Cosying up in front of a wood-burning stove on a wintry Sunday afternoon or a cold evening is a delight. And knowing that you are burning a non-fossil, carbon-neutral fuel helps the inner warm glow too.
But what are the real environmental benefits? It turns out that, in cities at any rate, wood-burning enthusiasts could actually be causing air-pollution problems.
The third in the ‘Energy-chic home’ series from the Highgate Society’s Sustainable Homes group will tackle this issue head on, along with other forms of heating such as air-source heat pumps. There too, the practice may not always live up to the theory.
These topical issues will be chaired by Cara Jenkinson a council member of the Highgate Society and will feature:
Jon Cowdrill of JoJu – Solar – PV and Thermal
Edward Sharpley of Franck Energy – Air Source and Ground Heat Pumps
Stewart McIlroy of the Muswell Hill Sustainability Group – Wood Burning Stoves
