Authorised wood burners

This page lists authorised wood burners that have been tested and found to meet the National Environmental Standards for Air Quality at the date of testing. Pellet burners that have been tested and found to meet the NES for Air Quality standards for wood burners are also listed.

All wood burners on this list have a discharge of less than 1.5 grams of particles for each kilogram of dry wood burned (g/kg) and a thermal efficiency of at least 65 per cent. Burners that meet the National Environmental Standards (that is, those on this list) may be installed on properties less than two hectares, anywhere in New Zealand, unless more stringent regional rules apply.

The Ministry has ordered the list based on efficiency. You can filter by individual manufacturers by using the drop box.
