1 Way of 24 Ways to Save Energy Now

#5 in the series

Warm up with wood – (check your state laws, some states do not allow new wood burning fireplaces). If you use oil or electric-baseboard heat, installing a wood-burning stove can save you a good sum of money.  According to woodheat.org, a nonprofit endorsing responsibility in using wood for home heating, pre-split wood costs roughly $250 per cord, compared with $440 for the year in fuel oil (at $2.75/gallon), and those who produce their own wood can save more than $2000 annually.  Hire a wood burning specialist to educate you about local regulations, evaluate the chimney requirements and recommend proper floor protection.
