Wood versus Fossil Fuels
Burning a high quality firewood in an efficient wood stove is an excellent way to cut your winter heating costs. Quality Oak firewood from Broken Branch Farms has a very high heat output with 1 cord of wood containing approximately 21 million to 24 million BTU’s of energy. To get that same heat you would need approximately 200-250 gallons of heating oil or 250-300 cubit feet of natural gas!
