Choosing a fire - Where to start?

Three key factors to consider when choosing a wood fire are the installation options, correct model selection and achieving a safe, compliant installation.

The right size Metro fire for your home and heating requirements with correct operation and good dry fuel will provide many years of warmth and reliable heating. Your Metro retailer/local installer can provide assistance with choosing the best fire and flue system and the additional heating accessories you may need. Selecting the most suitable installation location for your new fire is also important to ensure specified clearances, floor protector requirements, flue installation and optimum heat distribution are achieved. Talk to your local Metro retailer about a new Metro fire today.

Installation options

Decide on the type of installation you need and confirm if your home is located within a clean air zone or specified airshed. This will determine the type of Metro model you can install. Your Metro retailer or local council can advise of any specific emission requirements for your area.

The benefits of using wood to heat your home

  • A wood fire is relatively cheap to run, even if you have to purchase firewood.
  • If you have access to free firewood, your running costs will be close to zero.
  • Burning wood from sustainable forests is carbon neutral. While trees are growing, they capture carbon dioxide from the air. This carbon dioxide is released either when the wood is burnt, or when the tree dies and rots. While some emissions are produced in the transporting and processing of the wood, this is only a very small amount per unit of heat produced.
  • Wood is renewable and sustainable. New Zealand has extensive areas of forestry. Generation after generation of trees can be successfully harvested to produce firewood.
  • Metro wood fires will work during power cuts and can provide heat, hot water and also cook food on.
  • Most Metro models can be equipped with a wetback to heat household hot water.
