Wood heating is becoming more popular these days as a cost effective way to heat the family home. There are many benefits of using a wood heater such as cost savings, reducing green house gas emissions compared to other forms of heating and getting an effective output of heat for the whole home. There are many things to consider when buying a wood heater, such as the different types of wood heaters, size for the area you want to heat, placement in the house of the wood heater, and finally color scheme so the wood heater fits in seamlessly with your house decor.
So the first thing to consider when buying a wood heater for sale is the type. There are two main types of wood heaters, being the convection, fan forced and radiant wood heaters.
The convection wood heater is an advanced form of wood heater that has air cavities built between the heater casing and a decorative outer casing which may be tiled, specifically designed glass, or enamel.
The convection wood heater allows the air to heat up in this area more rapidly and studies report that up to 3 cubic meters of hot air can be produced in 1 minute, providing an effective way to heat your whole home.
The fan forced wood heater used the technology of the convection heater and uses a fan to move the air out more rapidly, allowing a larger area to be heated affectively. The fan forced wood heater normally has a few settings for the fan so you can control the heating process.
The radiant wood heaters are the standard wood heaters that have the sides of the heater exposed to the air. The pot belly wood heater is a common example. They are most effective to heat single rooms.
Next, you need to consider where in the house to place your wood heater. Most commonly they are placed in the lounge room, as this is where you spend most of your time. However, there are a number of other factors to consider about placement of your heater.
It is important to have your wood heater as central as possible so the heat can penetrate all areas of the house including the bedrooms. You also want to have the wood heater out of the way, so it is safe and not a hindrance to fee movement through the house. Finally, you want the wood heater to be a feature. There is a lot to consider when placing your wood heater. If in double, you could get advice from a distributor.
