DEFRA Stoves

DEFRA stoves are approved by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs so you can burn wood in smoke controlled areas. If you live in such an area but still want the warmth and comfort of an open flame, you need a DEFRA-approved stove.

DEFRA stoves are the only stove you can use in Smoke Control Areas (SCA). If your council has designated your street as an SCA, you can still enjoy a real fire as long as you use a DEFRA stove. You could face a £1,000 if your log burner isn’t approved!

Sussex Eco Solutions stocks a wide selection of DEFRA-approved stoves from leading manufacturer Charnwood. Each offers the high level of efficiency and reliability you’re looking for along with full compliance with SCA regulations.

Models cover the traditional to the modern and are ideal for all kinds of interior designs.

All DEFRA-approved stoves are available for fitting by our expert team of HETAS-approved installers and all parts and labour are fully guaranteed.

    Sussex Eco Solutions were fantastic in helping us get our first ever log burner. The staff team were very professional and helped us make an informed decision on the purchase. The installation service was great too. We have also enjoyed a fantastic post sale customer service. Would highly recommend these guys.

    A pleasure from start to finish, great initial meeting in the showroom with Mike who was well prepared and showed what might be available and was generally just helpful giving sound advice, this was so welcome having been to several other fire suppliers who didn't have a clue. The survey was the same with the same attitude to get the best solution for me followed by a great price from Becky. The two installers were respectful , knowledgeable and completed the work without any fuss, followed with a call from Becky at the end to ensure all was fine, before the final invoice . Finally, a sound bit of advice from Mike on a minor query I had on controlling the heat. I can't recommend Sussex Eco Solutions more highly, great team effort, thanks guys.

    Excellent, professional company. They fitted a stove I’d already bought and have been great from the initial survey to finishing. The glass on the ‘ex demo’ stove I’d bought from another company had been replaced incorrectly, the installer - Conan, fixed this issue for me when he didn’t have to. Absolutely love the end product and really appreciate the work the guys have done. They really go above and beyond. The only slight negative comment I have would be there was quite a bit of a cleanup after. However, I understand the nature of the work and some old birds nests in the chimney proved difficult and messy, so I wouldn’t mark this against them. Fully recommend this company and their great employees!

    I can't thank and recommend the staff at Sussex Eco Solutions highly enough. From the very first day, to actually having the gas fire installed, the care, assistance, patience and professionalism of the staff has been excellent. Even after having the fire installed there was absolutely no problem at all the fitter revisiting in order to make minor adjustments with respect to the placements of one or two logs in order to further enhance the realistic flame effect from the gas fire.
    We will certainly have no hesitation in using Sussex Eco Solutions again in the future.

    Absolutely fantastic! From start to finish Nick and his team have been amazing. Nothing is too much trouble and aftercare with any questions has continued with the same top quality service. This is a company that truly cares about its customers and makes the whole experience enjoyable. Thank you

    If you want a wood burning stove this is the place to go. A very customer & ethically focused local firm who invest time explaining all of their products and even where to buy the best quality sustainable wood/fuel. Also, environmentally-conscious and their team of fitters were courteous, clean, efficient and knowledgeable, explaining how everything worked. Would recommend.
