Ecodesign stoves are now everywhere you look – even though they’re not really a legal requirement until January 1, 2022.

It’s Official SIA Ecodesign Stoves ReduceEmissions.The publication of the Defra Clean Air Strategy confirms that Ecodesign stoves will play a central role in the government’s plan to reduce emissions from domestic combustionand commends the SIA for releasing the stoves ahead of the 2022 target date.
Stoves with direct/external air connections do not necessarily have to be expensive. The popular Hi-Flame Alpha 1 and Graphite 5 stoves are both available with a direct air box, they are also Defra approved and SIA Ecodesign ready.
