IS THE GOVERNMENT BANNING WOOD BURNING STOVES? ANSWER.....NO!
Despite recent media reports, there are no proposals to ban wood burning stoves. DEFRA has included wood burning stoves in their Clean Air Strategy, and they are recommending installing Ecodesign Ready stoves and using "Ready to Burn" wood fuel to ensure that only the cleanest and most efficient wood burning stoves are sold. From Jan 2022 only Ecodesign wood burning stoves will be available for sale.
You can easily see the stoves that meet the Ecodesign targets thanks to the SIA Ecodesign Label they display. The Stove Industry Alliance's Eco design Ready Scheme independently verifies each stove to meet these emission targets.
