Can I burn Coal in a wood burner?

Posted on

This is a common question. The simple answer is No.

House  coal and smokeless coal should not be burned in a wood burner. The main difference between a wood burner and a multi-fuel stove is the design. Wood burners are designed to burn Logs.

In a wood burner the wood is placed on the floor since wood needs air from above to initiate combustion.  Coal on the other hand, requires air from above and below.  Multi-fuel stoves have a raised grate where fuels are placed.

Therefore, I would recommend one to only burn wood or wood based products like briquettes in a wood burner.
