    Smokeless Coal average price 6th Oct 19 at 9:17 AM
    Hi All,

    This will be our first winter running our Clearview Pioneer 24/7 in the hope of trying to reduce our oil consumption and bill.

    Just wondering what sort of price I should expect to pay for 25kg bags of smokeless coal.
    Mortgage for 212000 - 10/17 for 35 years!
    Aiming to overpay each year as close to 10% as possible!

    It depends on the quantity you're able to store. If you can manage a metric tonne on a pallet, then the best price I've found works out (I buy from housefuel.co,.uk) at about 330 for 40 bags. Buying it a bag at a time from a garage will cost you a lot more.

    You can get a range of prices on eBay, for comparisons.

    We pay 22.50 for a sack (50kg) of New Flame delivered & dumped into our bunker, although you can get 10kg bags from B&M for 3.99

    Also a nearby coal merchant's prices:

    Also depends on the area you live. I'm paying between 12.50 and 13.60 for a 25Kg bag depending on which coal and the quantity.

    One thing I would say to the OP - Do not try using anthracite lumps. I found they just would not stay alight in my stove (Aarrow i500). Fortunately, my supplier collected and refunded on the unopened bags.
    Her courage will change the world.

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.

    Ugh so jealous with a Clearview and 6" flue.. follow A.Badger's advice buy in bulk if you have the storage space, plus get yourself a bunker with minimum of 150kgs for immediate use.

    I have found Supacite/Maxibrite to be good fuels for clean glass, etc, or you could go for Phurnacite. Anthracite when you are more experienced, I hear it burns well in a Clearview..which, did I mention I don't have a 6" flue.

    I'm trying New Flame, as I couldn't get Supacite/Maxibrite from usual supplier and it aint bad. If you haven't got a stove fan - get one

    Hope you enjoy your first Winter
