This book covers everything you need to know about wood heating, from planning a system, choosing, sizing, installing & making a stove, obtaining & storing firewood, and cooking with wood, to heating your water with a back boiler. It includes chainsaw use, basic forestry, health & safety, chimneys, pellet and woodchip stoves, and how to light a fire and keep it going. This edition has been expanded to reflect improvements in appliances, developments in the type and availability of wood-based fuels and the author’s own recent experience of installing and using an automated biomass system. 166 pages, £11.95.
