Transforming Wood Heat in America

Appliance Types and Policy Goals

Residential biomass heating appliances come in many different variations. Each technology presents unique issues and benefits, and not all technologies are suited for every geographic area or incentive program. Some wood burning appliance classes are better suited for the needs of low-income households, some are designed to burn very cleanly and eliminate user error so to be well suited for areas with air quality issues, while others are better able to optimally displace fossil fuels by heating the whole home.
