"Smoke from wood fires pollutes the air..."
Long shot of corner of a living room, brick fire surround, fire tools, log basket and free-standing wood heater. Wood heater speaking:
"...and wastes your money."
Closeup of wood heater arm selecting a log from log basket:
"To reduce smoke..."
Long shot of wood heater with fire box door open and arm with log lifted ready to put log in fire box:
"... feed me two or three small pieces of dry, seasoned, untreated wood."
Closeup of wood heater door closed on flames burning brightly:
"Give me enough air to keep my flame lively and bright. And don't let me smoulder overnight."
Long shot of corner of living room with wood heater and dog asleep on mat in front: logo - Our environment: it's a living thing, and logo - NSW EPA, superimposed on wood heater.
