Domestic heating appliances such as woodburning stoves and open fires can have an effect on local air pollution. The Burn Right website has been created to provide information and guidance on best practice techniques to help reduce their effect. 

In addition, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has published a practical guide on open fires and wood-burning stoves.
