Why Wood Heat?

Wood fuel is one of the best value choices for heating your home. It also provides a beautiful and satisfying way to heat that increases energy independence while staying more economical. Even if you buy wood, you are most likely keeping those wood purchasing dollars in the local economy. Today’s EPA (environmental protection agency) standards set forth in 1992 require wood stoves to produce less than 7.5 grams of smoke per hour (most stoves sold prior to ’92 had averaged 42 grams per hour). So today’s stoves are far more efficient, use less wood and provide substantially more heat. Electricity is not needed to heat with wood stoves, so in the event of a power outage, you can stay warm. It is possible to cook on most wood stoves as well. You’re much less likely to worry about frozen water pipes – or hotel bills – during a bad winter storm. Wood is the ultimate renewable energy source . With oxygen, sun and rain, we’ll always have plenty of economical wood available. Also, chopping wood is one opportunity for exercise – and the personal satisfaction of being part of the process of providing wood for your own heating. No two fires burn alike – so it’s great to be able to watch and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
