Open fires and old, inefficient wood burners are contributors to poor air quality. New legislation is coming in 2022 to ensure we all burn cleanly in our home and for many years, the stove industry has been making huge improvements to the design of wood burning stoves to reduce their emissions.
Eco Design ready stoves are here now and enable us to choose a carbon neutral alternative to fossil fuels for heating our homes while also burning cleanly. Well seasoned wood is also essential. Look out for the Ready to Burn logo.
