Woodburning stoves and the environment

Whatever we do in today’s world has an impact on the environment in some way. So, thinking about woodburning stoves and the environment. One way to contribute to a reduced environmental impact is to choose a modern stove with efficient woodburning design.

Light an environmentally-friendly fire

The first step is to choose a modern stove.  Modern stoves today have an efficiency of over 80%.  This compared to an open fire at 30% and a stove produced ten years ago, with an average efficiency of 65%. Efficiency varies by manufacturer so look for an EcoDesign ready stove.

The efficiency of the appliance impacts on the amount of wood required, as shown in this diagram . Significantly fewer logs are required in an Ecodesign Ready stove. Saving money and reducing emissions.

Installing a wood burning stove for space and water heating can help you be more energy efficient and reduce your carbon footprint.

CO2 neutral stoves from Contura

A Contura stove is CO2 neutral, because the quantity of carbon dioxide produced during the efficient combustion of bioenergy is taken up when new trees grow. By lighting, you get a natural supporting heat in the house, which relieves the load on the house’s main heating. It benefits both you and the environment.
