Since the 1980’s we have always imported woodburning stoves for other manufacturers and enjoyed doing so for a very long time. However, we could see that the future lay in being masters of our own destiny so we took the big step into designing and manufacturing our own stoves back in 2009. Since then we have created a beautiful range of over 45 woodburning, multifuel, electric and gas stoves and inserts which are covered by our extensive warranties.
We like to think that we have something for everyone within our range and are delighted that nearly 100,000 ACR stoves have been installed into UK homes and around the world already. We have the approach of continuously improving our products with small, ongoing changes which make for an even better stove ownership experience. Our diverse business background enables us to think from the commercial, the installation, the operation and the development side of our business and we are still a family business so we care about how best to serve our customers and retailer partners,
Modern woodburning stoves can help solve the problem rather than being part of the problem. Wood is a renewable energy source – it’s a sustainable heat source. Solar power from the sun, wind power and wood energy are all renewable energy sources, meaning that they can be used forever without depleting the earth.
Our climate is warming up and it is everyone's responsibility to do their bit.
Using renewable energy is like living off the interest earned by the earth’s assets and never touching it’s savings. With one of the largest range of EcoDesign Ready stoves, we are doing our part to make sure you are purchasing the cleanest woodburning stoves ever produced.
It is estimated that for every 1kg of firewood burned in a modern stove it reduces emissions of between 0.5 and 1kg of CO2 when compared to electric or oil fired heating. This estimation means that for every modern, EcoDesign woodstove in operation gives an approximate reduction of 3 tons of CO2 every year.
In contrast, fossil fuels such as oil, coal and gas are not renewable and their consumption is the leading cause of global warming. Burning fossil fuels sends carbon monoxide, the main greenhouse gas, on a one way trip. It pumps million-year old carbon from inside the earth into the atmosphere where the concentration of carbon dioxide is increasing. Burning oil, coal and gas is like spending the earth’s savings and scientists say that this is changing the global climate.
Wood fuel is different. As trees grow, they absorb carbon dioxide from the air in a process powered by the sun. Indeed, about half the weight of dry wood is this absorbed carbon. Wood is a sustainable fuel. When trees are used for energy, a part of the forest’s annual growth is diverted from the natural decay cycle into our homes to heat them. Natural firewood is an energy product from the forest.
Stoves are up to 90% more efficient
Some may view a woodstove as old fashioned but that image is now out of date. Things have changed a lot in recent years and innovative research has transformed the trusty old woodburner from a clunky black box into a marvel of modern heating technology without losing the charm of a real fire. SIA EcoDesign approved stoves are up to 90% more efficient than an open fire.
If people swapped from using their open fires to installing an EcoDesign Ready stove, the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere from woodburning alone would dramatically diminish meaning that the air we breathe is far cleaner.
