The SIA (Stove Industry Alliance) has recently used the services of a research company, which indicates that modern clean burning stoves, including those in the Charlton & Jenrick range, designed to meet the new Ecodesign requirements, will reduce particulate emissions by 90% compared to an open fire, and 80-84% compared to an old stove.
This is a significant milestone for the stove industry and for the environment. We have spoken at length in past articles about the constant strive towards cleaner, more environmentally ways to heat homes. The fact is old stoves and open fires are not efficient, not by a long way, and are not as anywhere near as good for the environment as high efficiency stoves.
From this spring, the industry’s main manufacturers, including Charlton & Jenrick will ensure that all newly-designed wood burning stove models will meet European environmental standards for particulate emissions, which are not due to be enforced until 2022.
There are significant benefits to using a highly efficient stove, which include:
* You only pay for the wood you burn – no gas bills to worry about
* Burning wood in a highly efficient stove is virtually carbon neutral
* It’s a renewable energy source
* They produce a wonderful flame
* They make a wonderful, welcoming feature in a home
To help communicate the value of buying a high efficiency stove the SIA (Stove Industry Alliance) is introducing an education program explaining the benefits of Ecodesign stove. There will also be an SIA Ecodesign-ready stamp, which will be placed on stoves to help make customers aware that their stove complies with Ecodesign standards.
