Next Time You Shop for Wood Burners, Log Burners or Fireplaces in Canterbury, Consider Pyroclassic’s Ultra-Low Emission Burner in NZ

Next time you are shopping for wood burners in Canterbury, don’t settle for just any fireplace. At Pyroclassic Fires, we have taken steps to design and build what we think are the next generation of log burners. These fireplaces have low emissions ratings and are extremely energy efficient. They offer longer burning periods, which means you will spend less to keep them stocked with firewood in the winter. Best of all, they are an easy way to reduce your household carbon footprint and join the global fight against greenhouse gas emissions.

The Pyroclassic Mini and ULEB Certification

At Pyroclassic Fires, when we set out to create a low-emissions fireplace, we didn’t just want to use it as a marketing tactic. On the contrary, we wanted to take steps to be at the forefront of low-emissions wood burners in New Zealand. We wanted to do our part in protecting the environment.

With those goals in mind, we set our sights on some major certifications. One of those was the Environment Canterbury Regional Council (ECAN) certification. With an ECAN certification for one of our Canterbury fireplaces, we would be able to classify that fireplace as an ‘ultra-low emission wood burner,’ or ULEB. Under ECAN requirements, a ULEB fireplace has thermal efficiency of 65% or greater and emissions of 38 milligrams per megajoule of heat generated. Fireplaces can only achieve this certification after going through a rigorous testing process.

Fast-forward to now and we are proud to claim an ultra-low emission burner in NZ. Our Pyroclassic Mini model has ECAN certification and can now officially be classified as a ULEB model. The Pyroclassic Mini is our smaller fireplace, intended for houses that are 120 square metres or less.

If you are looking for a large fireplace but still want to purchase a ULEB in NZ, know that we are in the process of pursuing the ECAN certification for our larger model. That model, the Pyroclassic IV, is ideally suited for homes between 130 and 200 square metres in size—though it can be utilised in larger homes as well. We recently had the Pyroclassic IV tested for emissions and thermal efficiency.
