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.
