H & H Firewood and Coal is ready
and waiting as winter approaches,
offering customers plentiful supplies
for firing at its Kaiata Park operation.
Owner Brian Hahn and site
manager Shane Muncaster started
the business at Christmas time and
have built up their stocks of Heaphy’s
coal and a wide range of firewood
including beech, pine and oregon, as
well as mill offcuts.
The Heaphy’s coal, a clean burning
coal sourced near Berlins, in the
Buller Gorge, is making an impact
when it comes to homes fires and
winter heating, and is receiving a
popular response from customers,
“It is a medium burning coal with
low ash, low soot and dust. It is very
popular and the Asthma Society
gives it the thumbs up as well, which
is pretty good.”
Both the coal and firewood is
loaded on site on to trailers, trucks,
into boots or is bagged, and H & H
Firewood and Coal will also deliver,
“ We do deliveries, whether it be
half-truck or full-truck loads and we
are just a phone call away, but for
customers who enjoy bringing the
trailer out we have easy access at
Kaiata Park with its tarseal approach
and stocks of wood and coal close by
“ The coal we sell basically burns
away to nothing, hardly any ash left,
it’s good for banking and it is just a
good all-round coal — good for the
open fires and good also for multi-
Put a bit of wood on the burner
and add a shovel full of Heaphy’s coal
and away you go.”
While H & H Firewood and Coal has
all bases covered when it comes to
firing needs it also offers a choice of
landscaping materials as well with
supplies of beech bark, lime chip,
rustic beech sleepers, and compost.
“ We are hoping to get more into the
landscaping area and will soon have
a good supply of big rocks, which
gives people that other landscaping
and garden option,”
Brian Hahn and Shane Muncaster at their
H & H Firewood and Coal operation, at Kaiata Park.

Firewood and coal for your winter warmth
• Talk to your electricity company about which
plan is best for you. Most companies provide
options including direct debits at a flat rate all
year round, pre-payment meters and low use
rates for people who are very frugal.
• Most of your electricity bill will go on hot
water so use less if you can. Set your washing
machine on a cold wash and rinse your dishes in
cold water. Take short showers instead of baths.
Showers use 60% less water than baths.
• Fix dripping taps — A dripping hot tap can
cost $80 a year but a washer to fix it costs less
• If your hot water cylinder is old, keep the heat
in by using a hot water cylinder wrap. These are
available from hardware stores. Make sure the
thermostat is set to produce a temperature of
55degC at the tap.
• Always turn the lights off in rooms when you
leave them. But if you are using energy efficient
light bulbs it is better to leave them on if you are
returning within ten minutes.
• Appliances that have a standby function,
such as televisions, stereos, mobile chargers,
computers or microwaves, should be turned off
at the wall. This can save you up to $75 a year.
• Clothes dryers can be very expensive to run
so try not to use them unless you really have to.
Heated towel rails are also expensive and cost
around $120 a year to run.
• Make sure there is generous air space behind
the back of your fridge and try to locate it out
of direct sunlight, or in a cooler room like the
laundry. Don’t open the fridge door too often or
leave it open.
• Make sure you cool food before putting it in
the fridge. Turn off your second or ‘drinks’ fridge -
this could be costing you $190 per year.
• When cooking keep the oven door closed.
Always keep lids on pots and use as little water as
possible to cook foods. Simmer rather than boil
food and if possible use a microwave, as this uses
30-40 per cent less power than a conventional
oven. Defrost food naturally if possible, rather
than in the microwave.

Try not to dry clothes indoors
as this creates moisture in the air.
Drying on the outside is free and the
sunlight kills bacteria, making your
clothes healthier for you and your
family. Use a shed or garage if it is
To reduce moisture caused by
steam, always open a window when
you are showering and when you are
cooking on the stove top. Use pot
lids to reduce the amount of steam
escaping. Keep doors to bedrooms
closed at these times as steam can
make beds damp.
If you must use a clothes dryer,
make sure your clothes are properly
spun first and leave windows open
while you are using it - or even better,
vent it outside.
