Wood burning stove with roaring fire. Stove installation by Dyfed Chimneys

Environmental concerns, air quality and stoves as a heat source.

The media and certain small unqualified organisations have recently caused quite a stir about wood-burning and multi-fuel stoves. Firstly, let’s put a few facts straight.

Air quality
Open fires, which are very different to stoves, and poor burning methods are the main culprits in terms of air pollution. Since 2022 all new wood-burning and multi-fuel stoves comply with high efficiency standards to ensure low emissions. Use of only seasoned wood or approved fuels and regular sweeping is essential in terms of air quality.

Sustainable fuel
Wood is a renewable energy source. In our local rural area, many households rely on woodburners for heating and there is often a source of fuel from owned or nearby land. This reduces dependence on non-renewable options such as oil and bottled gas, or unreliable electric alternatives such as air-source heat pumps. By responsibly managing woodlands and harvesting naturally fallen trees, landowners can provide themselves with carbon-neutral fuel, as well as generate surplus wood to supply locally. This creates a sustainable and environmentally friendly cycle, benefiting both the community and the planet. 

Wood burning produces 0.008kg of CO2 per kWh compared to 0.198kg for gas and 0.517kg for electricity, according to the Stove Industry Alliance, and wood logs cost 13% less than an air source heat pump.

Traditional coal has now been banned due to high particulate matter. kiln dried logs are promoted but it is not necessary for wood to be kiln dried, it is only essential for logs to be dry (below 20% moisture, with around 15% being optimal) which can be achieved just as well in the traditional way. Logs must be stored under cover in a well-ventilated area.
Here at Dyfed Chimneys, we understand the importance of wood-burning and multi-fuel stoves in a rural area. They provide an independent source of heat, the only option for many, and a comforting and stress reducing atmosphere in our homes. 

Beyond our installation and maintenance services, we offer professional and free advice to all our customers on the best practices for correct drying and storage of harvested wood fuel. We believe that by promoting this carbon-neutral and locally sourced method of heating, we play a crucial role in fostering a healthier planet and a sustainable future for rural Wales.
