It is not that often we blow our own horn on this blog, but this announcement is kind of big deal, so we are going to break from tradition. Last week we announced that the Greenwood Clean Energy’s Frontier CX wood boiler is the first and only log wood boiler certified for sale in Washington State.
So, why is this a big deal?
Well, up to this point in time, you couldn’t legally buy a wood boiler in the State of Washington due to very strict air quality regulations. In fact in the hydronic heater category, Washington State regulations are 75% stricter than the EPA standard (4.5gm/hr vs 18 gm/hr). The state also requires the use Douglas Fir as the test fuel source, since that is the predominant fuel in the region, although homeowners can use any variety of a locally available seasoned log wood.
So what does this mean to you?
If you are Washington State resident, you now have a way to heat your home and water using a locally available and renewable fuel source – wood. If you live outside Washington, you can rest assured that you are purchasing one of the cleanest and most efficient wood-fired central heating appliances on the market today.
