To ensure satisfactory performance of domestic solid fuel and wood-burning appliances, it is important to use fuels that are of a suitable type and size. Good quality fuels are essential for safe and efficient combustion as poor quality fuels waste energy and ultimately cost more for the consumer. All HETAS accredited fuels have undergone certification in accordance with the relevant standard, providing consumer confidence that the fuels being burnt are both safe and efficient for the type of appliance they have.
Consumers purchasing an approved fuel have;
- confidence that they can choose a supplier that will deliver the right fuel for their installation, home and needs.
- confidence that a product label is present and this defines the essential features of the fuel in a consistent manner.
- the ability to make an informed choice between products from different suppliers.
