In-Depth Guide #10 - Wood Heating Options in Australia
Warm up your home the old-school way with a rich, heart-warming wood heater. At GJ Bradding, we’re the specialists in wood heaters Geelong homeowners can rely on for expertise and tailored advice. Below, we offer an in-depth look at what to consider when getting a wood heater for your home.
Style and Appearance
You can choose from a variety of wood heater options to best suit the decor of your home. This includes functions, minimalist and modern looks or traditional style heaters that provide a rustic, old-world charm.
It’s important to identify the size, space and layout of your home when selecting the right wood heater to ensure suitable heat coverage. Other factors include assessing how well-insulated your home is and whether you’re using other types of heating appliances in addition to a wood heater.
Inbuilt or Freestanding Wood Heaters
Inbuilt wood heaters are a modern energy-efficient alternative to an open brick fireplace, helping to direct heat into the room instead of out a chimney. If you don’t have an existing brick fireplace, a zero-clearance heater box enables you to easily transform any blank wall with a minimal structural impact. Homeowners without a fireplace can help create a cosy focal point for living spaces with freestanding wood heaters in Geelong.
Convection wood heaters feature an air cavity between the firebox and the outer skin. This means the air in the cavity heats up, expands and rises. The outer casing on the heater then draws more air in from the bottom, forcing the warmed air out of the top of the heater, making it easier and faster to warm up a space.
Radiant wood heaters, on the other hand, have all sides of the firebox exposed. This allows the heater to radiate heat outwards at a stable rate. Radiant heaters are simple to install and are the best option for homes with high ceilings and large open-plan living areas.
