By Steve Bennish Staff Writer Free firewood is one of the big upsides to the aftermath of the Sept. 14 windstorm that hit the Miami Valley and southwest Ohio. With natural gas costs expected to soar, having a wood stove or fireplace insert as a standby heat source should pay off. The key is knowing how and what to safely burn. That means that the storm's bounty -- fashioned from the limbs, branches and sections of trees felled -- should be allowed to dry until next winter before it is...

By Jobetta Hedelman Like several fashion trends of the 1970s, the wood stove is in vogue again after decades of being passed over for more convenient heating methods.

Nationwide, sales were up 58 percent in the first quarter of 2008 compared with the same period a year ago, according to the Hearth Patio & Barbecue Association. That increase will likely widen in the second quarter as many have already...

The Aug. 13 editorial on the costs of the Bow power plant upgrade states the costs have doubled to install scrubbers. Gee, hasn't the cost of everything doubled in the last few years? On the other hand, a new coal-fired plant producing the same amount of energy would cost several billion dollars, but PSNH is not allowed to build new power plants. If the plant is eliminated, then energy needs will have to be filled on the spot market at a much higher price than PSNH would charge. The...

Demand for wood burning appliances has reached unprecedented levels during what normally is the slowest time of the year for the industry. That would be good news to retailers such as Jim Hubenthal, owner of All Seasons Fireplace in Brentwood, except for one problem: He can't sell what he can't get....

An Associated Press article (July 24) regarding particulate emissions of pellet stoves was so one-sided as to be little more than an advertisement for oil dealers. The story spotlighted the one area in which fuel oil is cleaner than pellets (particulate emissions) and conveniently ignored many other considerations which make wood pellets a superior choice for the environment. That the "study" was commissioned by the Maine Oil Dealers Association raises serious questions about its objectivity....

By Keith Gushard, The Meadville Tribune, Pa. Jul. 29--Natural gas customers aren't the only ones who will be facing hefty increases in home heating costs come this winter. Rising energy costs have pushed prices for heating oil and propane up more than 50 percent. While the cost of wood pellets has fallen slightly, corn pellets have about doubled in price.

A gas stove is a cooking device which uses natural gas, propane, butane, Liquefied petroleum gas or other flammable gas as a fuel source. Since the gas pipe network was slow to develop, the success of the gas stove on a commercial level took some time to happen. Gas stoves were invented as early as the 1820's as isolated experiments but it was not until the 1880's that manufactured stoves were sold commercially. The first stoves were large and bulky, but over time they were reduced to fit...
