With Winter well and truly making its presence known, many of us are now making our homes cosy with wood fires and heaters. Did you know that not managing your fire and chimney properly can cause issues and health risks associated with excess smoke?

If you use a wood heater you can reduce smoke pollution and help your neighbours to breathe easier. Simply follow these steps to burn your wood heater brighter, warmer and cleaner, this winter:

- Always burn with a flame - don't let your fire smoulder
- After reloading, open the air control and burn your fire on high for 20 minutes, especially before going to bed
- Only burn dry, seasoned wood
- Ensure your flue is clean

For more info, including a step by step guide to getting the most out of your fire, see the Burn Brighter this Winter poster below.
