Did you know the discovery of how to make fire for the purpose of burning wood is regarded as one of humanity’s most important advances? The use of solid fuel as a basis for heat is considered much older than civilisation. In recent years thousands of consumers are turning to alternative types of fuel and solid fuel burning stoves to replace all, or part, of their central heating.

The preference for using solid materials as fuel to produce energy and provide heating is becoming an increasingly popular choice as we choose fires to help us stay warm throughout the winter months.  Solid fuels such as wood, peat, coal and briquettes are quite common and indigenous to Ireland and can be sourced fairly cheaply.
