How much wood could a woodchuck chuck? 

Good question.

Wood has been warming Canadians since before there was even a Canada. It has been the choice for Many in rural areas and in some cases, it is the only option. Wood is a bargain compared to conventional fuels, especially if you can grow and cut it yourself.


Wood burning technology has increased in efficiency over the years and might be the right option for you. Deciding on wood as your fuel, will involve a more manual mindset/lifestyle and active participation in comfort of your home. If you like the idea of an open fire and carrying armfuls of wood this could very well be the best option for you.


Installed in the main living area, especially in an open-concept floor plan with few interior walls, a modern wood-burning stove can provide almost all the heat you’ll need. And if you live in an older or larger home already equipped with an oil, gas or electric furnace or boiler, a new fireplace insert or wood stove can help you save substantially on your overall fuel costs.

Environmental considerations

If you have a supply of firewood on your property, and employ sustainable planting techniques, it can be argued that wood is the most environmentally friendly option. 


Lifestyle considerations

Unlike most options, you will need to manually manage your fuel supply (wood) on an ongoing basis. Wood pellet options will require much less work than managing and burning logs. If you are looking to be self sufficient and enjoy a lifestyle with manual labour, heating your home with wood is one way to meet these goals.


In a nutshell

  • You will have to manually manage your wood supply

  • You may incur increased insurance premiums
