Tips for Heating with Wood


| 12/14/2007 12:00:00 AM


When it's cold outside, who doesn't love a cozy fireplace or woodstove? Wood heat is a comfortable way to warm your home, and there are many reasons it's a practical choice, too.

For one thing, in many parts of the United States and Canada firewood is abundant and inexpensive. Another benefit is that it's a reliable source of power, because unlike most other heat sources, it doesn't rely on electricity. If you heat with wood, even during a blackout, your home will stay warm.

Choosing wood heat is a good option for the environment, too. Burning wood does release some pollutants, but EPA-certified woodstoves are very clean burning. And wood is both a renewable source of fuel, and carbon neutral.

 Whether you're considering buying a woodstove, or just wondering how to get the greatest benefit from your fireplace, a few simple tips can make it easier to work with firewood and help you heat your home more efficiently. Check out these helpful resources for more information.
