With the Irish economy still in serious difficulties, and those slight signs of recovery yet to emerge, many people have been taking a look at all aspects of household expenditure, including trying to better manage those regular bills that land on the door mat every month or two.

An obvious place to start is with home heating costs. Right now in Ireland, Home Heating Oil is dearer than the rest of Europe. Indeed, the huge outlay for a fill of oil now is almost enough to make your head spin. Meanwhile, Natural Gas prices continue in an upward spiral, after another increase in the order of 20% or so. Meanwhile hard pressed householders witness the cheapest coal in Dublin since before 2010

The particularly severe cold spells we have witnessed in recent winters, with most of Ireland covered in a blanket of snow for a number of weeks, has not only brought the country to a near standstill, but has also seen many people face the unexpected shock of huge increases to their bi-monthly natural gas bills, while empty home heating oil tanks needed to be replenished at ever increasing cost. These large outlays, in one fell swoop, are particularly difficult for many home owners to manage in the present economic crisis. As heating systems struggled to maintain a comfortable level of warmth inside our homes while temperatures plummeted outside, along with the greatly increased hours of demand each day, many saw their bills up to double the normal payment, or even more.

Right throughout Ireland, but particularly in the capital, cheap coal in Dublin is making a big comeback as people look to the trusty Open Fire again as a means to better manage their Home Heating Costs.  Coal Merchants Dublin have already reported an upturn in sales Y/Y. After a decade or more of declining  coal deliveries Dublin, this reversal of fortunes is most welcomed by the Coal Merchants/ Smokeless Fuel Suppliers.

Dublin Coal Merchant, Robert Hudson of Crumlin Fuel Depot said “Last winter we saw the return of many of our customers who had previously changed to gas or oil”. He continues “your Open Fire will not only provide a Warm and Welcoming Focal Point for the whole family on these cold and damp evenings, it can also help you to manage those ever increasing heating bills”. “Even those who continue to occassionally use their gas or oil systems have noticed that enjoying the Warm and Friendly Ambiance of their Cosy Open Fire each evening or over the weekend can hugely reduce the demand on their main supply and minimise those unexpected heating bills that pop up every couple of months”. Robert concluded by saying “There has never been a better time to enjoy the cosy comfort of a Real Coal Fire”.

A big plus for many people in Dublin who are using their open fire is the fact that they can very often arrange a smaller more manageable Smokeless Fuel Delivery directly to their homes. And then their stock of fuel is right there for them to see, fully paid for.  They can easily monitor what they are using each week, no worries about unexpected bills, no nasty surprises. Indeed the improved quality, high heat output, low emissions Smokeless Fuel available today is more than enough to fill your home with a lasting warmth that doesn’t instantly disappear with the click of a timer.
