We’re all doing our best to go greener: we’re recycling our rubbish, walking instead of driving, buying local and relying more on renewable energy. It’s not all good news though; global carbon emissions are still rising, 2012 saw a 2.6% increase from 2011, so there is still work to be done. Here at Fusion Heating we’re finding solutions to keep cutting carbon in the environment which is why we specialise in solid fuel stoves; we believe they are the greenest option for your home, and here’s why:
1.Greener Than the Competition
Solid fuel burning stoves are better for the environment than their popular competitors. Unlike gas, coal and electric systems wood burning releases no more CO2 than if the wood were left to biodegrade naturally.
Unlike fossil fuels which take centuries to be replenished, wood reserves are easily restocked both naturally and through commercial forestry, meaning there is no risk of running out. In the appropriate dry conditions wood can be stored for years so your personal stocks aren’t in constant need of refilling.
The CO2 emitted by burning wood is matched to the amount used by the growing tree, so no extra carbon is being released into the atmosphere through burning.
4.Better Than the Alternative
When wood is left to rot it produces methane gas which is known to do 20 times more damage to the environment then the CO2 released from burning; wood is naturally occurring and necessary for the environment so burning it to reduce its negative impact is a greener solution.
5.Wood is in Abundance
Annually in the UK there is approximately 20 million tonnes of renewable wood available, and the government hopes to increase this by 4% by making the woodland cover of the UK as high as 16%. With stocks of wood thriving it is now the cheapest form of heating energy.
Wood burning stoves are an environmentally friendly and cost effective way to heat your home. Our diverse range will suit any living space, from the traditional to the modern.

Wood burning Stoves & Fireplaces can provide you with Carbon Neutral Energy
Wood burning is better in environmental terms as the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is the same as that absorbed by the tree during growth.
It is also a renewable resource, particularly when derived from plantations and cultivated woodland. When using your wood burning stove, for optimum results, we recommend logs should be seasoned for 2 years or more to achieve a moisture content below 20%. This will not only give up to twice the output of freshly felled timber but help avoid a build up of tar in your stove’s flue.
Furthermore, if you can obtain hardwood logs this is better still, as they will have around twice the calorific value of softwoods.
This is a photograph (above) through the glass of an advanced technology wood burning stove, one that is CE certified and HETAS accredited. Note that the flames are big, lush and semi-transparent, very different from the dark, opaque, ragged flames you would see in an open fireplace., one that is CE certified and HETAS accredited.

The small jets and feathery flames at the top of the image are flowing downward from the tiny combustion air holes at the top of the firebox.
Not only does this modern wood burning stove burn much cleaner and more efficiently than older conventional stoves, but the view of the fire is just spectacular.
By upgrading to a CE certified and HETAS accredited wood burning stove, you can save wood, reduce smoke and enjoy the view all winter long.
Carbon Neutral Benefits
The Forestry Commission have recommended that millions of trees are planted to cover an extra 4% of the UK in woodland, equivalent to 30,000 football pitches a year, increasing the UK’s total woodland cover to 16%.
According to the Solid Fuel Technology Institute, logs are the cheapest form of heating energy. The cost per kW of useful energy is now around 4p. This compares to 5p for anthracite, 7p for natural gas, 7.5p for oil, 9p for LPG and 12p for electricity.Posted in Latest News | January 5, 2013
