Brown Rock Salt

Rock salt is the most suitable option for increasing traction on slippery roads and is also the most economical means of covering bigger areas. It can be used as residential grit, for clearing drives, and for making pavements safe to walk on.
Rock salt consists of coarse-grained siliceous rock which often contains sharp and angular grains which aid in better traction. It tends to be quite dry and spreads quickly and easily. When compared to white de-icing salt, rock salt tends to be cheaper to use.

Summer offers at Four Seasons Fuels

Take advantage of our special summer offers! These prices will save you money and keep us busy in summer!

Amongst our Fireplace products, chimney cleaning logs are on offer. Chimney cleaning logs are a good solution for a thorough chimney clean. A chimney cleaning log in the fire can render the creosote deposit up the chimney walls brittle and lower the volatile organic compounds in the chimney which reduces the possibility of fires. This effect helps make subsequent mechanical sweeping easier, cleaner and more effective. Follow the link to check out the products on Special Offer.

How are compressed woodchips an efficient alternative to logs?

Hotties or compressed wood chips are a clean and fuel-efficient alternative to logs. There are several attributes of hotties that make these a better alternative when compared to logs.
    • Woodchips are made from 100% renewable, clean recycled wood, making them very environmentally friendly.
    • They are denser and drier when compared to a traditional log.

Use chimney cleaning logs to help prevent chimney fires

The main cause of chimney fires is creosote deposits that form in the chimney after prolonged use. Creosote deposits accumulate over time when the wood burns and releases unburnt gases. The unburnt gases condensate on the chimney walls and form tarry creosote deposits. If allowed to collect and the chimney is left unclean for a long time, this creosote build-up can become quite hazardous and could catch fire at some point.

Order a useful hardwood or softwood chopping block

Hardwood or softwood chopping blocks are useful for chopping your wooden logs. While we do our best to precut and split your wooden logs, they still might be a particular size that does not suit your particular appliance.

Michael Gove, environment secretary

Sales of coal as a household fuel could be banned under government plans to reduce air pollution from open fires and stoves.

Restrictions could also be imposed on the burning of wet wood and councils will be given stronger powers to act against people who flout rules in smoke control areas.

Michael Gove, environment secretary, is targeting home fires because they are the single largest source of particulates that contribute to lung and heart disease, causing 29,000 early deaths a year. About 40 per cent of particulates in 2015 came from burning coal and wood in homes, more than double the proportion from diesel cars. A wood-burning stove can produce more particulates than an HGV.

The stoves are increasingly popular in middle-class homes and hotels, with 1.5 million already fitted in Britain and 200,000 sold annually. Old fireplaces have also been opened up in many houses and can cause greater pollution than stoves. During a smog episode in London last January, half the toxic emissions in some areas came from domestic coal fuel and wood burning. Mr Gove will call for evidence today on the use of house coal, smokeless coal, manufactured solid fuels and wood used for heating. He is considering banning the sale of house coal and only allowing low-sulphur smokeless alternatives. these Smokeless coal tends will be more expensive  and could rise the costs up to 20% to 30% but sellers of some varieties claim they have a higher heat output than traditional coal. the ban on house coal fuel will be enforced by 2020.
He may also encourage people to burn only dried wood. This would either be seasoned wood, left for up to two years to dry naturally, or dried in a kiln. Newly felled wood has a high moisture content above +/-30% makes a lot of smoke and has more than double the emissions of seasoned or kiln-dried wood. Many people buy wet wood in bulk and dry it themselves before burning due to cheaper costs.
the will increase the costs of firewood due to fuel merchants will have to invest in wood kilns and new fuel regulations.
Stricter sulphur limits are also being considered for all smokeless solid fuels to reduce from 4% to 2% this will also increase the cost of smokeless briquette formed fuels.

A Carbon Monoxide Alarm is necessary in every room that has a fuel burning appliance. Our CO-9X 7 year life CO alarm system at Four Seasons Fuel provides you a warning of the presence of CO in your home through the alarm and LED display system.

Sweden new RT1600 retort delivered

Continuing our export drive a new Charcoal Retort RT1600 was built and delivered to Sweden last week and I (Nick Harris) went over to commission it with help from the new owner 'Hans'
This is the second retort to be built, installed and commissioned for the Swedish client who owns 4000 acres of rich woodland estate in Swedish. Nordic pine and glass birch grow very slowly on this sandy bed where trees find the nutrients are hard to find (taking 50yrs of growth to produce 8 inch diameter). Hence trees grow extremely slowly and are more dense than the those grown in the UK.

During commissioning of the charcoal retort the 1st burn when very well lasting 15 hours and producing great new lumpwood charcoal of about 550 - 600Kgs.
The feedstock they were using was Glass Birch.  Because of this density of wood it produces lots of gases with continuous retorting.
The 2nd burn was more even with Hans in control keeping the retort to 525-550 degrees of 10 hrs which was a more controlling temperature producing the same kilos as the first.

Another charcoal retort successfully installed and working!
