DEFRA Stoves

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.

Calcaria Stoves are a leading supplier of secondary heating appliances – including DEFRA stoves, wood burners, and multi fuel stoves. We’ve supplied residential clients across Yorkshire with high-efficiency and approved models that look wonderful and provide a new source of eco-friendly heat.

Do you install wood burning & multifuel stoves?
Any installation of a solid fuel appliance and/or flue system must be fitted by a HETAS-registered installer. We employ our own HETAS-registered fitters, which exempts the homeowner from having to notify Building Control of the installation.

What is the difference between a wood burning and a multi-fuel appliance?
Wood burning appliances usually have a flat bed on which to build the fire. This is because wood burns best on a bed of its own ash, with air for combustion coming from above. A multifuel model gives you the option of burning smokeless coals too. They have a raised grate, as smokeless coal requires combustion air from underneath the fire, and an ashpan to collect the cinders.

How efficient are stoves?
Modern wood burning or multi-fuel stoves are up to 89% efficient. This is because the combustion takes place in a sealed chamber behind glass, with the air feeding the fire easily controllable through inlets in the door of the stove. In contrast, traditional open fires are only around 27% efficient at best – meaning the vast majority of heat generated disappears up the chimney!

Why should I consider having a stove?
Stoves are becoming increasingly popular in the UK. They offer a highly efficient form of secondary heating, completely independent of gas or electricity supplies. This is particularly attractive to many homeowners in times of fluctuating energy prices. Additionally, a real fire offers a genuine aesthetic appeal and ambience, and can add value onto a property.
Burning wood is a carbon-neutral activity. In addition, multi-fuel appliances, burning a mixture of wood and smokeless coals, produce less carbon dioxide emissions than electric or gas appliances.

Can I burn wood in a multi-fuel stove?
Yes, it is fine to also burn logs in a multi-fuel appliance, but be aware that the presence of a grate and ashpan often reduces the firebox area, meaning less room for your logs. If you are sure that you will only ever burn logs, it is best to go for a dedicated wood burning appliance. Some appliances can be converted to multi-fuel in the future should your circumstances change.
