Defra Approved Multi Fuel Stoves

Multi-fuel stoves approved by DEFRA permit burning wood or smokeless fuels inside areas that are smoke-free. They provide clean combustion, low emissions and a wide range of styles to suit any home.

Defra (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) regulations prohibit the release of dark smoke from chimneys within Smoke Control Areas, without an exempt device or authorised fuel.

Efficient combustion

Multi-fuel stoves that have been approved by Defra are used in many homes because they provide efficient heating and an extremely low carbon footprint. They can be used with different types of fuel such as logs and smokeless coal. These models also provide the ability to control the flame which allows you to achieve the perfect burn from your wood burning stove.

This is crucial as it ensures that the minimum amount of ash gets produced and will help keep your chimney clean. This also means that your fire will keep heating for [Redirect-302] longer without needing to be refuelled. This means that you will save money over the long run and be able to enjoy your fire without worrying about the condition of your chimney.

Stoves that are Defra approved have been tested to make sure they meet the efficiency and emissions requirements. They are typically marked with ‘Defra approved or ‘SE for Smoke Exempt’, making them the safest option when buying a stove for your house.

You can find a wide selection of DEFRA approved stoves in our online store, which has everything from modern to classic designs. For example, the Gallery Classic 5 Compact multi-fuel stove is a classic style that is perfect for cottages and other rustic cabins while the Stovax Stockton 3 and Go Eco Excel Wide are both ideal for modern rooms.

The ESSE 700 Vista DEFRA approved multi-fuel stove is a different option that has been developed with a modern look in mind. It offers an advanced clean Air stoves burn system that reduces the nitrogen oxide and sulphur dioxide emissions, while the stainless steel body will ensure that it lasts for years. It has an energy rating of A and a 78.5 per cent efficiency. It is able to quickly warm a large area by using kiln dried logs.

There’s also an array of colors for your new multi-fuel stove including neutral shades like cream and black. Bold colours like red and green can also add a striking appearance to your home. Metallic finishes can give your home an appearance that is modern. You can select the stove with an enamel coating if you want a subtle look. This will give you an elegant, shiny surface that is easy to clean and will complement any interior colour scheme.

Reduced emissions

In addition to being environmentally green, Defra approved multi fuel stoves help to reduce emissions within the home. The main pollutant emitted by burning solid fuels such as coal and wood is ultra-fine particulate matter commonly referred to as PM2.5. Fine particles can enter the lungs, causing respiratory ailments and even heart disease.

Fortunately, the latest DEFRA approved multi fuel stoves have been designed to reduce levels of this harmful gas. The Stove Yard offers a large selection of stoves that are SIA Ecodesign-compliant and have been thoroughly tested to ensure they operate far below the latest manufacturing standard of 3g/hour for appliances that are installed in smoke control areas. We also have several models that are endorsed by clearSkies an independent scheme that provides more reductions in emissions.

If you reside in an area under Smoke Control, you must only use seasoned and well-dried wood to avoid excessive smoke. However, if you do intend to use fossil fuels in your multi-fuel stove, there are plenty of alternatives to smokeless that can help to significantly reduce the amount of harmful gases your stove releases.

The latest DEFRA approved stoves, such as those we carry offer a secondary and tertiary combustion system to further reduce their users’ carbon footprint and air pollution levels. These systems help to burn more volatile gases created by solid fuels, such as wood, and convert them into heat energy. You will use less fuel to achieve the same temperature and reduce the cost of fuel.

Although this is a fantastic feature of DEFRA approved multi-fuel stoves, it is important to know that Defra approved stoves don’t provide the same time of burning as non-Defra stoves. This is due to the fact that an ongoing supply of secondary and third-party combustion air is required to keep the fuel from burning. This is why, if plan to make use of your stove for sleeping burning (i.e overnight burning) then the Defra Approved stove won’t allow you to extend your fuel supply as much as a non-Defra model would.

Conforms to regulations on smoke control

DEFRA approved wood-burning stoves can be used in smoke control zones (check online to see whether you are in one). In areas with smoke control the emissions from log burners are restricted to prevent nuisance smoke. This helps to prevent the release into the air of harmful substances which could cause a disturbance to neighbors or cause health issues for people living close to. It is essential to use an DEFRA approved stove in a smoke controlled area is important to avoid fines when the stove is found to be emitting excessive quantities of smoke.

Smoke control zones are usually urban areas with a large population density, such as cities and towns with large populations. The primary purpose of smoke control regulations is to ensure air quality standards by limiting the emission of particulates into the air. Multi-fuel stoves endorsed by Defra comply with the regulations and have been certified to ensure low emissions. This is crucial to ensure the health and safety for people who live in these areas.

It is also important to remember that smoke-free stoves should only be used with approved fuels, such as dry well-seasoned and well-seasoned firewood. It is illegal to burn damp or wet wood in a smoke control zone as they can produce excessive smoke. Burning household waste like old furniture, pallets or fencing is also illegal as they have likely been treated with chemicals that can release pollutants into the air after being burned. Selecting firewood with a moisture content of 20% or less is recommended to avoid excessive emissions and ensure that the stove is operating properly. The Woodsure Ready to Burn scheme is a great option to purchase firewood with this requirement in mind.

A DEFRA approved stove can run on a variety of different fuels, meaning you don’t need to alter your chimney to enjoy a warm fire. It is crucial to remember that your stove needs regular maintenance and cleaning in order to function efficiently. If you neglect to maintain your stove regularly, it will be less effective at reducing emissions and could damage the chimney’s flue system or chimney.

Wood-burning stoves are now a popular alternative to gas heaters due to the fact that they are more environmentally friendly and cost-effective. Wood-burning stoves make use of peat, wood and turf briquettes which are low in carbon emissions. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, which is then released into the atmosphere when they are burned. They are therefore carbon neutral and decrease the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
