If you're looking for a way to reduce your high winter heating bills, consider wood heat. It's a green option because wood is a renewable fuel. If you live in a forested area and can cut and split your own wood, heating with wood also can save you money. Wood heat isn't for everyone, so it's a good idea to do your research first to avoid expensive mistakes. But many people discover wood heat is the perfect choice for their homes. If you think you might be one of those people, here are a few things to consider as you begin exploring your options for purchasing a woodstove or other wood heating system.
