Our DL and DX Series fireplaces are all Smart Heat enabled, meaning you can control your fireplace using our smartphone app and web platform. These fireplaces use an Ethernet cable which connects them to a plug-in port on a wireless router.

Purpose built for the residing family, this countryside home in Wanaka (NZ) is an impressive but natural beauty.

Choosing Wanaka as their base was an integral part of the decision process, so they wanted to adequately reflect that choice in the home’s materials. Central Otago schist is generously used throughout the house for framing objects and creating bold entry points; three Escea fireplaces with coal and wood inspired fuel beds echo country elements; “custom rusticated” cedar weatherboard achieves a austere appearance; and finally, plastered Rockcote Integra panel cladding provides a sturdy home foundation.

Research by BRANZ discovered that by using gas and LPG in our homes, we could halve New Zealand’s household electricity demand. Currently, our excessive reliance on electric heating is causing a huge strain in our electricity system in NZ. Even though heating with gas has less impact on the environment than electricity. However, gas heating appliances have a higher initial purchase cost causing people to deter themselves from a gas heating option. When we’re assessing what heating solutions we should put into our home it simply comes down to: efficient natural warmth that adds to your home’s comfort and the health of those in it.

So what is better for your home, electrical or gas heating?
