Peak heat output (kW)
The maximum amount of heat that a fire is capable of producing during the burn cycle. Peak heat output varies for each model due to appliance mass, fuel quality, the amount of fuel used and how frequently the firebox is reloaded during operation.
Heating area and home size
As a guide, 1kW of heat output = 10m2 of heating area. For example a 15kW fire would suit a typical 150m2, 3 bedroom home. Based on a home with a 2.4m ceiling height in an average climate with insulation to current NZ standards.
