Wood Burning Stove Emissions

When one thinks of wood stoves, something that may spring to mind is smoke. It is true that all wood stoves, even the most efficient ones, produce some smoke. And air pollution is certainly a major concern these day everywhere, but especially in localities with the most unhealthful levels of air pollution. I happen to live in the region with the worst air pollution in the United States of America, the San Joaquin Valley of California. The main cause is that air pollution from a variety of sources, especially automobiles, is emitted — particularly in the dry season from May to November — but it is not often removed from the air by precipitation nor by wind in the relatively still air of the Valley, which is hemmed in by two mountain chains.

Night Time Care Of Your Wood Burning Stove: Putting It To Sleep


Join our large (and growing) community of food-lovers on Facebook. We are regularly inspired by members of this positive community. Come be inspired too.

An especially helpful feature of modern, airtight wood stoves is that you can “put them to sleep” for the night. That is, you can shut wood stoves nearly airtight, fill them with logs set atop a bed of coals and let the logs slowly combust over a full eight hours, leaving a bed of hot embers with which you can easily start a fire when you awake in the morning.

In the old days, when wood stoves were not airtight, you would either have to wake up in the middle of the night to put in additional logs or you would simply have to start a new fire in the morning from scratch, without having a coal of warm embers to start it. One night I simply forgot to put my wood stove to sleep and this happened to me.
