In terms of providing warmth, wood heaters are difficult to beat. They radiate heat well, keeping your family warm all throughout winter. Wood heaters also give off that unmistakable campfire scent, which can evoke strong and pleasant memories for many people.
When it comes to style, wood heaters are simply classic. When you build a fire, you’ll instantly feel the familiar comfort that comes along with the burning timber in front of you. If you’re looking to use your heater as a natural gathering place in your home, then a wood heater is your best bet. Your family can get together and watch the flames dance over the logs as you create long-lasting memories together.
What type of wood is best for wood fireplaces?
The best type of wood varies from state to state, so it depends on what is available. River Red Gum is popular in NSW. Ultimately, hardwoods provide more heat because they burn for longer, while softwoods burn faster with hotter flames.
The main thing to consider is that wood should always be cut and stored in a dry, well-ventilated place. It takes time for the wood to dry out once cut, so it’s best to let it dry for 6-12 months before use.
Are wood fireplaces worth the money?
When deciding on installing a wood fireplace, the type of heat it provides and the general ambience it offers to your home are general considerations. The cost difference between using electricity or gas compared to purchasing wood is minimal, however, you do have the advantage of staying warm even if you suffer a power outage.
