Competent Persons Explained

We are not just a stove shop. As a company who have been installing heating systems for over 3o years we have seen a lot of changes.

We have always had a philosophy that doing a good job and getting recommended for it has underpinned the business, but today this has to be backed up with qualifications which are regularly updated and verified.

As a customer you need to know that your stove installation has been installed properly by a competent person and you need reassurance that this is the case.
For more information about ‘competent persons’ read the leaflet below-


At Ashburn we are registered by OFTEC, an established organisation which has supported safety withing the heating industry since 1991. Read more from OFTEC by clicking on the Logo.

To meet insurance and planning standards any stove installed must meet current standards and be fitted by someone qualifying as a  ‘Competent Person’

Log Stoves and the Clean Air Strategy

(From the BBC news) The Governments ‘Clean Air Strategy’ includes measures to deal with domestic burning; the government will ban the sale of the most polluting fuels and ensure that only the cleanest stoves are available for sale by 2022.

They are also consulting on phasing out the sale of traditional house coal and on limiting the sale of wet wood, the type found on garage forecourts. The government’s plan for these fuels is expected within months.

All stoves sold by Ashburn Stoves & Heating meet or exceed the Governments requirements, they are modern, efficient and well engineered. Ashburn also continue to recommend that all Logs used in wood burning stoves are fully dried and from reputable sources


Here is some useful information about Governments Clean Air Strategy we published some months ago

Ban on wood stoves? The truth of it all

No doubt you will have all seen some misleading headlines in recent months about a possible ban on wood stoves. Here, we identify the truth behind the headlines and what you can tell customers who might have seen the headlines.

On the 22nd May the Environment Secretary Michael Gove published a Clean Air Strategy which aims to cut air pollution and save lives, backed up through new primary legislation. What does the strategy say and how will it impact you and your customers?

The new strategy, which is out for consultation until the 14th August, is a key part of Defra’s 25 Year Plan to leave our environment in a better state than we found it. HETAS, Woodsure and The Stove Industry Alliance have all been consulting with Defra for some time now and once again Defra has clarified they are not looking to implement a ban on wood stoves.

No ban on wood stoves | The key points

The strategy summarises actions to reduce emissions from domestic burning, clearly identifying there is no intention to ban wood burning stoves. Here are the key points:

  1. Legislate to prohibit sale of the most polluting fuels.
  2. Ensure that only the cleanest stoves are available for sale by 2022.
  3. Give new powers to local authorities to take action in areas of high pollution, bringing legislation into the 21st century with more flexible, proportionate enforcement powers.
  4. Work with industry to identify an appropriate test standard for new solid fuels entering the market.
  5. Ensure that consumers understand what they can do to reduce their impact from burning.

The strategy also suggests Defra will give local authorities powers to go further in areas of high pollution, for example exploring what further steps government can take to enable local authorities to encourage ‘no burn days’ during high-pollution episodes.

Initiatives

The strategy identifies a number of voluntary initiatives that industry has undertaken to address concerns over air pollution from wood burning. These include Woodsure’s Ready to Burn, The SIA Ecodesign Ready scheme (administered by HETAS) and the Burnright campaign.

HETAS will continue to work with Defra and industry to drive forward policy and reduce air pollution from wood burning stoves. Defra would like your views on the actions being proposed to reduce air pollution and its effects, and to hear whether you have any further suggestions.
