I am now very sick. Acute bronchitis. I don't think it will ever get better. The wood boiler has been down a few days, but it will be back on again soon. It is killing us and out dog. We will have to move.

We are trying to deal with an outdoor wood boiler.
It's horrible. It was warm last night and today, but we can't open a window or use our yard.
My husband took our dog out, and they both came in smelling like the inside of a chimney. Our screened in porch reeks of a creasote smell, as does the entire fenced in back yard.
What is wrong with our government allowing this polution?
We are prisoners in our own home, being poisoned by toxic fumes. Do we really have to sacrifice our lives to help someone get cheaper hot water?
Add to that someone that was heating their pool water in the spring time, and someone nearby with a fire pit.
It's now 12:30, and we noticed the smoke pouring out of the stack at 3:00 pm. The air outside is barely breathable.
But what am I to do? I have to let my dog out. I can't bear to think of the damage that this smoke is doing to her lungs.
I'm not opposed to wood burning, I have a fireplace, and used to have a woodstove.
I have cancer, and currently have pneumonitis. I have lived in the same place for 31 years and never had a smoke problem until last winter.

We must all do our part to clean up the environment. These need to be regulated or banned! I have the right to enjoy my property without smelly smoke and worrying about my health. These should be banned like cigarette smoke.......I choose not to burn wood in my house because of the health risks. Why should I be subject to the same health risks because my neighbor wants to save money on his heating bills or heat his pool in the summer. Something has to be done!

Keep up the good work! Yours is the best news source on OWBs we have. People are unaware of the health dangers of their ill-chosen heating source.

I have a problem with OWBs and wood stoves, which both create putrid smoke. I am not on anyone's payroll, nor affiliated with any groups other than those fighting for clean air. Smoke is smoke, regardless of where it is emitted from. OWBs create more smoke, but when exposed to wood stove smoke, the results are also lethal, as any wood smoke can contain the same contaminants. I became seriously ill last fall from my next door neighbor's wood stove smoke that entered my home through closed windows. He burned almost 24/7 beginning in mid October when the temps were in the upper 60's. In damp, warm weather, any wood smoke hugs the ground. His smoke surrounded my home for months, until I finally asked him to stop, which, thank goodness he did. Because by then my nose and respiratory system were infected with staph, due to inhalation of wood smoke. It tore my nose, throat and lungs apart. Please visit my website for more info: There are photos you can see for yourself.
Freedom Of Air - this is a great site. Will you link with me?

Whoops. My apologies to all. I thought this site was trying to ban all wood burning. I see now it is about outdoor wood smokers - a totally different thing. These things don't burn wood, they smolder wood and make uneeded pollution. Keep up the good fight here. Jon.
