What is a DEFRA approved stove?

December 4th at 12:00am

DEFRA (Department of Environment, Farming and Rural Affairs) state that in certain urban and built-up areas in the UK, wood cannot be burnt as a fuel due to the smoke and pollution created.

However, if you install a DEFRA approved stove, you are able to burn exempt fuels including wood.

It is important to remember that each stove has a list of exempt fuels. Please check that wood is listed and safe to burn on your stove. Around 90% of the wood-burning stoves we supply are DEFRA approved.
