An Overlooked Source for Heating Your Home and Saving Money.
You may be loyal to wood heat because it's a cost-effective way to heat your home; or a furnace may be your main source of heat, even though heating costs take a big bite out of your monthly budget for a large part of the year. And, with the rapidly escalating costs of heating your home with gas, oil, propane and kerosene, you may be paying twice as much as you did a few years ago.
Another option to heating your home and cutting heat costs up to 76 percent over traditional fuels is with The WoodMaster PLUS by Northwest Manufacturing Inc. This innovative alternative fuel furnace efficiently burns corn, wood and paper pellets, barley, beet pulp, sunflowers, dried cherry pits, soy beans and a variety of other alternative fuels. It connects easily into your existing heating system, making a transition to the outdoor furnace simple.
Think again this Fall when your corn harvest is ready to be fed to the farm animals. You can now heat a 2,000 square-foot home with The WoodMaster PLUS fueled with corn for $500 per year as compared to natural gas, which would cost more than $1,100 annually. Electricity is even higher at $2,103 annually.
No, the corn doesn't snap, crackle or pop. Corn contains oil and ethanol, which burns cleaner than other fuels, and more cheaply, too. Once you learn how valuable this reasonably priced source of fuel is, you will start to wonder what other crops you have in your backyard that will work to heat your home.
Did you ever think you could use sunflowers at the end of the harvest season to stay warm? The beautiful golden rows of sunflowers that are usually left to be covered with ice and snow can now be used as an alternative fuel source. Even sunflowers taken over by sclerotinia, a disease that damages sunflowers causing them to droop, turn a dark color and die prematurely, can also be used in the furnace.
If you harvest cherries, you now have the opportunity to use cherry pits in the The WoodMaster PLUS furnace. The small center of a cherry can bring warmth to your home.
More and more people are seeking alternative ways to heat their homes because they are fed up with high fuel bills and want to save money. Today's WoodMaster PLUS alternative fuel furnace is far more efficient, burns cleaner than older models, is easier to operate and safer than indoor stoves. Plus, it is better-looking then the old black cast-iron stoves - in fact, The WoodMaster PLUS is downright attractive.
The decision to switch to this innovative source of heat may be as easy as taking a look at what crops you currently grow. There are alternative ways to heating your home and saving money - they're probably right in your backyard.
