Over the past few years, society has become more aware of the impact that it is having on our environment and this realisation has prompted many industries to change the way their services operate. In fact, the government has even started to crack down on waste and plastic pollution, too, by introducing a 5p carrier bag charge in 2015. Here at Denton Stove Centre, our focus lies within the stove industry and we believe that wood burners are one of the most eco-conscious options on the market. Read on as we go over three reasons why they are better for the environment…

Are woodburning stoves carbon neutral?

Although the stoves themselves are not considered carbon neutral, the fuels that are used within them are. This means that the firewood or logs that are burned by homeowners will only release the carbon that was absorbed throughout the trees’ lifetime back into the environment, effectively balancing the carbon cycle. As a result, they are considered a much eco-friendlier fuel choice in comparison to alternatives like fossil fuels or gas.

Why is seasoned firewood superior?

In order to make the most out of a woodburning stove, it is important that homeowners choose a high-quality fuel provider who knows how to remove moisture properly. After all, this process is known as ‘seasoning’ as it is incredibly important for both the property owner and the environment. In fact, it is ideal to have a moisture content of 20% or below as firewood is often easier to light when it holds less moisture. In addition to this, burning seasoned logs produces a hotter, more efficient and brighter fire which means that the homeowner will burn less fuel over time, saving them money and reducing any effect that may be inflicted on the environment.

Can woodburning stoves be used in Smoke Control Areas?

Following the Great Smog of London in 1952, the government introduced the Clean Air Act and vowed to tackle pollution. In fact, this led to the introduction of ‘Smoke Control Areas’ which enforce strict rules and regulations about the fuels that can be burned in certain areas and it is important that homeowners considering a stove purchase find out whether or not they are living in a designated area. Luckily, it is possible to burn firewood and logs in certified stoves that have been permitted for use, making them a wise choice for eco-friendly property owners.

Although there are many different stoves on the market, few provide the same level of ambiance as the wood burner. After all, they are elegant yet affordable and their new eco-friendly reputation means that they are practically flying off the shelf. Here at Denton Stove Centre, we have a variety of different woodburning stove designs such as free-standing, inset and even cylindrical.
