Bituminous Coal

Bituminous Coal

Bituminous coal, so called because of its high bitumen content, is the traditional house coal that was the main source of home heating for centuries. It's the soft, black coal that gives you a roaring fire, with smoky yellow flames, that burns for a long time and produces plenty of radiant heat - perfect for open fires and multi-fuel stoves. It's inexpensive and easy to light because it's rich in the tarry substances that combust freely, starting with the dancing yellow flames and burning down to a warm red glow.
