Smokeless Fuel for Preston City Centre

Like most major towns and cities, Preston city centre lies under a DEFRA smoke control area, prohibiting the use of most fuels on open fires, and even some fuels on wood burning stoves. This means that you need to make sure that you're using the right fuel or the right appliance to heat your home.

The smoke control area in Preston roughly covers everything east and south of the M6 and north of the Ribble. This also includes Larches, Ingol, Cadley and Greyfriars, but not Cottam or Lea. For a better look at the area covered, you can download a map from the Preston Council website, in the left margin.

If you're covered by this area, then you should take a look at our smokeless fuels page, which has smokeless coal suitable for burning in these zones, even on open fireplaces. You can also check on the DEFRA site here to see if your appliance is exempt from the rules, in which case our low-moisture kiln dried hardwood logs are also a suitable fuel for your needs.

Kiln Dried for Lower Moisture Content

Especially important for wood burning stoves, making sure that your firewood has a low moisture content is one of the first things to consider when getting your winter fuel. By using our kilns to fire the wood before sending it out to you, Logs Direct can help your fire burn better, for longer, with less choking smoke and lower tar build up.

Although freshly chopped wood sounds romantic, the truth is that fresh or 'green' wood, high in moisture content, takes a long time to start burning and produces very little heat, since the extra water in the logs uses up all the energy. This also means that your fire creates thick, black smoke and is certain to damage a wood burning stove.

Buy your logs from us and you can be sure that we will dry it to below 20% moisture content for you, the ideal place for a cosy log fire.

Free Delivery in Dumpy Bags

For Preston customers, Logs Direct offer free delivery on all orders over £80 (less than the cost of a dumpy bag of kiln dried logs), and all your firewood is delivered in dumpy bags on a pallet, making it easier for you to manage. Delivery will usually take place in 7 working days.

If you have specific needs for your logs or their delivery, then just give us a call on 01524 812476 and we'll be happy to help you.
