People have been using fire to provide heat for thousands of years. However, a lot has changed since the time of the open fires used by our ancestors. Storch fireplace stoves and inserts use a highly sophisticated modern combustion system that guarantees an environmentally friendly solution to heating.
Burning wood produces a similar amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) to the decomposition of wood in a forest. The environment is therefore not burdened by excessive carbon dioxide production. This means that burning wood does not increase the greenhouse effect like other fossil fuels - coal, oil or gas. Furthermore, wood is a renewable energy source, while coal, oil and gas have limited supplies.
Storch manufactures environmentally friendly stoves and inserts that meet the strictest environmental standards. All STORCH fireplace heating units are tested in compliance with valid legal regulations and EN 13 240 and EN 13 229 (European standard). Because they comply with the European technical standard, all our stoves and inserts are marked CE “Conformité Européenne”. Products with this label come with a guarantee of not only a lower negative impact on the environment, but also of high quality.
