DON'T PANIC! KEEP CALM! The new Clean Air Strategy 2019 is a key document in tackling air pollution. The strategy identifies that "using cleaner fuels, in a cleaner appliance which is installed by a competent person, knowing how to operate it efficiently, and ensuring that chimneys are regularly swept will all make a big difference"
What does this mean to you?
- When looking to buy a woodburning or multifuel stove purchase one that has been passed to burn in a Smoke Control Zone, these burn more efficiently and cleaner than other stoves or open fires.
- Have your stove fitted by a HETAS registered installer. They have the knowledge on how to size the stove for the room and fit the stove to current regulations.
- Only buy Woodsure's "Ready to Burn" logs, these logs have been tested and passed to be able to burn straight away on your stove, without the need for seasoning or extra drying time. They have a low moisture content so will give you more heat.
We have only sold DEFRA-approved stoves since that scheme was launched, all our installers are HETAS registered and we sell only kiln dried logs and kindling, so our customers need have no worries.
