Burning solid fuels - Fuel for Thought

There’s no getting away from it: wood-burning stoves and open fires make our homes feel cosy and warm.

You might use yours to cut the cost of rising gas and electricity bills, or you might have installed a wood-burner because you thought it was a more sustainable option.

But there’s an invisible problem, burning solid fuels in your home creates pollution, and damages your health and the health of those around you.

With more people using open fires and wood-burners it’s important to take action to reduce the pollution they cause and to raise awareness of some of the dangers to health they pose.
