Will a wood fire heat my whole home?

The correctly sized wood fire for a home is important. Too large and it will be forever run on low causing poor combustion and creosote problems restricting the flue updraft. Too small and it will fail to generate sufficient heat to warm the area.

Kent always recommends a site check of the home by a certified fire installer before installation. Bear in mind that while the wood fire may generate sufficient heat it then has to be circulated throughout the home. If the house doesn’t allow natural dispersal of heat (e.g high ceilings, long hallways etc) circulation can be improved with a ceiling fan or heat transfer kit.

How often should I empty the ashes?

Due to the high efficiency of Kent wood fires, ash removal should only be necessary every few weeks. Ashes can be scooped up and removed easily through the door opening.

Kent wood fires work best when a small amount of ash (approximately 20mm deep) is left in the firebox after cleaning. This insulates the bottom and prevents the base of the wood fire from overheating and burning out. In fact, building up the ash bed helps extend the long burn cycle, while reducing the ash bed encourages greater heat output.


About Kent

Kent is a heritage wood fire brand; known for providing reliable, high quality, and affordable wood fires for New Zealand households for 40 years. Over 400,000 homes have a Kent fire installed, no wonder the brand is synonymous with home heating for most New Zealanders.

The Kent heating brand began in the South Island in the early sixties, and rapidly made a name for itself as an innovative wood burner, due to its unique use of internal baffles to optimise the efficiency of the firebox.
