Grasslands, the outdoor power equipment specialist and wood fire retailer, believes now is the perfect time to plan for your winter heating.

Owners and operators of Grasslands, Steve Anson and Graham Sowden, know their stuff. They have combined knowledge and experience of more than 45 years. “When choosing a wood fire, there are a couple of things to consider to make sure you get the right one for your space. “What type of fire best suits your room? What type of firebox is best?” the said. There are two main types of clean burning fires – convection fires and radiant fires. A convection fire has a casing around the firebox which allows the air to flow. As the air passes the firebox, it is heated. This action is known as convection. Convection fires provide a more even heat to the room. The air is warmed from the ceiling down. It operates in a cycle where it heats the air surrounding the ceiling area first and then pushing the warm air down. The convection fire is more suitable for a room or house with a standard ceiling height and where more even Air conditioning specials on NOW Fully installed from $1795 Limited stock – so be first and not miss out on these prices Call for a free assessment 0800 729 748 www.sayr.co.nz JH11246-v3 For a healthier happier home... ideas for life SHOP 6A/219 MOORE STREET, HOWICK OPEN7AMTO9PM•7DAYS PHONE 09-537-9287 LAUNDROMAT in Moore Street DOWNLOAD THE SHOP APP FOR 20% DISCOUNT Download our app “Moore laundry” and make use of the discount coupons. * (*Conditions apply - refer to the app for conditions) Follow us on Facebook under JMB Enterprises NZ Limited for new offers/discount deals/news/ reviews, etc $3 for small cold heavy wash WE OFFER: Free pick up and delivery within 3km range for a large load (wash and dry); self service; supported service; discounts for senior citizens available JH11897-V2 Call us for more information — we are very flexible! 110028 • Fully qualified experienced staff • Insurance work/ private work • Rust repairs • Quality materials • Spray booth • Free quotes and advice 115B Vincent St, Howick Ph/Fax: 534 1851 Competitive pricing and quick turn around All enquiries welcome ELLIOTSTGIBRALTARSTRODNEYSTVINCENTSTUNIONSTWELLINGTONSTMOORESTCOOKST ELLERSLIE • GLENFIELD GREY LYNN • HAMILTON HOBSONVILLE • HOWICK KUMEU • NEW LYNN SILVERDALE Feeding a natural, species-appropriate, ‘raw meaty bone’ diet to cats & dogs is the best fit for their biology.

Radiant fires heat quickly and if you sit close to them, you can get warm even if the whole room has not had time to warm up. A radiant fire transfers about two thirds of its heat by radiation and one third by convection. A radiant fire is more suitable for rooms with high ceilings. The two types of fireboxes to choose from are cast iron and steel. Cast iron fireboxes generally take a little longer to heat up but also longer to cool once the fire has burned down. They offer superior durability and all Masport cast iron fireboxes come with a 10 year warranty. Steel fireboxes operate the opposite way and heat up quicker but also cool quicker. If you plan to use your wood fire just a few times a week, a steel box would most likely be the better choice for you. “In the winter month wood fres are a big part of our business. “We proudly sell Masport and Metro Wood Burners. “Installation and council consent are included,” Steve and Graham said.
