Investing in a modern boiler that meets the highest emission standards is the first and most important step. Class 5 boilers and those with the "ECODESIGN" mark are much more efficient and emit less pollutants.
The choice of high-quality fuel, such as wood pellets, wood, eco-pea briquettes or eco-coal, significantly reduces pollutant emissions. Avoid burning waste or wet wood.
Routine boiler cleaning and maintenance is the next step in reducing emissions. This allows you to maintain combustion efficiency at an optimal level.
Ensuring the right amount of air in the combustion process and avoiding “suffocating” the fire by adding fuel too often are key elements in minimizing emissions.
Installation of particulate filters in the chimney system is an effective way to reduce the amount of dust emitted into the atmosphere.
The boiler power should be adjusted to the actual thermal needs of the building. Excessive power leads to low-temperature combustion and higher emissions.
Considering the use of additional heat sources, such as heat pumps or solar collectors, can help reduce the use of a solid fuel boiler.
Knowing and understanding the combustion process and its impact on the environment is essential. Education in this area allows for a more conscious and responsible use of the boiler.
Heating your home with a solid fuel boiler does not have to mean a heavy burden on the environment. By choosing the right boiler, following good combustion practices and using high-quality fuel, you can significantly reduce emissions. Regular maintenance of devices, use of filters and optimization of boiler operation are additional steps that are worth taking to enjoy effective and ecological heating.
