Wood burning and air quality

The smoke from wood heaters and open fireplaces can pollute the air we breathe, especially in autumn and winter.

By following some tips you can reduce smoke pollution from your wood heater.


Buying the right wood heater, and using and maintaining it well, is important for the health and safety of you and your family.


It may well also be an important issue for your neighbours. It may affect their health and enjoyment of their home and quality of life.


If your neighbour’s wood heater is producing smoke or odour that is affecting the enjoyment of your property, you can do something about it. You can lodge a complaint with council if you know the address of the property that is causing you concern.
