Wood Burning Stoves

Why Wood Fuel Is Good for the Planet

Wood fuel is good for the planet.  Wood, is a sustainable, renewable resource and one of a variety of fuels referred to as biomass. As a renewable source it contributes to an eco-friendly lifestyle and help to tackle climate change. One of the great spin-offs is that by using wood fuel you contribute to the active management of local woodlands, which has a really positive impact on wildlife. The key benefit of this process is letting light in so a wide variety of animals and plants can thrive in the forest.

Using natural, renewable resources for fuel is particularly good if you live ‘off the gas grid’ in the countryside and can replace oil or other expensive heating fuels in your home. As always it makes most sense that your house is as snug as possible to save on gas and electricity bills and avoid heating the air outside.


Health Risks

The smoke from a wood-burning stove releases pollutants, mainly in the form of toxic gases and particle pollution. It may not seem it, but this is toxic waste. It sticks to your chimney as creosote and is released into the air.

Creosote is a gummy, foul-smelling combustible chemical residue that is produced when wood gases are not completely burned. Too much creosote can create a chimney fire. Old or poorly installed wood-burning stoves pose a higher risk of smoke emission, an increase in air pollution, and greater risk of house fires.

You should never smell smoke from your wood stove. If you do, this means that it is not operating safely and should be serviced.


How to get the Most Heat from Your Fire and Fuel

To get the most heat out of your fuel whilst lowering the risk of a chimney fire through creosote build up in your chimney you will need to burn bright, hot fires, the added benefit of this is that it will also reduce air pollution. When burning wood as a fuel, there should always be flames until the fire reaches it third and final phase of combustion, the embers or charcoal stage.

When refuelling a wood fire pull the embers or charcoals from the back of the fire to the front nearest the air supply whether it is the hearth front or front of the fire box of a wood burning or multi-fuel stove or fire insert.  This also provides the ideal opportunity to remove ash if need be.
