    People in Kilkenny ........in social housing ........were forced to accept wood-burning pellet stoves in their parlors.. which cost 84 euro a week to run........ which belch smoke and dust.... when they work..... are never serviced and are very often broken down at the coldest days of the year. The stoves take up as much as 50% of the room where they are installed. Noisey, dirty and filthy mosters.

    Whats a parlor? A pensioners living room?

    They sound like a disaster but proper wood pellet stoves can be very effective

    Maybe....... in your garden shed... but not in your parlor/sitting room/lounge...... depending how grand you feel!

    There was a disaster along these lines in Wexford County, I remember. Would you be able to post a working link on this ?

    There is a long history, not only in Ireland, of social housing being poorly insulated and given very inefficient and expensive heating systems.

    The worst I ever heard of was electric fires mounted on the ceilings in the U.K.

    In Ireland a young woman died of hypothermia in a Dublin City Council flat. The block was pulled down too quickly for any independent engineer's report to be done: I never heard of any compensation being paid to her orphaned son.

    Nowadays, having the central heating turned on is a new indicator for 'middle class'.

    The link works ok when I click on it here http://www.rte.ie/radio/utils/radiop...A20-01-2016%3A You need to RTE Realplayer installed.

    The point of the thread is .......we get a lot of propaganda for renewable forms of energy....... and the down sides are buried by the fanatics.

    If you provide the name of the programme, and date, people can search for it.

    Not sure how renewable commercially harvested timber is - there must be quite a bit of nutrient and top soil loss.
