Shopping for a wood heater can be a bit overwhelming because the range is huge, and they come in all shapes, styles and for heating large and small places and even the ones in between. In this post, we will give you a few tips to make your life a bit easier when it comes to making the big decision.

When making the decision on which wood heater to by you must consider a few things that are going to influence your decision. Firstly, what you are looking for is something that is going to look great in your home while keeping your family toasty and warm all winter long, in the most efficient way possible.

The style choices are endless when it comes to choosing a heater for your home. From retro to traditional, to more modern styles, like those from the people at Lopi Fireplaces. If you’re after a more traditional affair go for the classic potbelly. These little fireplaces are iconic, taking their name from their appearance of a large man’s belly. They are cute and ideal for heating small to medium spaces.

If you after a more modern approach, consider looking at the Regency. The Regency range features clean lines and a super viewing glass so you can kick back relax and get lost in the mesmerising flames. The Regency has a high output and is great for heating large spaces.

The Jotul 305 is an absolute favourite if you are a sucker for all things retro. This is a stylish and unique take on the traditional wood heater and looks like something in a Russ Myer movie. Think Beyond the Valley of Dolls meets the Jetsons in a retro clash of the century. A real head turner that will have your guests commenting at your dinner parties as they congregate around the heater.

When going to purchase a heater, regardless of the size or brand, always ask about the output. The output is measured in kilowatts. The high the number of kilowatts output, the more heat it will produce. This does not necessarily mean the heater with the highest output will be the most efficient. The best way to find out is to ask us at Hawkesbury Heating and we will happily help you find the most efficient heating solution for your home.

So, when it comes times to buying your heater, have a little think about the style you are after and the size of the space you need to heat and we will help you with rest. There are many options on the market and at Hawkesbury Heating we are dedicated to providing you with the best heating option for your home.
