Right now, it’s important to many people to keep carbon emissions low and impact on the environment minimal. When you come to Calcaria Stoves, our wood-burning and multi fuel models are DEFRA stoves.
To qualify, stoves must pass DEFRA criteria for levels of emissions and smoke output. It means that flame burns with maximal oxygen, and fully – creating less smoke and harmful by-products.
Look out for ‘DEFRA approved for smokeless zones’ stickers on stoves and appliances to find out whether the models you’re looking at are DEFRA stoves. Most of the UK’s cities and large towns are also UK Smoke Control Areas – parts in which DEFRA stoves are the only option for wood burners or multi fuel stoves in the home.
By minimising smoke and excessive emissions, DEFRA stoves ensure consumers can enjoy the use of their heaters without causing a negative impact on the environment. In areas where pollution is already an issue – due to traffic, energy production and general consumption by businesses and homes – the government sees it as important to minimise homes’ other outputs.
Multi fuel DEFRA stoves must also be used with approved smokeless fuels. Our range at Calcaria Stoves features a number of these, giving you the opportunity to have a great source of carbon-neutral heat in the home.
