4 GOOD REASONS for BURNING WOOD

  1. HEAT

Stay warm the old-fashioned way.

We sometimes forget how dependent we are on electricity, oil and gas. Wood burning means, to a greater or lesser extent, energy independence which can then translate into lower heating bills. Power outages and high-priced fossil fuels are less a worry when you have access to a renewable energy resource like wood. Wood burning can be an intelligent and environmentally sound heating option for your home, whether it is used as a primary or supplemental source of heat. There’s nothing like shaking off the chill from the outdoors by instantly warming your body next to a woodstove or fireplace.

 

  1. COOKING DELICIOUS FOODS

No gas or electricity needed for these tasty meals.

Food prepared using a wood fire can be a delicious upgrade to any recipe especially when using flavorful hardwoods such as Apple, Hickory or Cherry. Whether you are deep into the wilderness or in your own backyard, cooking and eating a meal outside is an excellent way to enjoy your favorite foods all while relaxing in the midst of the great outdoors. Make sure to stay in touch with Wood Burner Pro for mouthwatering recipes cooked by campfire or on the top of your woodstove.

 

  1. EXERCISE

No gym membership required!

Whether purchasing firewood or cutting your own, there will always be some type of labor required…this is not work, but exercise! When we harvest a tree to prepare it for burning we work our bodies, repeatedly lifting the tree in all its stages from the smaller pieces like the limbs and branches used for kindling to the trunk where the wood gets quite a bit heavier – then cutting, splitting and carrying until we finally light the match. Collecting wood and feeding a fire is a fun, outdoor activity where family and friends can participate – all while getting fresh air and exercise. Personally, I have never experienced a more diverse and productive workout than the one I received while heating my home with wood.

 

  1. DE-STRESS – RELAX – ENJOY!

There is something hypnotic and comforting about those erratic, dancing flames of fire. Wood burners will often discover how each fire, whether indoors or out, can be soothing therapy for their souls. Toast marshmallows with the kids or kick back with friends and family enjoying drinks and story-telling. There is always a comforting presence and a mindful calmness one obtains when unwinding by those brilliant glowing flames.

 

Enjoy a fire,
