Temperatures are dropping and thermostats are
going up! As heating bills start to rise, more
people are looking into heating their homes with
wood. Heating with wood can save you money while
helping the local economy. It also has enormous
environmental benefits over oil and other fossil
fuels, including lower transportation needs and
reduced environmental impact of extraction, and
it leads to better management of our forests and
results in near zero net carbon emissions. The
key to making the most of this precious resource
is proper harvesting and employing best burn
practices so that emissions are kept at a
minimum, efficiencies are as high as possible,
and it can be sustainably harvested for generations to come.
If you now heat with firewood or pellets, or if
youre interested in changing 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.
