Can I burn smokeless coal and logs together?

Yes, you can, and it can also be beneficial to your appliance. The additional heat from the solid fuel helps to drive off residual moisture in the logs, significantly reducing the build up of tar. Burning wet wood can also lead to rusting, which can be expensive to repair. A fire constructed from both logs and smokeless coal will burn hotter and for longer.

Can I burn house coal in a multi-fuel stove?

Unless otherwise stated in the manufacturers guide, you should avoid using house coal in your stove. House coal burns considerably hotter than other fuels and many stoves are not designed for this heat, nor for the amount of smoke that coal can produce when first lit. Aesthetically, burning coal on a multi-fuel stove will also cause the glass door to blacken very quickly, and can be difficult and time consuming to clean.
