Best Woods for Home Heating
Best Woods for Home Heating (Video)
Caleb Regan, GRIT Managing Editor, answers a reader-submitted question about wood-burning stoves: “What are the best types of wood for burning, to heat a house with a wood-burning stove?”
Heating your home with a woodstove is an eco-friendly way to stay toasty when the weather turns cold, especially if you pay attention to how much heat you actually need. Caleb tends to choose cooler-burning woods unless the temperature drops very low, having discovered that the house gets too warm otherwise. In general, hardwoods burn longer than softwoods, though softwoods burn hotter while they last.
