Trending Tuesday

Can you do it here?


TRENDING TUESDAY!!! This current cold snap has us dreaming of sitting by this gorgeous open Belgian made fireplace ?

But could you have an open wood fireplace in your own home under the BCA? The use of open flame heaters is tightly regulated and it’s your responsibility under the Environmental Protection Act 1994 to ensure you don’t cause smoke nuisance to neighbours. You should also check that when purchasing a wood heater it has an undamaged compliance plate to show that it is certified to the current Australian Standard AS4013 and that it is installed by an experienced, professional tradesperson to meet the current Australian Standard AS/NZS 2918m.

But in short…. that’s a yes for an open wood fireplace!
