It's Time To Refresh Your Pellet Stove Knowledge


Recommended Posts

Pellet stoves in particular are seeing a strong comeback.

This article illustrates the renewed popularity of wood stoves.

Do you know everything that you need to know about how they should be installed and how to inspect them?

Do you know how to tell when a stove is EPA certified?

One of my inspectors burns corn to heat his 6500sq ft house. He is nuts at $6.60 per bu. We have seen only one or two out of a hundred or so pellet stoves properly installed. They are all nasty in any event. Pellet stoves and appliances are two items we stopped inspecting years ago.

Mike, that is good stuff you linked to. Everyone should read it. Thanks
