Why Use Hotmax?

No Resin Build-up

Wet or damp firewood has a low calorific content and tends to burn at a temperature that is too low to combust its resin content.

Instead, the resin will evaporate, and then condense and solidify in the colder environment of the flue or chimney. HOTMAX fuel logs generate high levels of heat that burn off any resins or other natural residues, so HOTMAX will not cause the accretion of resin or tar in flues and chimneys.

Consistent Quality

The quality and energy value of coal and firewood vary widely. HOTMAX offers consistent quality and performance midway between high quality coal and good, seasoned hardwood.



With a very low moisture content and high calorific value, HOTMAX Fuel Logs generate high levels of heat very quickly. We advise new users to begin with small amounts until familiar with its performance!

Tips for firelighting

Each bag of HOTMAX contains a variety of 'log' lengths. We recommend that you use a few of the smallest to light a fire. You can easily break larger logs into smaller sizes if you need to. With HOTMAX, no kindling is required.

HETAS Approved

HOTMAX has recently earned a certificate of approval from HETAS and Woodsure Plus. These are two independent bodies set up in the UK to test the safety and performance of all equipment and fuel used to heat homes and buildings.
