Wood Pellet Stoves: An environmentally friendly alternative to wood burning stove?

If you’ve been keeping up with the news of late, you’ll be aware that wood burning stoves, open fires and farms are due to face new restrictions. These new restrictions are coming into force as the UK Government sets out a ‘world leading’ plan to tackle air pollution and improve air quality in the UK.

The Government’s Clean Air Strategy promises to set a ‘bold new goal’ to reduce the current particulates across the country by 2030. The strategy looks to make our air healthier to breathe, better protect nature and boost the economy and it will do this by introducing a range of actions to reduce emissions/pollution. You can read more about the Clean Air Strategy here.

Just what does this mean for our Wood Pellet Stoves and wood burners?

For many homes, Wood Pellet Stoves provide an additional form of heating and for some, the sole heat source of the home. Bad for the environment? Well, not necessarily so. Here at Island Pellet Stoves, we’ve built our stoves with the environment in mind, to be an eco alternative to wood burning stoves in your home. Our stoves use compressed wood pellets for their solid fuel, which produce less emissions than traditional log burners, while still having an excellent high heat output, enough to heat medium sized rooms alone, supplement the heat for a larger home, or be the only source of heat for passive homes. Our pellet stoves are designed for British homes, and will easily sit in the recess from your old wood burning fireplace.

Pellet Fed Wood burning stove as an alternative to a traditional log burner

Our Lundy 5 and Lundy 8 pellet-fed wood burning stoves produce far fewer emissions than a traditional wood burning stove and are less harmful to the environment which results in a greener alternative to wood burning stoves/ovens. As an added bonus, our pellet fed wood burning stoves are designed with UK homes in mind, and won’t look out of place in your home – no better direct placement for your standard wood burning stove and log burner. Our stoves are designed to sit into a traditional fireplace arch the same way a traditional log stove does, rather than as a free standing cabinet design that other pellet stoves might use.

While our wood burning stove alternatives do produce flue emissions, these are on a much-reduced scale than that of a standard wood burner. Our stoves provide the same experience a traditional wood stove offers, including real wood flames, while still maintaining a more eco friendly level of emmissions, reducing your environmental impact without compromising on the heat output.

Wood Pellet fuel is made from sawdust and other small wood particles which are byproducts of wood milling, and might otherwise be headed for the landfill – so in addition to less pollution, our stoves also support reduced landfill.

Our stoves are already Ecodesign compliant (and have been for a while now!) they are also CO2 neutral, meaning they are an environmentally friendly method of heating your home. Our Wood Burning Pellet Stoves are also Defra approved and HETAS approved to the highest degree. The convenient remote control and large hopper for pellet fuel also means that you can have instant heat in your home whenever you need without the effort of stacking logs in a traditional wood burning stove or fireplace.
