Q & A

Is my stove legal?

With the new emissions regulations coming on, how do I know if the stove on my narrowboat will be legal or not?

WW says:

It's is likely that existing stoves will not be bound by direct emission limits. However the types of fuels that can be burnt are already controlled in smokeless zones- just rarely enforced- and so are likely to become more stringent. One issue is that stoves that pass increased emissions texts may not in practice donso when installed on boats- where we tend to have much shorter flues than they were designed for. Some places, like London, could impose total restrictions on any solid fuel burning stove use within designated areas.
