Energy-Efficient Wood Stoves by Morsø
Whether you're looking to replace a drafty fireplace or utilize zone heating during the cold winter, perhaps an energy-efficient stove from Morsø should be considered and researched for your application. The company offers several models -- small, large, traditional, or contemporary -- that are built in a low-impact manner with recycled materials.
Specifically, Morsø stoves are made in Denmark with 80% renewable energy using 98% recycled cast iron and 100% recycled content packaging.
The wood stoves start in price from about $1,000, though what you end up buying depends on where you install it and things like stove size, heating capacity, and design. Many stoves come with an efficiency rating of more than 75% and may qualify for a 30% federal tax credit.
Morsø also highlights another potential environmental attribute: carbon neutrality. If the wood is burned efficiently, "wood – unlike e.g. oil, coal or gas - can be reproduced by planting new trees to replace those cut down" and a "neutral CO2-cycle can therefore be maintained."
These units are being included in homes featured on this site more and more. In the past couple months, we've mentioned two homes with Morsø stoves -- Sustainable Cabin and Method Homes M2 -- and will probably write about more. They're beautiful.
