With the ever rising costs of fossil fuels, many are looking to more efficient, green, biomass heat. What does that mean? Biomass heat is heat fueled by renewable resources. Wood , wood pellets, and corn are examples of biomass fuel for heating your home. Biomass creates energy from the burning of bio fuels like excessive corn. Corn is a popular fuel source.
As we look for alternative ways to heat our home, biomass is becoming a popular choice with the use of multi fuel stoves. Corn is an excellent biomass power source because there is a large amount of energy in each kernel. When used to in a multi fuel stove, corn can produce as much heat as traditional pellet stove, but at a much lower cost.
Generally, using corn for heat will cost you half as much as oil, 30% less than coal and 70% less than natural gas. For more information on saving money on heating your home with a multi-fuel stove, contact St. Croix Stoves.
