“CHANGING OUT ONE OLD, DIRTY, INEFFICIENT WOOD STOVE IS EQUIVALENT TO THE PM 2.5 POLLUTION REDUCTION OF TAKING FIVE OLD DIESEL BUSES OFF THE ROAD.”
– United States Environmental Protection Agency “Strategies for Reducing Residential Wood Smoke” March 2013
Final New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Residential Wood Heaters
On February 3, 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) strengthened its clean air standards for residential wood heaters to make new heaters significantly cleaner and improve air quality in communities where people burn wood for heat. The updates, which are based on improved wood heater technology, strengthen the emissions standards for new woodstoves.
Benefits to Using a Catalytic Woodstove
Wood stoves need catalysts to reduce the wood smoke. It creates a safer and cleaner environment and reduces the amount of wood needed to achieve the same heating requirements.
Less wood means less expenses and a less wood smoke.
