In Poland there are over 5 million single-family homes, mostly poorly insulated or non-insulated at all. Poles heat them using outdated and low–efficient coal-fired boilers in which coal is burned repeatedly with the worst quality. The consequence of this is the sorry state of the air in our country. Home heating is a major source of pollution particulate matter, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, heavy metals and dioxins.
We especially recommend to you the report of the unique nationwide studies examining patterns of use of heat and thermo approach in houses. The study was conducted by CEM Research Institute of Market and Public Opinion on behalf of the Institute of Economics of the Environment on a representative sample of 500 randomly selected single-family home-owners.
