Wood burning stoves and open fires
Open fires and wood-burning stoves have risen in popularity over recent years. This means we now see more smoke from chimneys which has a negative effect on air quality. This can cause breathing problems such as asthma attacks and contribute to other health conditions.
Check out DEFRA's leaflet Open fires and wood-burning stoves - a practical guide which provides advice for those that use wood burning stoves or open fires to reduce environmental and health impacts.
