Ethos Woodfires

NEW ZEALAND'S CLEANEST RANGE OF WOODFIRES AND LOG BURNERS

Designed and manufactured in New Zealand, Ethos Woodfires represent the evolution of the wood fire as a clean and efficient heating solution.

High Output Power

Ultra high temperature combustion air is force fed into three independent burn chambers at the rear of the firebox as well as one at the front.

Combustion extreme.

BIG THINGS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES
The combination of highly pre-heated combustion air and the specially designed Ethos firebox with four independent burn areas acts like a supercharger for burning wood.

Nearly everything burns, from the solids and volatiles to the smoke itself. This is key to why our fires are so efficient at generating heat, and why their emissions are so low.

We regularly receive feedback from new owners amazed that they are getting so much heat from so few trips to the wood stack.

Other fires billow smoke from their chimneys, but with an efficient Ethos your neighbours will be hard-pressed to tell your fire is going.

Better for your fuel costs, better for the environment, and far less residual ash to clean in the morning. 

The fire also burns brightly, so you are rewarded with a more entertaining visual experience while you enjoy the heat.

What’s not to love?

Ethos woodfires are unique in that they don’t draw their combustion air from the room being heated, or even from elsewhere in the dwelling.

Instead the EconAir Induction flue system is bi-directional, and draws all its combustion air from outside via the flue outer layer.

The patented Ethos system has numerous advantages:

  • Eliminates cold drafts in the home
  • No need to vent the room in modern airtight design buildings
  • Incoming air is pre-heated by the exhaust gases to over 300°C creating greater combustion, higher efficiency and reduced emissions
  • No backpressure and quieter operation in windy areas
  • The fire burns brightly, for greater ambience

HOW THE ETHOS ECONAIR FLUE SYSTEM WORKS

Combustion air is drawn from outside the home, down the outer section of the flue system.

The incoming air is pre-heated by the hot exhaust gases travelling up the centre of the flue system to over 300°C before entering the firebox.

Using combustion air from outside keeps your warm air inside the home and eliminates the uncomfortable drafts often caused by conventional flue logburners.

The EconAir bi-directional flue system will not interfere with other ventilation devices in your home, like extractor fans, range hoods, and home ventilation systems, reducing smoke blow back into the room, and wind noise.

AFFORDABLE, ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY, LOWER EMISSION HEAT. THATS OUR PROMISE

Burning correctly seasoned wood from sustainable resources, Ethos woodfires give an environmentally friendly and cost effective way to heat your space.

Lower emissions ratings means Ethos woodfires are well below the strictest emission standards across both Australia and New Zealand.

Burning wood is considered carbon-neutral because it does not increase the amount of carbon dioxide cycling through the atmosphere.

Carbon is continually cycling through all living plants and animals. Growing trees convert carbon dioxide to woody biomass, so carbons released from burning wood are actually processed naturally by growing trees and turned into more wood. It’s all part of a tree’s natural growth cycle.

ETHOS DESIGNER, PAUL SINTES

Ethos Woodfires was founded in 2000 to assist reduce the air pollution problems in Christchurch, New Zealand; necessary as it appeared at the time the only option for the local council to reduce air emissions was to ban woodfires completely.

Christchurch experiences subzero winter temperatures, and the opposition to banning woodfires was strong, with fears that many would struggle to endure winter without them.

Ethos Woodfire designer Paul Sintes decided he could design and build a cleaner wood fire than was then available, and he did exactly this, releasing the Genesis in 2001.

Following the work he did in this region, in 2003 Paul Sintes received the shown Achievement Award from the Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand for the significant contribution to the improvement of air quality that Ethos fires made to the Christchurch area over this time.

No other fire or designer in Australia or New Zealand has received this honour, it is an award we at Ethos Woodfires are very proud of.

Paul Sintes continues to design our Ethos models today.
