I have been burning wood stoves as my primary source of heat most of my life. I am very familiar with the function and installation of them. I am a fire bug! I love fire, I love to watch fire, but most of all I love to educate others to do it safely and responsibly.
I actually manage a retail store during the day that sells, installs, cleans, and services all types of stoves. I have installed them myself. I am constantly troubleshooting and talking to customers about the use and operation of wood, gas, and pellet stoves and fireplaces.
On the other side of it I have visited many different manufacturing facilities. Attended tons of factory training’s and the HPBA expo.
I am sharing this all with you because I believe that I am uniquely qualified to share my knowledge and experience with you in a helpful way. I hope that this site will help educate you in an efficient and safe way to heat your home that is responsible for your neighbors and the environment.
I try very hard to keep the articles generic and not trying to sell you on a specific brand or model. (Although I do have my favorites!) 🙂
All feedback is welcome and especially if you have any questions that you would like me to answer specifically I would be happy to do so. My sponsors on the side of the page as well as donations are what support me and keep this site going so visiting them or sending a small donation would be greatly appreciated.
