Stoves suitable for smoke control areas

If you live in a smoke control area and you wish to burn wood then, by law, you must only use a stove that has been approved by Defra (Department of Farming and Rural Affairs) for use in a smoke control area. Stove manufacturers often use the terms 'Defra Approved" or "Smoke Exempt" (also stated as "SE").

A huge advantage of many "Defra-approved stoves" is that one can, "if the stove has a 5" collar and the manufacturer does not state otherwise" fit a 5" chimney liner rather than the usual 6" liner. Five inch chimney liners are often far easier to install into a chimney than 6"ensuring that this is a choice favoured by self-installers and professional fitters alike.
