Radiant woodfires release heat into the room by “radiating” a black infrared heat directly from the outer surfaces of the appliance, onto any object in close proximity resulting in more heat being retained lower in the room. Ideal for homes with high ceilings or poor insulation, or for applications when direct radiant heat is preferred, ie people suffering from arthritic or circulatory problems.
Convection woodfires “convect” hot air vertically from the top of the appliance resulting in the home being heated from the ceiling down. Generally better suited for insulated homes with standard height ceilings, convection woodfires heat more evenly throughout the home by eliminating the localised intensity of a radiant woodfire, and operate with cooler cabinet surfaces.
All convection Wood Fires emit radiant heat through the door glass, enabling you to warm yourself quickly when returning home on a cold winter’s evening.
A Metro fire will do more than simply heat your home. It can also heat water, save on power bills, provide security against electricity restrictions or outages, and can also be used to cook on and boil water for drinking.
Whatever your heating requirement there’s a range of models and options to choose from.
