Ned Kelly Glenrowan wood heaters
When we recommend this product
Locally made in Daylesford by Ned Kelly Heaters, the Glenrowan is available in two sizes. The Large Glenrowan is rustic in appearance and easy to install into new and existing fireplaces. This slow combustion insert is environmentally friendly and maintains low emissions. With a large self cleaning glass door, its triple burn firebox extracts maximum heat and its powerful two speed fan circulates warm air quickly and efficiently. With an emission factor of 2.3g/kg and a maximum heat capacity of 15.1 kW, it is capable of heating a house of 25 squares and will burn all night long. The Small Glenrowan works like its larger counterpart and has the same two speed fan. With an emission factor of 1.6 g/kg it is capable of heating 15 squares with a maximum heat average of 12.3 kW.
Wood heaters provide a practical alternative for people who don't have access to town gas. Modern wood heater design ensures that wood heaters meet the strict Australian standards for environmental emissions AS-4013-1999. Airtight slow burn heaters are the most efficient type of wood heater on the market with electrical fans aiding the heat distribution. We recommend that all wood is sourced from a sustainable managed forest to ensure the maximum environmental benefits from your heater.
How to get the most from this product
Before buying a wood heater you must decide what you want from the heater.
• How big an area or how many rooms do you want to heat
• How long do you want to heat the rooms for
• Will you use other types of heating
• Where will the wood come from and how much will it cost
When purchasing your heater bring along your floor plan so the retailer can size a unit accurately and suggest the best position for its installation. Ceiling fans on winter cycle can aid movement of the hot air back down to floor level. If you want to heat more than one room consider installing a heat shifter system to transfer the heat form one room to another (see heater shifter fact sheet). Wood heaters should only be installed by a licensed Plumber.
