New guides give advice on heating with wood

MONTPELIER – The Vermont State Wood Energy Team has announced the availability of two new resources for modern wood heating.
“A Practical Guide to Modern Wood Heating: Successful Conversion to Wood Heating for Schools in Vermont” and “A Practical Guide to Modern Wood Heating: Successful Conversion to Wood Heating for Affordable Housing in Vermont” are comprehensive guides intended to educate administrators, building managers, and school boards about the possibilities for wood heat as a lower-cost, more predictable, stable, and local energy source.
These 70-page guides provide insight on wood fuel types, pricing, and installation considerations, and offer additional resources and case studies. They were created to increase awareness of the viability of modern wood heating and ensure that potential projects employ best in class technology and design and management practices.
Both guides are available free online and in print by request.  The PDFs are available online. For schools go to bit.ly/2EWYwQM. For affordable housing go to bit.ly/2qq6eQe.
To request a print copy, contact Emma Hanson, Wood Energy Coordinator, Vermont Department of Forests, Parks & Recreation at  [email protected] or 802-622-4187.
