Pellet Fuel



"What's in my wood pellets?"

We understand that if that you have spent thousands of dollars investing in a pellet fire, you'll want to know exactly what is going into our fuel. This is why we guarantee that our wood pellets are produced from 100% Nelson-grown pine.

Nelson pine isn't like any ordinary pine: we've been gifted with extremely low- silica soils in our region. This means the wood harvested in Nelson produces less ash and a longer, hotter burn in your pellet fire.
"What's really in the bag I purchase?"

At Azwood, we back our product 100%. When a customer wanted to know what exactly was in the bag, we turned directly to optimising our packaging. The new premium, see-through packaging will allow you to purchase the product knowing exactly what you are buying. We have confidence that our product will give you the warmth you need along with the convenience of 10 or 15kg bag sizes. 
"Is there anything I can do when I have to travel to a store, and they're out of stock?"

We had feedback that customers were travelling long distances to stores, only to find out they didn't have the product in stock, (particularly when the first cold snap hits or at the tail end of the season).

Azwood is in frequent contact with all our suppliers; however, demand doesn't always forecast down to the individual bag. Because of this, we have launched OnFire®- OnDemand. It's an easy way for you to make sure that your preferred store has stock available for you to purchase.

Just head to our OnDemand page, and we'll make sure your store has stock. It's that simple.
"I enjoy the updates and competitions you provide, but how do I know if I'm in to win?"
As an OnFire® Premium customer, you will have access to special competitions only available to OnFire® Premium customers. This not only improves your chance of winning but also means you will be able to keep up to date with the latest news on our product. Lastly, all OnFire® Premium customers will automatically be entered into future competitions following their first competition entry.


Quality Wood Pellet Fuel With Great Value


The highest quality wood pellet fuels. Firetime® & Onfire® Wood Pellet Fuel are rated by many Kiwis who say they "burn longer" and "hotter"This helps keep your home warm & healthy and leaving the environment clear & clean. See how Kiwis rate our pellet fuel

Our Wood Pellet Fuel is a 100% natural product that comes from totally renewable resources and has far less emissions than other fuels, meaning it is kinder on the environment. Firetime® & Onfire® is made from natural pine wood residues from local sawmills & timber contractors. The material then goes through a process to compress them together, being bound together by the lignin which is naturally in the wood pellet. The final product is a golden coloured wood pellet with a pleasant pine smell.

Azwood Energy, which makes Firetime and OnFire branded pellets, stand behind our product 100%. If ever our fuel is proven to be behind any damage to any pellet fire we would cover the cost under warranty. This has always been our policy, and always will be.

Onfire® & Firetime® Wood Pellet Fuel burns so efficiently that they are virtually smokeless and less emissions are released than other heating options.
