Wood Fires are positioned to achieve specified clearances, floor protector requirements and best Flue installation. This information can be found in the product specification sheets or installation instructions available to view or download on most Climate At Home Wood Fire product pages. Its location effects how easy it is to install the Flue and how well your Wood Fire can heat your whole home.

Layout.
Is there only a few ways to work the layout of your room, you may need to work around this.
Is there existing chimney masonry?
Freestanding Wood Fires can be installed anywhere in the room.
It is warmer to face the fire rather than to have your back to it.
If you can avoid having to shift TV cables inside the wall, great.
Pay attention to anything like curtains, couches etc. that could catch on fire.
Metre from the heater is a thought, however refer to instructions for true clearances.

Heat Loss.
A lot of heat can be lost when close to windows in an old drafty house.
Heat can become isolated to a smaller area if you place your Wood Fire in the corner and/or on an outside wall.
Close to the hallway door can increase the chance of heat spreading naturally throughout the house.
On an internal wall and towards the centre of the house can assist in heating your whole home.
Heat Transfer Kits can be installed to shift excess heat to, and take the chill off, other rooms in the house.

Flue.
Check the roof space to ensure there is clearance for the Flue to be easily installed.
Closer to the centre of the house can make it easier for the external Flue to reach required heights.
