Get Your Firewood Ready Now

One of the simplest ways to achieve a hot fire and cleaner wood burning is to burn properly seasoned firewood. Now is the time to acquire your firewood to let it season for six months before you need it next fall. Using only dry, seasoned firewood will help you get the most heat you can from your firewood, saving you money. If you have a moisture meter, insert the meter tip into the long side of a split piece of wood and test it. Firewood with 20% or less moisture is ready to burn.

More information on burning wood in your woodstove is here.


Bright Idea


If every American household replaced just one light bulb with an ENERGY STAR qualified bulb, we would save enough energy to light more than 3 million homes for a year, more than $600 million in annual energy costs, and prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of more than 800,000 cars.

Compact fluorescent light bulbs use about 75% less energy, last up to 10 times longer and produce 90% less heat than standard incandescent bulbs. Using a compact fluorescent light bulb can save more than $30 in energy costs over the lifetime of the bulb.
