The danger of wood burners
Home wood burning is officially the biggest cause of particle pollution in the UK, and it has been found that wood burners drive up the most dangerous forms of air pollution.
This statistic is especially worrying, as the fires are used by just 8% of the UK’s population but can triple the pollution levels of traffic.
The air inside your home can be at risk – if you use a wood burner, investing in air purification may be beneficial to your health. An air purifier can help make the air inside your home cleaner, fresher, and ultimately, much safer.
Air purifiers are also especially useful if you live on or by a busy road – ventilation via open windows can do more harm than good here.
