All wood heaters manufactured must adhere to the Australian Standard for wood heater emissions (AS/NZS 4013) ensuring they are clean burning and environmentally responsible. Wood heaters tested after 8th August 2014 will comply with the lower emission levels of 2.5 grams of particulate emissions per kilo of wood burnt, and have an efficiency requirement of 55%.
It is illegal to sell wood heaters that do not comply with AS/NZS 4013, except in South Australia where the standard is yet to be introduced.
The AHHA encourages consumers to replace wood heaters that were manufactured prior to 1992, and to look for the AHHA and Landcare logos to ensure the new wood heater complies with current standards and has minimal impact on the environment.
Our strong commitment to air quality and the promotion of wood heaters as a clean and efficient form of heating, the AHHA has instituted a robust Certification Procedure to ensure the wood heater models offered for sale comply with the current Australian/New Zealand Standards AS/NZS 4012/4013.
