Heating with wood

With the drop in temperatures, many of us are turning to our fireplaces and wood stoves for heat and comfort.  If you are like me, you may have been building fires for years without realizing that wood heat – if not done properly – can be inefficient and wasteful, and lead to excessive smoke which negatively impacts the environment and neighbors.   I wanted to share with you details of a workshop to help you use your wood stove safely, effectively and cleanly.  You can also refer to their website http://ccetompkins.org/energy/heating-wood for additional information and resources.   ~C Brock

Learn to Burn: the Heating with Wood WorkshopIf you now heat with firewood or pellets, or if you’re interested in moving over to this renewable energy source, this seminar is for you. Come learn about buying and drying firewood, best burn practices, proper maintenance of wood stoves, and an overview of the latest high-efficiency technology now available.
