Woodburning and Multi-fuel Stoves

Heating the home, and also cooking with wood is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to gas and electricity. Recently, we have experienced unprecedented levels of demand from home owners seeking to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels, their bills and their carbon emissions.

Wood burning stoves are one of the most natural forms of alternative heating system available. If you are looking for a low-tech localised space heating solution for your home then why not consider a wood burning stove? Despite progress in modern technology, wood stoves are still one of the cheapest and most popular solutions for heating homes today. Sales of wood stoves are booming for this very reason.

Increase your fireplace´s efficiency (plus its beauty) by installing a wood burning stove. Even if you live in a smoke-controlled area, there´s nothing to stop you joining the Wood burning Stove revolution! Most stoves can´t be used to burn wood in smoke-controlled areas - but there are a growing number considered to be so super-clean-burning they are given an exemption from the controls.

Logs may only be burnt on stoves that have been granted exemption from the regulations by the government through DEFRA. Exempt appliances are appliances (ovens, wood burners and stoves) which have been exempted by Statutory Instruments (Orders) under the clean air act 1993 or clean air order 1981 (Northern Ireland). These have passed tests to confirm that they are capable of burning an unauthorised or inherently smoky solid fuel without emitting smoke.

If you are unsure whether or not you live in a smoke controlled area, then you can check with your local council or visit: http://www.uksmokecontrolareas.co.uk/locations.php

Wood stoves can be added without a fireplace, of course. There are many types of wood stoves on the market today, choosing from the many styles, models and options can be a difficult task, so don't be affraid to ask!
