HETAS are the official body recognised by Government to approve biomass and solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels and services including the registration of competent installers and servicing businesses.

Although HETAS have a comprehensive website, we have listed below some of the areas that thatched property owners are most likely to be interested in. You can either click to navigate to specific areas of the HETAS website or you can go straight to the main HETAS website.

Find Installer

The HETAS ‘Find Installer’ search makes it easy to find your nearest registered HETAS installer of solid fuel, wood and biomass appliances. Solid fuel and biomass appliances are becoming even more popular with the growing demand for renewable energy solutions. To make sure appliances work safely and efficiently, it’s important that installation and servicing are carried out by a professional. Find an installer.

Find Chimney Sweep

The HETAS ‘Find Chimney Sweep’ search makes it easy to find your nearest HETAS-approved chimney sweep. A good chimney is essential to the continuing efficient and safe operation of all solid fuel-burning heating and cooking appliances.

HETAS recommends that chimney sweeping is best carried out by a HETAS-approved chimney sweep at least once a year. All HETAS-approved sweeps are registered members of one of three chimney sweep trade associations and have attended a HETAS training course. Find a chimney sweep.

Find Fuels

To ensure the effective 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. Poor quality fuels waste energy and 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. Find fuels.

Find Retailer

HETAS-Approved Retailers give consumer confidence in getting a suitable, efficient and safe heating appliance for their home. All approved retailers contain at least one HETAS-trained showroom staff member, meaning quality advice can be given to the end user that meets a good standard of service. Find a retailer.
