West Country Firewood ensures wood fuel is Ready to Burn

As a local provider of wood fuel, West Country Firewood is making it easy for customers to find wood fuels that have been certified as Ready to Burn and that meet new legal requirements that come into force from 1st May 2021 in England.

Under the new Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020 that will apply in England from 1 May 2021, wood fuel sold in volumes under 2 cubic metres will need to be certified as Ready to Burn. The new regulations aim to prevent harmful pollution from domestic burning of all solid fuels by ensuring wood sold in volumes of under 2 cubic metres is certified as having a moisture content of 20% or less. Customers buying loose wood in quantities of 2 cubic metres or more must be given advice on how to store and season the fuel, this will give them confidence that the wood they are burning is suitably dry before use.

The DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) Ready to Burn certification scheme is run by Woodsure. Woodsure is a non-profit organisation striving to raise the quality of wood fuel in the industry. For the past four years, Woodsure has been leading the way in championing the use of less polluting dry wood which is verified by its independent inspectors as having a moisture content of 20% less, meaning it burns with less smoke than wetter wood.

West Country Firewood customers can be confident that the wood fuel being sold is ready for immediate use by looking for the Ready to Burn logo along with the supplier’s name and unique Ready to Burn certification number.

“The Ready to Burn certification scheme makes it easier than ever for people to identify fuels that meet legal requirements, so they can have complete confidence in what they’re buying.”

Press Release - Is your chimney ready for winter?

With summer drawing to a close, and the evenings starting to get noticeably cooler you might be tempted to light a fire, rather than put the central heating on. Are you sure your chimney is clean and ready to light?From the 7-13 September, Chimney Fire Safety Week takes place providing a timely reminder to make sure that your chimney is ready for the winter months ahead. Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service are supporting this Fire Kills campaign by encouraging householders to ensure their chimney is safe and swept by a registered chimney sweep. Marc House, Community Safety Prevention Manager explains: “Now the cooler evenings have arrived, people will begin to start using open fires and their chimneys again. In order to keep you and your family safe from fire, you need to take necessary steps such as ensuring your chimney is swept regularly and I would urge all householders to have a working smoke alarm in their home.” Open fires not only warm up a home, but also create a unique relaxing ambience. With the numbers of people using open fires growing, the Fire Kills campaign has provided some top tips for safer chimneys.

• Always use a fire guard to protect against flying sparks from hot embers

• Make sure embers are properly put out before you go to bed

• Keep chimneys and flues clean and well maintained

Marc adds: “Latest statistics show that there were 6,000 chimney fires in England in 2013/14, but most chimney fires are preventable. “All chimneys and flue-ways should be cleaned and checked to ensure they’re free from debris and in full working order before your central heating goes on. A blocked or defective chimney can cause both chimney fires and carbon monoxide poisonings so it’s very important to employ a professional qualified Chimney Sweep.”To request free Home Safety advice call free on: now 0800 0502999.
