Wood heat is the best heat without a doubt, however the many disadvantages of having to collect wood and light messy fires are well known and hence the recent trend to more convenient forms of heating derived from gas and coal. But these are fossil fuels and the effect on our environment is well accepted.
So the answer is a wood pellet fire which produces the same heat as a wood fire but is fueled by waste sawdust in the form of pellets, derived from the milling of plantation timber. This means that native trees are not cut down just to provide home heating and as the fuel comes from plantation timber only, and we know that new trees are being planted all the time, it follows that the carbon emissions from burning pellets are brought back by the new trees.
This can be measured and audited and thus the use of this fuel is carbon neutral!!
In fact , it is better still, because these fires produce up to 10kw of heat which means that the equivalent amount of gas and coal stays safely underground thus reducing emissions even further.
