This site offers information to help you choose a cleaner burning hearth appliance (e.g., gas or wood stove) and use it efficiently and safely. Roughly six percent of all fine particle pollution (PM 2.5) in the United States comes from wood smoke. In some areas where woodstove use is high, wood smoke can account for a greater share of PM 2.5. Replacing older wood stoves with EPA-certified stoves can reduce wood smoke -- by 70 percent on average.
