Wood Heaters in Adelaide & South Australia

Wood heaters are available as built-in or freestanding units, in a wide range of styles to suit all decors. They can be fitted into an existing fireplace or we can supply dimensions for a mock fireplace to be built. Not just for heating, we offer a range of stunning wood heaters that can be used as indoor or outdoor ovens too.

Wood heaters are very energy efficient and can burn 24/7 using much less wood than an open fire. They release their heat through the combined processes of heat radiation, which heats objects, and convection which heats the air. Each model predominantly uses one process or the other, hence the choice of radiant or convection heaters.

Choosing the correct sized wood heater and how it will heat the space you are wanting to heat is very important. For example, a model that is too large for the space you are heating will have to be turned down. This reduces efficiency, creates more emissions and produces unburnt contaminants (from incomplete combustion) which, over time, can damage the firebox and flue system if left unchecked.

Step 1 – House Size
Consider your home’s size, age and the area you are wanting to heat. If you have a medium sized well-insulated home in a region that experiences a mild winter climate, then 10kW of heat should be adequate. If your home is large, poorly insulated and/or draughty, you will require more heat output.

Step 2 – Heating Area
Measure the area (m2) you wish to heat and compare it to the heating area specifications for each wood heater model you’re interested in. There are, of course, a few other factors to consider as well. So it’s always a good idea to consult a professional like Glow when considering the size of heater that will best suit your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the right design is the first factor to consider. Along with aesthetics, there is also the option of a freestanding or inbuilt heater. It’s important to identify the size, space and layout of your home and ensure you correctly measure the area of the rooms you want to heat.

The performance of your wood heating unit relies on how well your home is insulated. A well insulated home retains the heat, while poor insulation results in heat loss through the walls, ceilings and windows.

A radiant heater may be a more effective style of heating for homes with poor insulation (as less heat rises in these heaters) while a convection unit is best suited to homes with good insulation and standard ceiling heights.

Convection wood heaters draw in air from floor level, heats that air which then rises away from the fire into the room. This cyclic convection air current means that the hottest air in the room rises up to the ceiling while the warmer air remains in the lower part of your room. Convection fires are best suited for insulated homes with standard height ceilings.

Radiant wood fires release heat into the room by radiating an infrared heat directly from the outer surfaces of the appliance onto any object nearby. This results in more heat being retained lower in the room. Radiant fires are ideal for older, less insulated or draughty homes, as well as homes with high ceilings or large open plan areas. Some radiant models can also be used for cooking as well as heating.

When buying firewood, note that seasoned wood will have large cracks running across the grain which are formed when the wood is drying out. When you hit two pieces of dry wood together, there should be a loud hollow cracking sound. A dull, muffled thud indicates the wood is wet.

Store wood under cover in a dry ventilated area. Wood stored on pallets or in a crisscrossed fashion allows air to circulate freely.
