What with Lockdown and everything, Hi-Flame's outstanding new R-Series collection managed to hit The Stove Yard's two stores just as we were locking up for Lockdown. However, once they're on your radar, we're confident that one of these wonderful wood burning stoves could be just perfect for you and your home.

We've had nothing but excellent feedback from customers who've already installed an R-Series stove – like the new owner of the one in the photographs installed by Glass Beach, as part of their complete refurbishment and extension to a stone built cottage near the world-famous Eden Project in Cornwall. Over the years the cottage owner has been the proud possessor of a number of stoves but according to him this latest, one, the Hi-flame R5 with store stand, is by far the best. He's been telling us that it's so much more efficient and controllable than any of the others he's ever owned.

Each R-Series Ecodesign stove makes a quantum leap in reducing emissions from wood burning while maximising the efficiency of fuel to keep your running costs low. The collection consists of three models – the R4 Compact (3.7kW), the R5 Superior (5.0kW) and the R6 Widescreen (5.8kW) with the R5 and R6 giving you the option an integrated store stand version and later this year the R4 will also have a store stand version. All three models are 2022 Ecodesign compliant and also officially listed as Defra Approved for burning wood in Smoke Control Areas. In addition each one has in-built direct external air supply (DEAS) capability for installations in low energy homes or where mechanical ventilation is present.

If you're looking for a high performing contemporary styled stove that also offers you great value for money then any one of the R-Series models is certainly worthy of a place at the top of your shopping list.

The Northern Ireland Assembly's Climate Bill
and the stove industry's response

In February 2020 the Northern Ireland Assembly declared a climate emergency. The Climate Bill aims to ensure that Northern Ireland meets legally binding net-zero carbon emissions targets by 2045. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK without such targets. In March of this year the Republic of Ireland approved a similar bill with a net-zero target by 2050. All of this is to limit the consequences of climate change.

I'll admit it, when I was young and daft there was a time when I would have happily burned driftwood, not only on the beach watching the sun go down, but in my open fire at home as well. Free fuel, what could be better? Well, just about anything else actually. It might look great with its smooth sun-bleached and apparently bone dry, bark-free surfaces but I'm pleased to tell you that I know much better now. I'm definitely done with it, so let me explain why you should avoid it if you haven't already.

Whether you like it or not heat pumps are coming. The government has big plans to make them play a major role in the UK's domestic heating mix. Carbon-loaded coal fired electricity generation is now virtually a thing of the past and next on the Governments hit list is doing away with fossil fuels, such as oil and gas. Since domestic heating is one of the biggest users of these fuels, then removing them from our homes has to be a priority. The Government is planning for some 600,000 heat pump installations per year until 2028. But what are they like to live with...
