We put all the information about wood in one place and offer practical advice on how best to heat with wood.

What do you do when a fire, contained in a wood stove, gets out of hand? Or what do you do if you must extinguish that merry blaze, NOW? Ever try to extinguish a fire in a wood stove? Flue fires are dealt with, too. So is stove and chimney maintenance.

Are the materials in the carpet, curtains, upholstery, that are near the stove fireproof? Or do they go up in flames with a single spark? There's a way you can test them.. . safely.

I m going to buy my first woodstove: But I don't know what they are talking about. Will the size wood I can get fit into that stove? Can I lift the pieces? What is a cord? How much wood does it take to keep my house warm? Where do I store the wood? Who carries the wood in to the stove? What about bugs?

There are laws regulating wood stoves. What should I know?

Pellet stoves have principal advantage in that a high heat content fuel has become available that s also ecologically sound. It is a special section in this book, but the next edition will probably be on Pellet Stoves with a section on wood burners. But what are the advantages and what are the disadvantages? How do they work and what needs maintenance?

If you want a backup heat source in case your furnace fails, is a pellet stove a good way to go? What else can be burned in a pellet stove? What happens if the electronics fails? Or the motors quit? (There's more than one motor in there). Or the electricity fails? It's all in the book. This is a consumer s book. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
