If your wood stove was manufactured before 1990, it probably isn’t certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Typically older stoves will release 15 to 30 grams of smoke per hour. Over the years the designs and standards of wood stoves have changed. Newer EPA-certified models only release about 2 to 7 grams of smoke per hour, which will cut your emissions by more than half.
Save Money and Energy
A new wood stove will use about one-third less wood as your older model, saving you time and money. Burning the right wood will also ensure efficiency. Here is an energy savings calculator to show how much you can save with a newer and cleaner model. Also, by shopping for a new stove closer to spring time you might be able to find better deals!
Protect Your Health
You’ve probably heard about the benefits of creosote removal, so why not skip a step? Newer wood stove models are designed to reduce the amount of creosote build-up, which reduces the risk of fire. Since newer models produce less smoke, you will also greatly decrease your exposure to harmful air pollutants and toxins that can cause health problems.
