Why every homeowner should look into efficient wood stoves

More than 12 million American households heat their homes with wood stoves, yet 9 million of those stoves are dirty and inefficient. While damaging, this environmental issue doesn’t mean the end of wood stoves. There’s a proven fix — transitioning from old, inefficient wood stoves to modern, EPA-certified models.

To reduce pollution output by half, look for stoves with glass-ceramic fronts, updated combustion technology, and an EPA certification. Upgrading will not only help the environment but also burn less fuel, improve energy efficiency, and save money through federal tax breaks and increased efficiency in heating your home.

Is your wood stove as efficient as it should be? To learn about your stove’s efficiencies, the benefits of modern wood stoves, and what to look for when buying an EPA-certified model, check out SCHOTT’s Wonders of Wood Stoves infographic.

Hi there! I’m Karen Elder, Marketing Manager at SCHOTT North America. I’m responsible for developing and executing marketing and PR strategies for the Home Tech department. I also play a role in product development where I have the opportunity to work with our customers to implement innovation and design. Improving kitchen design is particularly exciting, partially because I love entertaining family and friends and the kitchen is the hub of every dinner party! Before coming to SCHOTT North America, I held communications roles at Coolbaker’s International and I also managed customer relations at CT Innovations. I’m an active member of the Emerald Circle, which supports the efforts of the green building and sustainable living industries. And I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Evansville. On the weekends you’ll find me outdoors, traveling, and attending music festivals and concerts.
