With energy prices increasing sharply over the last few months, and with the quintessential British weather constantly keeping us on our toes, you might be on the lookout for some heating alternatives. A wood stove not only acts as a charming centrepiece in any home, but also offers a great deal of comfort and warmth in an economical way. An eco stove from Carron takes each of these elements to the next level through thoughtful and innovative design, which is reflected in our latest accreditation.
HETAS Cleaner Choice Scheme
We’re thrilled to announce that the Carron eco stove - the new Carron ECO 5kW 2022 model - is officially approved by the HETAS ‘Cleaner Choice’ scheme! The scheme has been developed ‘in support of reducing the impacts of particulate emissions on the UK’s overall air quality targets’ and, as a ‘Cleaner Choice’ appliance, our eco stove has been verified as exceeding the current requirements for particulate matter for UK smoke control areas.
If you check out the Carron listing on the HETAS website here, you’ll notice that the current Ecodesign Compliant Appliance Limit is 12.44. We’re proud to say that our rating is a very low 2.7, which is also 0.7 below the HETAS Cleaner Choice Limit. That’s an impressive 60% improvement on the Clean Air Act Particulate Limit (Full Load) and an even greater 67% improvement on the Clean Air Act Particulate Limit (Part-Load).
The Carron Eco Stove
Your Carron eco stove is suitable for wood burning alone, or you’ve got the multi-fuel option that allows for the burning of smokeless mineral fuels. We’ve incorporated a removable ash pan for convenience and a raised grate to allow combusted air to flow underneath the fuel for effective burning. Our new, modern design also features an innovative side handle and cleanburn technology that allows preheated air to be reintroduced to help prevent the glass becoming dirty and blackened.
A wood stove is guaranteed to breathe life and character into any space, especially with the option of our range of unique enamel colour finishes. Choose from cream, ash grey, antique, sage green, red, black and matt black to truly personalise your eco stove to suit your style, with optional matching flue pipes available too!
When it comes to installation, we advise consulting with the experts at HETAS directly as they will ensure your appliance is safely installed and works effectively. Find your HETAS registered installer here, and find out more about the Carron eco stove here.
