We often think of the square black box when it comes to woodburners for the home, but a new take on the traditional format offers a unique landscape orientation which makes for an experience similar to many gas fireplaces with the beauty of real flames.

Woodburners are a sought-after item in many homes, especially those in colder regions where the heat and ambience of a fire is hard to beat. However, the notion of a woodburner had become synonymous with the black box so many of us will recognise from New Zealand homes.

That’s changed as designers strive to create more contemporary and versatile options, one of which is the landscape wood burner by Aber Living

 

The Regency Montrose is a clean-air wood burner designed for contemporary living, Aber Living’s Nicki Luxton says. “Its sleek landscape profile and zero clearance box means it sits flush with the wall similar to many gas fireplaces, but not in a way we’re used to with woodburners. 

 

“The large landscape-oriented glass viewing area (measuring 850mm by 310mm) with a slimline black-etched edge creates a distinctive profile and a stunning feature in the home, working seamlessly with decor both traditional and contemporary.

“Designed to fit into a custom-built wall without a brick fireplace or chimney means it can be featured in any room of the house.”

 

How to use wood burners as central heating 

While typical central heating systems have their benefits, the beauty of a contemporary in-built wood burner is the ability to use it as both a heat source and design feature for a main living area and as heating for the whole home. 

“The Regency Montrose is an incredibly effective way of heating the home. It is a slow combustion heater that can be controlled to maximise heat output as well as wood usage. The clean air model includes two heat distribution kits as standard - the Regency Montrose wood burner will comfortably heat a house of up to four or five bedrooms,” Nicki says.

Are woodburners a low emission heating source?

With the right design and functionality, contemporary woodburners can provide one of the most effective and clean ways to heat the home, Nicki says.

“For example, fires such as the Regency Montrose are Clean Air Approved, which means emissions are very low and the fire is suitable to be used in most regions throughout the country.”
