Higher VAT for renewables proposed

HMRC is proposing an increased VAT rate for ‘energy saving materials’. It follows a European Court ruling which said that the UK’s use of a reduced VAT rate of 5% for these materials was not consistent with EU law. The Court argued that the UK was applying the reduced VAT rate to too wide a proportion of the population and to some energy saving materials that were not strictly eligible.

To comply with this ruling HMRC is proposing that, in future, consumers would have to pay 20% VAT for ‘energy saving materials’ subject to a range of exemptions explained in more detail below. If agreed the change will come into force on 1 August 2016.

GREAT SERVICE Great choice of stoves, and excellent knowledge of products. We wanted a contemporary look so choose a Purevision PVR cylinder wood burner.

We will certainly be using Ludlow Stoves again to fit our next wood burner!

We strongly recommend Ludlow stoves for anything wood-stove related.

COULDN’T HAVE BEEN BETTER. They did a great job with very personable staff. Well done.

PROFESSIONAL AND PROACTIVE I recently used Ludlow Stoves for the supply and installation of a woodburner for a property refurbishment project. I was extremely impressed and happy with the level of service given. Theywere extremely helpful from the initial enquiry, assessment visit and subsequent installation. The team worked well, were very polite and helpful and when a particular issue was discovered came up with a brilliant solution. The finished job looks superb both inside and out. I would definitely recommend Ludlow Stoves to anyone considering an installation. Greg also visited after the job was completed to ensure everything was satisfactory. A full 5 stars for customer service, knowledge and technical ability.
GREAT SERVICE CAN’T RECOMMEND ENOUGH Our installation was far more difficult than expected but the guys from Ludlow stoves worked tirelessly. The whole process was great from start to finish, highly recommended.
 
STOVE INSTALLATION Fantastic service knowledge and a really helpful team that all know what they are doing, I really can not recommend them high enough as they exceeded every aspect of the installation from choosing the correct stove from their beautifully stocked showroom and sizing it for my needs through to making the least amount of disruption and creating a real showpiece that they were as happy with as I was. A real family business that can be trusted. 10 stars if it was possible!
 
BIOMASS INSTALLATION AND 2 X STOVES Very pleased with all of the help and advice received by their friendly staff at every point of the installation, from designing the complete heating system and how it all operates to how the biomass appliance worked and getting the most from it. They also paid as much attention to the standard stove installs. many thanks David.

I can highly recommend Gregg and his team on the professional service we received after purchasing our wood burner. From the visit to the showroom to the completion of the contract the whole team were totally professional both in their advise given and installation.

The room was left spotless after each day even though we weren’t using it at the time. As an ex Fire Officer I would recommend Ludlow Stoves as they work to the highest of standards and know their product inside out.

Following numerous thoughts on how we could improve the heating in our home, we were delighted to find Gregg and Corrabeth. Despite all our changes of mind and procrastinating they were always happy to help! We are delighted with our end choice of a Rosa XXL. Not only does it amply heat our new kitchen and adjoining rooms, it also gives us ‘free cooking’, by which I mean when we have it lit I do not need to worry about using our electric oven of hobs. I was not convinced that a woodburning cooker could have enough control to it to be able to cook a wide range of meals on it but it really hasn’t taken me long at all to find out the best way to use it. It remains a great talking point and focal point in our large kitchen. We also took their advice and purchased an eco fan-this has really helped circulate the warmth created by the stove out into our hallway and beyond. I thoroughly recommend Ludlow Stoves.

When our aged Rayburn sprung a leak in the middle of January we needed to get a replacement fast. Ludlow Stoves sorted us out with a superbly efficient and cost-effective Lincar Ilaria stove within days, and we have been supported before and after the sale with prompt and knowledgeable service. We are very happy with our Ilaria; we have never been so warm!

Broseley Survey reveals unusual fuels for stoves

Shredded tyres, soiled nappies, old wellies and even dead lambs are amongst some of the more unusual things that some owners of wood burning stoves have tried to use as fuel.

Our recent survey reveals that many people risk damaging their stove and reducing its efficiency by thinking anything which burns will make good fuel.

More alarmingly, some could be putting their lives at risk by not following the manufacturer’s instructions and even risk causing an explosion by using petrol or diesel to light their stove.

Furthermore, many others are burning plastics, household rubbish, wet logs or other unsuitable wood products that can cause chimney fires which can easily spread to the rest of the property.

The survey of around 1,000 distributors and installers of wood burning stoves and boilers found that nearly half (46.1%) of end users were either unsure or completely unaware of the correct wood to use as fuel.

Other key findings included:

  • 27.6% of respondents said their customers believe that all wood is the same, despite 88.2% of businesses surveyed saying they spend time talking to their customers about the best wood to use.
  • More than 70% said they frequently (39.5%) or very frequently (31.6%) met customers who believed they could install a wood burner themselves, or with the help of a friend.
  • When asked what the most common reason for customers buying a wood burning product, the overwhelming majority of respondents, 96.1%, said it was to save on fuel bills.

The list of things you said your customers had burnt in a stove was considerable; it seems that many still believe that anything which burns can be used as fuel. However Some of the more unusual items included:

  • Dead lambs
  • Chicken carcasses
  • Waste food
  • Briquettes made from copies of the Sunday Telegraph
  • Whiskey barrels
  • Wellies and boots
  • Japanese knotweed
  • Old teabags mixed with sawdust
  • Installation
