It’s that time of year! Winter's approaching and wood heaters will start to fire up. But what can you do to eliminate unnecessary air pollution?
When they're used incorrectly wood burning heaters emit more pollutants/smoke and use fuel inefficiently.
Here's some simple rules to get a hot fire burning quickly and efficiently.
Check chimney for smoke, if there is smoke coming out of chimney, your heater is not burning efficiently, some light smoke should not last longer than 20 mins.
Never let your fire smoulder overnight.
Store it under a roof to keep it dry. Stack wood loosely off the ground in a criss-cross manner.
