This may sound crazy, but believe it or not heating your home with wood in an EPA approved, contemporary, efficient wood stove is good for the environment.
Newer wood stoves, manufactured since 1990, approved by the Environmental Protection Agency to meet stringent emissions standards, emit as few as 3 grams per hour of particulate matter.
My wood stove will be heating the house full blast and if you look at the top of the chimney all you can see is a little bit of water vapor coming out the top. Meanwhile, since my house is nice and warm without the use of fossil fuels or electricity powered generated by coal or nuclear, I am fortunate enough to heat my home with a local, renewable form of energy. And that is why heating with wood is good for the environment. And so I’m all out of time for now, but that is an explanation of why heating with wood, in an efficient, EPA approved wood stove, is good for the environment.
