• Today’s Amazing Technologies for Wood Stoves
    There are many benefits to heating with a wood stove, particularly if you have access to free or inexpensive cord wood. And today’s wood stoves are highly efficient, with built-in technologies that help you to get the most value out of the wood you haul, store and stack.

    The most efficient wood stoves are EPA-certified. In the mid-1980s, the U.S. government enlisted stringent standards for wood-burning appliances, requiring they burn clean and expel low amounts of particulates into the outside air. In addition to being better for the environment, EPA-certified stoves are equipped with technology that allows for extended burn times and high heat output.

    Today’s technologies for wood stoves make the early 1980s stoves look like something out of the dark ages. For instance, Harman wood stoves feature the company’s exclusive FireDome technology, which produces both primary and secondary combustion, meaning that in addition to burning wood, it re-burns the smoke and exhaust. And because it’s non-catalytic, the system does not degrade in performance over time. Watch a video about FireDome here.

    In addition to these benefits, a single load of wood in one of these stoves can burn and produce heat for greatly extended periods, requiring less trips to the wood pile. Another benefit is that EPA-certified stoves reduce the accumulation of creosote, a flammable chimney residue.
