Free Standing Wood Heaters

Posted by Ruby Meers on

Most people enjoy the warmth and ambiance that wood fires provide. Unfortunately, not all homes have built-in fireplaces. Ultimate Wood Heaters has the ideal solution. You can enjoy a wood fire anywhere in your living space when you choose one of our free-standing wood heaters.

What Advantages Do Wood Fires Have?

Freestanding wood fireplaces are more than attractive interior design focal points. Installing and using a wood heater has many advantages:

  • Wood provides better, more efficient and cheaper heat than many other options.
  • Wood fires are environmentally friendly and can reduce the usage of fossil fuels.
  • You can use them for warmth and cooking during power outages.
  • The flames provide a cosy and romantic ambiance.

Different types of wood have various qualities that make them less or more suitable for heating. Generally speaking, seasoned, untreated dry hardwood burns best.

Where Can You Use a Freestanding Wood Fireplace?

Australia's winters are mild, with minimum temperatures in Melbourne averaging 6.5°. However, many homes are difficult to heat. Whether you want to keep a single room or your entire home warm, freestanding wood heaters are the perfect choice.

When choosing where to place your wood-burning heaters, you'll need to select spots with:

  • Sufficient clearance from walls
  • Access to a flue
  • A fire and heat-resistant platform

Ultimate Wood Heaters has multiple sizes of freestanding wood fireplaces to suit the heating requirements of smaller or larger spaces.
