If you are unaware, there is some imperative information you need to know when buying any heater into any home with a 6+ Star rating
High efficient homes with 6+ Star Ratings are common to be so sealed ( negative pressured), and there are requirements for ANY appliance that uses oxygen for combustion to have fresh air to compensate this
........In English : if you have a home with a 6+ star rating home - you need to buy a heater that has a fresh air inlet that vents air from outside to the heater
Gas Heaters..Power Flue or Direct Vent (DV) Flue heater options are the way to go
......All Pacific Energy Gas fires are Direct Vent (DV)
Wood heaters... There are a number of brands that offer FRESH AIR Intakes
......All Pacific Energy Wood Heaters offer this option ......All True North Wood Heaters offer this option
.......WHAT IS FRESH AIR INTAKE ?......
Wood Heaters with this feature have a inlet (normally at the back or underneath the firebox ) that all allows you to connect a duct that you can vent to the outside - thus the wood heater draws the air from outside for the combustion / not from the room
****NOTE... heaters with this feature allow you to either bring fresh air to out the back of your wood heater.. our underneath your wood heater to allow you to vent through the floor, venting to out side
......HOW TO DO THIS......
If buying a wood heater, select a brand that offers a fresh air inlet ( ALL Pacific Energy and True North Wood Heaters offer this)
The optional fresh air inlet kits provide the adapter to connect to 100mm pipe ( pipe not included )
Vent this pipe to outside either directly out the back or up, inside the wall cavity, to out side our (if possible ) underneath, to out side
Use a vent cap to ensure no vermin can enter this pipe ( these are easily available ant any hardware store )
Not only will this proved a solution for your home, but will improve the air quality in any home
