No more “smokers” on the market!!!
September 5th 2017 a new law on the standard of boilers sold on the market has been published. After October 1st it will be illegal to produce boilers (coal- or wood-fired) of quality lower than 5th class. Boilers which were produced before 1st of October can be sold only until 1st of July 2018.
These are great news as we have observed a tendency to move away from heating houses with gas boilers and replacing them with coal boilers (mentioned in our report Energy efficiency in Poland 2013. Review). Now the quality of these new boilers sold on the market is very high and therefore they will not contribute so much to air pollution as the old “smokers”.
