Can We Have A Woodburning Stove?

Modern wood burning stoves can be installed in most UK homes. They come in a wide range of sizes and styles to suit every taste and property. At Gondwana Green Heat, we are passionate about stoves and sustainable heating and we will be happy to advise you on how to get a stove installed in your home or office, whatever the logistical difficulties.

Even if other sellers or installers have suggested it is not possible, it’s worth giving Gondwana a call. We are happy to carry out site visits and in our experience, where there’s a ill there’s usually a way. Some of the most beautiful and effective stove installations we have seen have been in the most unlikely places and properties!

Do I Need a Chimney

You certainly will need some form of chimney. But Gondwana Green Heat sells and designs a range of chimney products suitable for our wood-fuelled heating systems, and these can be installed at the same time as the stove. If you don’t already have a chimney, this is a good opportunity as you can place the stove wherever you want, whether for maximum effect, optimum heating, or just convenience.

Where Do I Get The Fuel?

Our stoves and heaters are primarily designed to run on wood and we believe this is a sustainable carbon neutral fuel which has a very strong role to play in providing Britain with a sustainable energy future. You can see more about the ecological benefits of wood, and it’s role in the household, on our page dedicated to the Woodbuning Home. It is also widely available throughout the UK, can usually be delivered to your door, and is a beautiful thing to have in your house or garden!

The Clean Air Act

In the UK, we rightly have laws aimed at preventing pollution, and in particular the Clean Air Acts have sought to prevent the terrifying smogs of the past by preventing urban pollution. 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. 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.

Some of the stoves supplied by Gondwana Green Heat are Defra approved and can be legally installed and used in UK smoke control areas.

Some of our wood-burning stoves are also rated for other solid fuels such as smokeless fuel and coal. Another product which can be very convenient is wood-based briquettes, which are 100% wood waste compressed into blocks. They give off great heat while being sustainable, and are suitable for most stoves.
