a wood burning stove is the perfect answer to achieving the emissions savings needed for the SAP calculation
Document L of the building regulations and the SAP calculation means that every newbuild must have a form of secondary heating specified. If no form of secondary heating is specified then it defaults to electrical heating, which has by far the worst implications for your SAP calculation. However, a wood burning stove is the perfect answer to achieving the emissions savings needed for the SAP calculation. Specify a wood burning stove as secondary heating, and you will get a positive benefit: up to 9.8% emissions savings - that's nearly half the savings needed.
