Freestanding wood heaters in Australia

Why wood heating is good heating

You may already have a preferred way to heat your house. Maybe you use gas heating and perhaps you’re looking for a more sustainable heating solution? If that’s the case, a wood fireplace could be a great addition to your home in 2023.

According to Matt Kean – environmental minister of New South Wales (NSW), the state has the best air quality regulatory frameworks in the world and won’t seek to ban wood stoves or heaters. This is simply because these apparatuses use sustainable/renewable energy, which is greenhouse-friendly.

Why wood heating?

It’s no secret that wood has always been one of the most widely used fuels for heating. For ages, it has been a heart-warming natural energy source unlike any other. This makes slow-combustion wood heaters a popular heating choice amongst many Australian households. Let’s break down the top reasons why it’s a great idea to add a wood heater to your home this season.

  • Environmentally friendly

With more and more of us becoming aware of our eco-footprint, we are exploring sustainable heating options that will be friendlier to the environment. If you feel the same and want to reduce fossil fuels when heating your home, wood heating is the best heating. This is because wood burning is considered virtually “carbon-neutral” and a renewable energy source.

  • Economical heating

Wood is, by far, a cheaper heating alternative than gas, oil, electricity or any other fuel. It provides exceptional heating at a fraction of the cost. In fact, many of our European fireplaces operate using radiant heat, which means the heat from the system radiates from all sides of the unit, sending warmth in all directions with no fan required.

  • Cooking convenience

Nothing beats the feeling of sitting in front of a wood fireplace, but what if you can use it for cooking, too? Often overlooked, a wood heater can also be used as a stovetop or a model with a featured oven. You can use it for cooking an endless variety of meals. Although it will require a bit of patience at first, cooking with wood heaters will allow you the convenience of heating your home and cooking for the family at the same time.

  • Aesthetically appealing

Finally, you want a wood fireplace that will look fabulous no matter where it is installed in your home. Whether you choose to install it indoors or outdoors, your wood fireplace will act as a focal point that will surely elevate any space. With styles varying from classic to contemporary, in-built to freestanding wood heaters, there are plenty of options to choose from.
