can be an appealing option for lots of homeowners, who want to be less reliant on the national grid and to be more self sufficient in terms of their energy consumption. This can be better for the environment and better for people’s energy bills.

Do coffee logs create good fires?

Coffee logs will also create very good fires, lighting quickly and burning well. You might also want to use them with other kinds of timber or firewood, to keep the fire burning for longer. They won’t last as long as other types of timber but with a combination of logs, you can enjoy every aspect of a fire.

Buying Seasoned Logs from Sustainable Sources

As the world becomes more environmentally aware, it’s becoming more imperative that we change our own habits in line with our beliefs. There is only so much we can do if we don’t start by shaping our habits at home – the everyday things we can do might include walking instead of driving, recycling food, and using the heating less to save energy. For some time now, there has been an increase in the number of people choosing to heat their homes with sustainable fuels and wanting to rely less on the national grid and their own central heating. Being self sufficient is an idealist way of life for many.

Burning firewood is certainly a sustainable source of energy – it is renewable, as trees can be replanted and the earth won’t run out of trees if we manage sources effectively. By far the most effective way of heating a home with a fire is to use seasoned logs – ones that have been dried out so that what remains is a log that has a lower water content. Due to these lower moisture levels, the logs will burn for longer and will produce a more effective burn as well. You can choose hardwood, seasoned logs from many sources that will suit your fire perfectly.

Some sustainable and environmentally friendly sources of seasoned logs

These are some of the ways in which you can obtain seasoned logs that are environmentally friendly and that will have as little impact on the planet as possible:

  • Buy from a company that meets all PEFC regulations. This is a non-governmental initiative, called the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification. It means that forests have been managed sustainably and trees are replanted in sufficient quantities, so your wood is coming from a reputable source. When you are buying from internet stores or local shops, look out for this PEFC certification.
  • Season your own firewood. This will require some space to allow you to season the wood, but it is possible. Seasoned wood is essentially firewood that has been dried out, so if you are able to keep the wood and dry it out yourself, you will be able to create better fires. You will need a wood or log store to keep the wood dry, providing shelter so that it can dry out effectively. You will need to have enough time to season your wood, usually about a year. This means you will need a constant supply of wood that you are drying out, to keep you well stocked for the cold winter months.
  • Talk to local businesses. You might be able to source seasoned wood that is a by product of other industries, such as gardening, landscaping and tree surgery. Often, people who run these kinds of businesses will end up with large amounts of wood and they won’t have anything they need to do with it, so they will season it themselves and sell it on. This means they can put timber to good use, and you can source local, sustainable seasoned logs.

Colourful Stoves for Modern Living

Modern living isn’t black and white, and nor is your stove – if you don’t want it to be, that is. Modern day stoves come in a variety of colours to suit all kinds of homes, be it modern, traditional, or rather more classic in design. You can choose a stove in a range of colours and designs to suit your own personal preferences, without having to go to anywhere at all specialist to do so.

What kinds of colours can you choose? Pastels are particularly popular, in different shades of blue and green. Just imagine a powder blue stove in your home, complementing your aesthetic and making your house look modern, and at the same time, rather retro. You can also choose other colours that are neutral but a little different, such as cream or charcoal grey. Colours go in and out of fashion, but your stove doesn’t have to. Choose a colour that will complement your home and match your personal preferences.
