The problem of air pollution, resulting from the occurrence of so-called low emission concerns many localities in Poland and Europe. The main reasons for such a situation is burning of fuels for central heating and domestic hot water in buildings, as well as the burning of fuels in the transport sector. It should be noted that in the case of building heat management, frequently this is the result of a lack of access to the heating and gas network. This is one of the reasons hindering sustainable development opportunities. The article presents calculations of combustion products emissions into the atmosphere (TSP, CO, NOx, SOx,) from individual heat sources in households for the commune which does not have the above mentioned infrastructure. The purpose of the analysis was to present the environmental impact of changes in the structure of heat generation and improvement of the effectiveness of the devices used. In addition, the proposed calculation model can be used by municipalities, allowing the assessment of ecological effects of undertaken actions.
