Q and A on Stoves and wood fuels

Following a lot of misinformation about stoves and wood fuels we have updated our website to ensure that customers are fully aware of the situation.

Wood burning stoves continue to provide a carbon neutral way of heating your home and new legislation means that strict new emmissions standards will ensure that stoves are even more efficient. The picture here reveals the real problem which is open fires and very old inefficient stoves. An new ‘eco design stove’ will produce 90% fewer particles than an open fire and 80% fewer particles than that of a ten year old stove.

As long as you are using Kiln dry logs from a sustanable source a stove is a great way to heat your home. Our Q and A page will hopefully answer your questions but if you have any queries or would like to talk to us about the new eco design stoves available through Home fires and fuels please call.
