Fires and Stoves for Smoke Contol Areas 

Stoves in Smoke Control Areas

Q: Can I install a stove or fire in a Smoke Control Area?

A: If you live in a town or city, the chances are that you live in a Smoke Control Area.

To meet the smoke emission standards for these areas, you will need to burn smokeless fuels only on a multi fuel stove or fire, or you can burn logs on a wood burning or multi fuel stove or fire that has been approved by DEFRA as sufficiently cleanburning to be exempt from the regulations.

Numerous models in the Stovax range are approved to burn logs in Smoke Control Areas and these are detailed on the product pages of this website. To check whether you live in a Smoke Control Area visit
