The company’s latest releases are part of the Woodsman new generation of Ultra Low Emission Burners (ULEB). The Woodsman Serene Petite is, as the name suggests, a smaller version of the com- pany’s popular Serene ULEB. Harris Home Fires managing director Rich- ard Harris says that the Serene Petite meets the growing need for people who have smaller or extremely well insulated homes. He says that Serene has outperformed the testing standards for emissions and efficien- cy, meaning it can be installed in any home throughout New Zealand. Combined with no expensive electrical installation required, no additional expen- sive components needed and no complex operating requirements seen with other ULEB burners, Serene has been a best seller for the company. “We aim to unite the newest combustion technology with the latest design along with making the easiest to use wood burners on the market,” he says. Continuing Harris Home Fires vision to bring to customers the most user-friendly, easy to maintain, value for money wood burners, which can be installed in even the tightest of clean air zones in the country, the company’s other new release is the Woodsman Coleridge ULEB. “Simplicity is the key and the Coleridge achieves ultra clean burning without the need for fans, or other types of systems which re- quire special operational methods or addition- al maintenance,” explains Richard. “With its sustained burn cycle the new Col- eridge maximises burn time for each load of fuel while still producing a good heat to keep your family toasty warm.” Harris Home Fires had its beginnings in 1887. Richard is the fifth generation to work in the family owned and operated business based in Christchurch. He says wood burners have evolved hugely over the years, particularly recently with local authorities in Christchurch placing greater restrictions. Every Woodsman wood fire is ECan and NES clean air-approved meaning that Woods- man now offers some of the cleanest burning technology available on the market. Richard says that wood burners are expe- riencing a resurgence as people realise that new technology products can be a more en- vironmentally friendly option compared with other alternatives. “Wood burners are carbon neutral when sourced from renewable sources. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. When burned the wood releases this but it is once again absorbed by trees growing so it’s a carbon neutral cycle. “This is different to oil or gas, which when released from the ground into the environ- ment is not captured again.” T Karen Phelps With over 130 years of design and innova- tion behind Woodsman products, Richard says that Harris Home Fires products are designed for performance and built to last as well as offering the latest designer looks. The range offers wood, multi-fuel and oil options and includes insert, zero clearance and free-standing models in both traditional and contemporary styles. Each fire is hand- crafted in New Zealand.
