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. Those Pennsylvania Electric Co. customers with electric heat won't be facing increased cost this year as rates remain unchanged....

By Tremblay, Kenneth NORTH CAROLINA-A physically handicapped 76-year-old woman died in a fire in her single-story, ranch-style home that started after a pan of oil was left cooking unattended on the stove.

By Bill Leukhardt, The Hartford Courant, Conn. Jul. 19--On a beach-perfect July Wednesday, winter's distant chill drove Dan and Terri Bohn from their comfortable Bristol home into a Plantsville store that sells wood-burning stoves. The couple spent part of the afternoon immersed in home heating options -- sweating slightly as they checked heat output from test stoves burning wood pellets and compared equipment that might help trim their winter heating bills. "I'm on vacation, but the...

By Anonymous Maine does not have oil wells, gas fields or coal mines. Most of the fuel we burn to heat and light our homes has to be imported, leaving us vulnerable to national and international energy market fluctuations. But we do have trees. Lots of them. So naturally, when an energy crisis hits, many Mainers do what they have always done and burn wood to heat their homes. The manufacture of processed wood pellets has taken this a step further. Either in stoves or central heating...

By Nina Rizzo, Asbury Park Press, N.J. Jul. 8--Irene Borghaus and her husband, Karl, were concerned about the high cost of heating their home after the 1973 energy crisis, but there weren't many cheaper alternatives to home heating oil back then. That is, until they discovered a high-efficiency wood stove in 1976, and they rarely turned up their thermostat again. "I find it delightful," Irene Borghaus said, referring to the warm glow of the fire. "I can't imagine living without...

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...
