Fuel beds for electric fires.1. The majority of customers we have spoke to that consider having an electric fire would typically opt for a coal fuel bed as it is customary to burn coal rather than pebbles. However coal is dark and has a solid colour that does not let light pass through it. For that reason, many customers that have seen electric fires with a pebble fuel bed would often prefer it to coal alternatives.
2. The vast majority of electric fires have an independent fuel bed, which means you can simply change the pebble to coal as it is loose and free standing. With almost all electric fires it is simply a case of purchasing independent loose pebble or coal and simply putting this onto of your electric fire.
