Wood burning fires remain a popular source of home heating, combining unbeatable warmth and ambience with a carbon neutral, renewable fuel source. More stringent national environmental standards for emissions and efficiency levels, combined with technological innovation by wood fire manufacturers, has seen wood burners evolve into more energy-efficient, clean-burning sources of heat. In some areas of NZ, there are local regulations that are even stricter, giving rise to the introduction of ultra low emission burners that meet these standards. For those on 2 hectares or more, ‘rural’ wood fire model alternatives are available for installation. Always find out about the requirements for wood burners in your home’s location.
