The Fonds Air Bois financial assistance is aimed at all individuals who wish toreplace their wood-burning appliance (pre-2002 or open fireplace) in their primary residence (completed more than 2 years ago) located in one of the 41 communes within the Arve Valley Atmosphere Protection Plan. The old wood-burning appliance can be replaced by a more efficient appliance or by a thermal renewable energy with a heating function.

It is also a reminder that as of January 1, 2022, the use of open fireplaces is banned! This ban concerns all open hearth wood-burning appliances (an open hearth wood-burning appliance is considered to be any fireplace or installation whose hearth burns wood freely without an enclosure designed to confine combustion to improve efficiency), including auxiliary or amenity ones, whatever the type of housing (primary residences, second homes, tourist accommodation, …) or the type of public and private building.
