Fire Installations

Hotspot Installations have been keeping homes warm since 2015. Hotspot work throughout Southland installing wood and multifuel burners to manufacturers' specifications and to council requirements. We can complete and lodge the application for building consent on your behalf and liaise with the District Councils.

There’s quite a process involved in installing a wood burner safely and correctly and a few things are considered including:

  • Fireplace Consent Applications
  • Organising time with a qualified installer
  • Looking at complaint floor protection
  • Sizing up the flue system
  • Getting an appropriate roof flashing so there are no leaks, no matter how hard it rains
  • Delivering the fireplace on site (and boy are they heavy!)
  • Getting a rundown on how to operate the new fireplace, safely and efficiently
  • Meeting your local Council Code of Compliance regulations


With years of experience, we know what we’re doing. We can help from the Consent Application through to ensuring clearances are met to manufacturer guidelines. For us, it’s about ensuring you get a fireplace that will not only heat your home efficiently but also fits in with the look and style of your property, adding value to what may be your biggest asset.

If you’re unsure of what would work in your home in terms of heat output, and style, come visit our showrooms to discuss your options and see some of our fireplaces to better make a decision. Located at 96 Kelvin Street, Invercargill,. We are open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.

Interested in Retrofitting a New Fireplace?

A big part of retrofitting a new burner is ensuring you match the size of your cavity or hearth. Meeting clearance guidelines can also affect the size of your new burner. If you visit us instore, be sure to bring measurements and photos with you or call and have us take measurements to ensure accuracy. From there, we can discuss what would work in your home and look at the different options from wood to multifuel and pellet fires.

Do you meet the National Environmental Standards (NES) for Air Quality?

A lot of people throughout Southland, particularly in Invercargill and Gore, are replacing their burners to meet the National Environmental Standards (NES) for air quality. If you’re unsure as to whether you meet NES requirements for air quality, download this PDF from Environmental Southland and get in touch.

Right from the start, we can provide a full written estimate outlining all the components necessary for the installation. We’re happy to visit your home to take exact measurements and see what would work best for you. We’ve got a great range of options, so visit our showroom to see what would work in your home. Whether you’re installing new or retrofitting, we’ll be able to find you an option from one of the following brands; Kent, Jayline, Bosca, Fisher, Woodsman, Masport, Ethos, Wagener, Ravelli, Blaze King, Enviro, Firenzo, Nectre, and Warmington.
