What are the Best Stoves for 202415th January 2024



There is nothing quite as nice as getting home on a chilly winter’s day and basking in the warmth created by a cosy log burner. The rise of energy bills and the ongoing cost of living crisis have seen many homeowners turning to wood burning stoves as a cost-effective alternative to heating their homes. If you are looking for a new stove but are unsure where to start, let’s explore some of the most sought-after stoves on the market for the year ahead.


What are Eco Design Stoves?

You may have heard of ‘eco design ready’ stoves. The term is a result of legislation changes. Manufacturers are now required to improve the overall performance and efficiency of their stoves. Each one must undergo rigorous testing and verification to ensure they meet the latest eco design standards, set out by DEFRA, (Department of the Environment, Fisheries and Rural Affairs) in their latest Clean Air Strategy. As of January 2022, the sale of any stove that does not adhere to these standards is banned from being sold to the public.


Eco design stoves incorporate cutting-edge combustion technology, including secondary air supply and catalytic converters, to ensure a cleaner burn, and a substantial reduction in harmful emissions. These emissions include those for Particulate Matter (PM), Organic Gaseous Compounds (OGC), Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx). When compared to a 10-year-old wood burning stove, an eco-design stove produces an astonishing 80% fewer emissions and a whopping 90% fewer emissions than an open fire. What’s more, their enhanced efficiency results in less fuel consumption, costing you less to operate in the long run.


To help get you started, here are some of our favourite eco stoves that are also suitable for use in smoke control areas:
