To help you stay extra warm and breathe easy during the cooler weather, it is important to use your wood heater as efficiently as possible and source dry seasoned hardwood, storing it well over the winter months.
Air pollution from wood heaters is definitely not something to share around the community, especially for kids and people with breathing issues. Responsible wood heater use and maintenance reduces wood smoke.
For more information, visit the EPA Woodsmoke website.
If you are planning to install a wood heater, contact Council to discuss any compliance requirements with our Duty Desk on 02 4868 0888 or email Council on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information can be found at NSW EPA’s Check your Heater Complies with the Standard webpage.
