Ecodesign is EU legislation aimed at lowering emissions and improving air quality and is due to come into force for wood burning stoves in the UK in 2022. Manufacturers in the Stove Industry alliance (SIA) have recently been developing stoves that will meet the strict emission limits five years ahead of schedule and these will be branded with the SIA Ecodesign Ready label. Speaking at Tuesday's launch, Simon Hoare, MP, said ‘the Ecodesign Ready brand will help the consumer easily choose those appliances that meet the most important emissions standards required by the Directive. The Ecodesign Ready brand is a great example of industry taking the lead to promote the benefits of more efficient and cleaner technologies and bringing them to the market. Ecodesign Ready stoves will help to cut air pollution, therefore Defra and the Minister welcome this proactive approach.’

The Sun shines a positive light on stoves and their running costs

After all the scaremongering and misinformation about stoves a national daily paper finally sets the record straight with a factual article on exactly what it costs to run a wood burner compared to electricity and gas. The Sun article makes welcome news to stove lovers everywhere who probably knew all of this anyway.
