The Top 5 DEFRA Approved Stoves of 2018
If you’re taking the plunge and investing in a wood burning stove or multi-fuel stove, it is important to check prior to purchase if you live in a smoke-exempt town or city.
Living in one of these areas means that you are unable to burn solid fuels unless you have a stove that has been approved by DEFRA as a smoke-free appliance. Anyone who is found to be disobeying this law can be hit with a hefty fine, so it is important to do your research prior to purchasing.
To make things easier for you, we have pulled together some of the top DEFRA approved wood burning and multi-fuel stoves that we have in stock here at Stove Supermarket to make your buying process that whole lot easier.
