To ensure satisfactory performance of domestic solid fuel appliances it is important to use fuels that are of a suitable type and size. Solid mineral fuels approved by HETAS have been tested on behalf of the fuel producer. The testing and approval combined with a quality assurance scheme enables the fuel to carry the HETAS Approved Solid Fuel logo for which consumers should look.
It is essential that all appliances (boilers,cookers and roomheaters) are fired with fuel as specified by the manufacturer and if installed in a Smoke Control Area meeting the requirements of the Clean Air Act. For more information on the Clean Air Act and Smoke Control Areas visit the ‘Smoke Control Areas‘ page of the HETAS website.
