AJs Woodburners




We are able to supply: 

  • All Woodfire flue components and parts
  • Heat transfer kits
  • We can also source all makes and models of Woodfires.


We offer a full process of installation starting from Consultation and Site Measures to Building Consents and finally the installation of your new or secondhand woodfire.

Heat Transfer Ducting Kits to take excess hot air to other rooms can be installed including electrical.

Servicing & Inspections

All Woodfires should be serviced annually or bi-annually – this includes inspection of bricks, baffles and door ropes. 
These should be re-placed as they can reduce the efficiency of your Woodfire. They can be replaced as required. 

We can also provide a chimney clean if needed. 
We offer pre winter inspections for peace of mind and also if purchasing a new home we can provide a full inspection of the fire and installation.

Durability Certificates can be provided for second hand fires.

We also advise our customers not to burn wet wood – as this can clog up the flue.

"So stoked with the job, all of you have been very professional. Thank-you so much, much appreciated." Kiri McGuire


"AJ and Hadlee did a wonderful job, they installed our new Woodsman Wood-fire and a 3 Room Transfer Kit. They made sure everything was fitted to our liking. measured and adjusted position to fit to all regulations, and they cleaned up after themselves. AJ arranged for Nick the electrician to be at ours at the right time and day. As we had to re-arrange our install day (due to things outside either of our control) AJ sorted everything for us and had everything installed before Christmas as promised. All 3 of them (thats AJ, Hadlee and Nick) worked really well together, I would highly recommend them to anyone installing a Wood-fire or transfer kit and would use them again at the drop of a hat. Thank-you."  Diane Baldie


"Big Thanks to AJ stepping in at short notice to install my Metro Wood-fire, a quick and efficient service very much appreciated."  Wayne Gilmer

"We were very pleased with AJ and the team at Living Lifestyles.  We had a Metro fire installed earlier this year which we are very happy with, latterly we had AJ fit solar tubes to our new roof.  His team worked efficiently, speedily and professionally, they left a very tidy house and their workmanship was excellent.  We would highly recommend Living Lifestyles to anyone needing their help."  Thanks Diane & Paul Murray


"We would like to thank you for an absolutely mint install. Also we really appreciated the care you took of our property while working here." Ollie & Nikki King


"We asked Living Lifestyles to help us replace a poor performing open fireplace. From the start the team demonstrated a clear understanding of our need and provided confidence that they knew what they were doing.  AJ constantly communicated the steps which helped us plan around the decommissioning and installation activities, and where it didn’t work AJ accommodated our schedule. Living Lifestyles were able to supply the Metro Fire wood burner along with arranging the council permitting making the whole experience hassle free."
