Críticas:

Nothing beats a warm fire on a cold night. How about heating your entire home with a wood-burning heater? Jones, an experienced editor and author of Fireplaces, extols the virtues of a wood-burning fire in this well-written book. The author leads the reader through practical matters, such as what tree species make the best firewood, the types of heaters and what they do, and installation and maintenance of heating appliances and chimneys. A primer on the properties of fire is an interesting addition. Special sections are peppered throughout, including how to deal with creosote, a by-product of wood burning, and how a cord of wood is measured. Finally, a list of manufacturers from the United States and Canada are given, with useful evaluations of different wood-heating appliances. VERDICT The author does point out the limitations of this energy source--wood burning for heat is not for everyone. Newer wood heat appliances have become more efficient, so this up-to-date information is important for those considering this method. Jones's highly informative, specialized book is recommended for libraries in Canada and the northern United States.-- (11/01/2014) Want to heat your rural home without gas or coal?

Overall, it's an excellent overview of the ins and outs, and various techniques behind burning wood for heat, offering the novice a treasure trove of tools and tips on how to burn it right.-- (09/21/2014) Whether you use wood as a major source of heat or as a supplement to other heating systems you should know about the do's and don'ts of heating with wood and Wood Heat: A Practical Guide to Heating Your Home with Wood offers considerable information.

Reseña del editor:

Wood Heat is a comprehensive and practical homeowner's guide to using wood as a reliable source of heat with the latest wood stoves and traditional !replaces. The book explores the efficiency of wood compared to other fuels, the environmental impacts of various fuel types as well as sustainability issues that have led to so many adopting a wood-burning lifestyle. Heating with wood does more than keep a house warm. Though it can be a hands-on expression of self-reliance, it does bring us closer to the land by using fuel that is renewable and sustainably harvested, and renews our wonder in the cycle of the seasons. And the biggest benefit is that wood heat saves money in the long run. There are four ways that wood can be used to heat a home or cottage: wood stoves (the most popular), fireplace inserts, pellet stoves and masonry heaters. Wood Heat explains the pros and cons of each. The book provides all of the information and advice needed to convert to a wood-heated life. How-to topics include step by step directions. They include: The comparative advantages of heating with wood; Buying, cutting, splitting, stacking, storing and moving firewood; Building the perfect woodpile; Varieties of wood and their burning characteristics; The latest technology for burning wood efficiently and cleanly; Energy content of wood varieties per air-dried cord (BTUs); Catalytic and non-catalytic stoves; Cooking with a wood stove; How to make a good fire; Essential hearth and fireplace tools; Sizing wood-burning appliances; A chimney maintenance checklist. Currently, an increasing number of British and Irish households use wood as their main heating fuel or to supplement other forms of heating. Unstable, increasing fuel costs and the desire of many people to move toward self-sufficiency will only increase the numbers of those choosing to burn wood for heat. Wood Heat is the ideal guide for all.
