Buying a new stove on or after 1st January 2020

All new appliances installed on or after 1st January 2022 will need to be EcoDesign Ready to comply with the new regulations. Whilst we recommend that you look out for the SIA ecodesign ready label you can as it currently stands can install a stove that doesnt have the SIA label but claims to be Ecodesign ready.

You should take care if choosing a stove that is not SIA approved. If a stove is not SIA approved but is claiming to be ecodesign ready it is self certifying that it has passed the new rules. You will have no real proof that it is up to the new standard and its merely a claim of readiness. Buying an SIA approved stove will be tested in the official backed test centres and the results verified by HETAS (Governing body for Solid Fuel appliances).
