Government Clean Air Strategy

Government Clean Air Strategy

The plan is to tackle domestic air pollution by targeting old and inefficient wood-burning stoves and open fires, but this is ensuring only the cleanest stoves are available for sale from 2022, prohibiting the sale of the most polluting fuels; including coal and wet wood.

Wood moisture content is key to this, as you should only used dry wood and from a reliable source.

If it has a high moisture content, then there’s an increase in smoke, therefore emissions, which produce less heat, as well as being unfriendly to the environment. This also makes the stove less efficient and adds more soot to both the stove and the chimney, in the same way as a smoking oven is less efficient and more difficult to clean, or a misfiring car is causing issues to its engine.

Chimney Services North East always supplied the most modern, efficient stoves and log burners for all installations.
