Does the legislation affect the sale of open fires and fireplaces?

Yes, open fires and fireplaces will no longer be able to be sold as solid fuel heating appliances after 2022 due to their poor efficiency and particulate emissions. Open fires lose 80% of its valuable heat they produce up the chimney and takes with it your very expensive central heating meaning you are burning approximately 3 times the amount of fuel you need to be on your fire.

The energy in your fire will be used to try to keep the wood burning instead of being...
