Bay Area Air Quality Management District Seeking to Ban Wood-Burning Fireplaces

NBC Bay Area

In a move sure to draw fire from homeowners, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District wants to ban the sale of all homes with wood-burning fireplaces.

To rent or sell homes, homeowners would have to replace their wood fireplaces with gas ones. The ban would also extend to fireplaces in all new homes.  

The new measure could take effect as soon as this November. So far there’s no timetable on a vote, but starting this week the district is holding public meetings to get community input.
