See the smoke pouring out of your chimney? That’s your hard-earned cash, going up in flames.

When you burn through fuel, you also burn through money spent on fuel. Using more efficient “burn right” techniques — or better yet, switching to a more efficient heating stove — reduces the amount of fuel you need to heat your home,  saving money that can be spent on other things.

By some estimations, switching to a high efficiency stove can save households 40% on fuel costs each year. At an average annual fuel cost of approximately $3,200 for households using inefficient wood stoves, this translates into approximately $1,300 in savings every year.
