12 Best Ecodesign Multifuel Stoves UK for 2022

best ecodesign multifuel stoves

From 2022, all multifuel and wood burning stoves are going to be much better for the environment.

This is all thanks to the new Ecodesign regulations, which you’ve probably heard about if you’ve been on the look out for a new stove.

It will be a legal requirement that all new stoves sold from 2022 are Ecodesign compliant. The new regulations form part of the UK government’s Clean Air Strategy 2019, which has come off the back of an EU Directive on air pollution.

It means multifuel stoves are going to be cleaner, more efficient and heat your space more effectively. It’s a win-win for everyone, including the environment.

Recap on Ecodesign ready regulations

There’s a big change coming into the stove world in 2022. From the 1st January 2022 all multifuel (and wood) burning stoves sold in the UK and EU will have to be Ecodesign ready.

In short, the new Ecodesign regulations are coming in to lessen the impact of stoves on the environment. Specifically, Ecodesign relates to particulate emissions and the air pollution this causes. Less smoke particles emitted, less air pollution.

Ecodesign ready stoves emit significantly less emissions, even when compared to the previous best DEFRA-approved category. All Ecodesign stoves have to reduce particulate emissions by 55% and carbon monoxide levels by 88% compared to Defra-approved stoves.

What can you burn on a multifuel stove?

When it comes to buying a stove, you have two choices: a purely wood burning or a multi fuel burning stove.

According to Which? magazine, of those who own a stove in the UK, 46% are wood burners and 54% are multifuel burners.

The clue is in the name – a multifuel stove can burn a variety of fuel sources, including wood and traditional logs, as well as other smokeless materials. They can do this thanks to a moveable grate at the bottom, so the stove can be de-ashed to maintain burn effectiveness.

With a multifuel stove you have a greater choice of what you use to produce heat. A multifuel stove can burn:

  • Wood – logs, pellets, firewood, kindling
  • Sawdust briquettes
  • Turf briquettes
  • Coffee logs
  • Smokeless fuel, including smokeless coal – although not recommended from an environmental perspective
  • Peat briquettes – again not very environmentally friendly as peat needs to be kept in the ground

If you want to look solely at wood burners, have a read on the 10 best Ecodesign woodburning stoves here.
