There are certainly large differences between heating with wood compared to fossil fuels. Are you considering making the switch to a wood-based heating system? Read on to see the benefits of wood burning and check out some great wood stoves and inserts available now at Northline Express.
Perks of heating with wood
- Wood is a naturally-derived, renewable, sustainable resource
- Eco-friendly! Wood burning is effectively carbon-neutral (aka, no carbon dioxide emissions). Live trees eliminate carbon dioxide from the environment; so, although burning wood does release carbon dioxide, a delicate equilibrium is maintained
- Wood is an excellent heat source. Heat from a wood stove is thrown off in all directions, producing what is called "radiant heat." According to the Department of Energy, radiant heat is more efficient and can heat your room/home quicker than forced-air heating since there are no duct losses
- Burning wood is overall cheaper than gas, coal, or oil (especially if you harvest the wood yourself!)
- Wood stoves are not dependent on electricity. Should a power outage occur, your wood stove will be there to keep you warm and provide a means for cooking
