What fuels are allowed to be used in our Lundy stoves? The burning question

Recent laws and restrictions circling the environment have left many people feeling confused regarding their wood stoves and following the government’s latest Clean Air Strategy many may be left with a burning question in their minds; what fuel am I allowed to use in my stove?

That’s where we come in and help.

A fuel must be approved by DEFRA to be used, unless it is being burnt in an ‘exempt’ appliance, which means you can use whatever fuel(s) the appliance manufacturer has specified.

An appliance can gain an ‘exempt’ status if it undergoes emission testing using the fuel(s) specified by the appliance manufacturer and meets the DEFRA standard.

We are proud to say that our Lundy pellet stoves meet this criteria. Through the years, our Lundy Pellet Stoves have undergone heaps of testing and have passed and been declared exempt in the UK (including; England, Wales and Scotland). Click here to view the DEFRA website where our exempt status for England is listed.

As well as DEFRA approved, tested and passed our stoves are also CE marked, tested and approved to EN 14785:2006, meaning our stoves are available for use in smoke-controlled areas. 

With our Lundy stoves, you are able to use any 6mm diameter and around 20mm long EN-PLUS wood pellet fuel. Using this type of fuel provides far lower emissions and is therefore a more environmentally friendly and cleaner method of heating your home.
