The Clean Air Strategy is making wood burning stoves safer for the environment! The government plans to educate consumers and introduce new measures to ensure people who already own a wood burning stove can burn cleaner fuel, resulting in fewer pollutants. Burning solid fuel reportedly produces 38% of the UK’s particulate matter emissions, with most homeowners unaware that their wood burners or open fires contribute to this.
With these new strategies now coming into place we thought it the perfect opportunity to showcase our EcoDesign stoves. The EcoDesign stoves are already compliant with the new regulations. They are specifically designed to reduce particulate matter (PM) emissions by burning wood more efficiently and completely.
There are many benefits of having an EcoDesign stove:
Reduction in Particulate Matter
Burning wood produces particulate matter (PM). The amount of PM produced from burning wood is dependent on how the wood is burnt. Research shows that Ecodesign stoves can reduce particulate emissions by 90%.
Less log usage
Due to the high efficiency of an ecodesign stove, you can expect to use fewer logs to heat your home than with a traditional wood burner.
What to look out for…
When purchasing a new stove, be sure to look out for the Ecodesign Ready label to ensure the new addition to your home is:
– The most environmentally friendly stove available today.
– Has been independently tested to prove compliance with the Ecodesign criteria.
