Residents living in Joe Rich can learn the secrets behind clean, efficient, smokeless wood heating.

If you have a wood burning appliance find out how to burn safer, cleaner and more efficiently at a free Wood Heating Workshop. 

It starts at 6:00 pm, Wednesday, April 20 in the Joe Rich Community Hall, 11481 Highway 33 East.

Get your questions answered and learn about proper wood heating and burning techniques, purchasing and preparing your wood, tips on loading the firebox and chimney care, what EPA and Emission ratings mean and how to plan an effective wood heating system. 

We’ll also have information available about how residents can save money and utilize rebates by updating their wood burning appliance through the Wood Stove Exchange program.

The first 20 people who pre-register by April 13th will receive a free wood moisture meter.
