As you can easily see from the graph below wood is the clear winner when compared to these other fuels in terms of how much CO2 is emitted when heating with wood. Wood fuel results in FAR lower CO2 emissions when compared to oil, gas, coal or electricity. The CO2 that does result from wood heating is down to the harvesting, processing, and transport of the wood. Actually burning the wood in itself is carbon neutral (as long as the wood is sustainably sourced).
