Heating with anthracite is an easy, efficient and environmentally-sound way to heat your home. It is the warmest, most steady, comfortable heat source available. Additionally, anthracite’s low sulfur and high carbon content makes it an extremely clean-burning fuel. It produces virtually no smoke or polluting emissions, a major problem with wood and wood pellet-burning stoves.
Heat is measured in BTUs or British Thermal Units. Using this measurement as a comparison, the cost of anthracite can be significantly lower than gas, oil, electricity, cord wood, wood pellets, or propane. As a fuel source, anthracite has many distinct advantages over its better-known alternatives-gas, oil, electricity, cord wood, wood pellets, and propane.
