Ecodesign Ready stoves and Air Quality
The future of stoves has come. Now available at Farmhouse Stoves!
Farmhouse Stoves are backing the installation of SIA Ecodesign Ready stoves to reduce emissions from wood burning.
Our eco-ready stoves are designed to reduce PM emissions by burning wood more efficiently and completely.
The stoves have been independently tested by an approved test laboratory and met the emissions and minimum efficiency criteria for Ecodesign.
Ecodesign is the European-wide programme to lower emissions. It is due to come into force for stoves in the UK in 2022.Our stoves will meet the Ecodesign requirements and are available now.
In its Clean Air Strategy, Farmhouse Stoves recognises that all wood burning is not the same and that reductions in particulate emissions, (PM), can be achieved through the installation of Ecodesign Ready stoves burning Ready to Burn logs.
The Farmouse Stoves Clean Air Strategy
Farmhouse Stoves has a strict low-emission policy when it comes to wood burning.
Stove owners and those thinking of buying a new stove can be assured that the government is not seeking to ban wood burning stoves. Instead it wants to ensure that consumers use the cleanest stoves and the cleanest fuel.
The Clean Air Strategy recognises that all wood burning is not the same and that reductions in particulate emissions, (PM), can be achieved through the installation of Ecodesign Ready stoves burning Ready to Burn logs that have a moisture content below 20%.
The government has also recognised that maintenance and the way in which householder operates the stove have a significant part to play in the reduction of emissions.
What it means to have a Farmhouse Stove
In order to qualify for your stove to be eco, it has to have been independently tested by an approved lab and met the emissions criteria for Ecodesign.
The test results then must be verified by HETAS. The stove will then be listed on the HETAS web site.
Farmhouse Stoves will meet the DEFRA exemption criteria but the stove must still be tested for DEFRA exemption, until Ecodesign becomes law in 2022, in order to be used is a smoke control area.
Ecodesign is the European-wide programme to lower emissions. It is due to come into force in the UK in 2022. The main manufacturers have decided to release stoves that will meet the lower emission limits now, five years early.
Independent tests have shown that an Ecodesign Ready stove produces 90% fewer emissions than an open fire and 84% fewer than a stove of ten years ago.
The Ecodesign Ready scheme is verified by Hetas and supported by Farmhouse Stoves.
