Can I install a wood burning appliance in a Smoke Control Area?

If you live in a town or city, the chances are that you live in a Smoke Control Area. To meet the smoke emission standards for these areas, you will need to burn authorised smokeless fuels only on a multi-fuel appliance. A list of authorised smokeless fuels can be found by visiting the DEFRA website. If you wish to burn wood, your appliance must be suitable for use in Smoke Control Areas.

Stovax has a wide range of wood burning and multi-fuel stoves that are available for use in Smoke Control Areas. Once you have selected your preferred stove, the features section within the relevant product page should feature a Smoke Control Exempt logo and this means that the product you have selected is suitable for use in Smoke Control Areas.

Please visit our dedicated Smoke Control Areas page for more information.
