Wood heaters are available in several styles from ambient open fires like the Heatmaster series to more efficient sealed slow combustion wood fires that can burn for much longer periods and produce more heat with less fuel. The open wood fireplaces rely on a convective box to heat up an passively convect the hot air into the room but at the same time radiant heat is produced from the flames. The slow combustion wood heaters can be radiant or convective or a mix of both as in the case of some Lopi wood heaters and the Eureka Nugget. Generally if you want a heater for an open area especially if you have high ceilings, and you can place the heater in a central position, then a radiant wood heater sized for the area will do the job well. If on the other hand you have a standard house with living areas at one end with a hallway and bedrooms branching off the hallway then a convective wood heater will move the warm air more efficiently through the house. All wood heaters are available as freestanding or inbuilt and come in many styles from the more traditional to a sleek modern look. If you have any questions on how to choose the right heater for your home, call or email us we'll be more than happy to talk you through the options.

Gas fireplaces are available in two styles, the open gas convection boxes or the glass fronted sealed units. Some are available with pebbles, logs or coals and generally the sealed gas fires are the more efficient.
Gas fireplaces are all different in their installation and flueing requirements but all these specifications are listed on the heater pages. If you're not sure, contact us .
The gas fireplaces listed on these pages are all tested and approved for the Australian market and all are flued so you won't have any problems with emissions or unburned gas fumes escaping into your living space.
Some of these gas flame fires are extremely efficient and some not so. You will notice that some companies call their fireplaces 'decorative' or 'ambient'. This means that not a great deal of heat is produced but they are intended more as a visual fireplace and there are some great looking styles available. Check on the relevant gas heater pages as the output or heating capacity will be listed. Most gas fires are available as zero clearance for flexibility of installation.
We know that most of you will want great looks and plenty of heat so there is a good selection here that will meet both criteria and most importantly, they are available at the right price.

Zero clearance wood fires are simply insulated fireboxes that are designed to be 'boxed' into a timber or metal framed surround and triple flued to create the inbuilt fireplace look. Some like the Heatmaster A series insulated fireboxes can also be freestanding.
