LETTER: EPA-compliant stoves cut emissions

Re: Smoking out wood burners (The NEWS, Dec. 14).

It’s important to note the cast iron, airtight stove that was seen as a great innovation was actually a major emitter of unburned gases, as it choked the air intake. Double combustion, EPA-compliant woodstoves that replace them burn much cleaner and more efficiently. This is not an endorsement, just a reminder to not throw the baby out with the bath water (over the fire, as it were).
