2010 April 6: VT Montpelier: WCAX.com of WCAX TV: Crackdown on outdoor wood furnace smoke

Montpelier, Vermont – April 5, 2010
With more people heating their homes using wood, many are turning to outdoor wood-fired furnaces. However those outdoor boilers are causing air pollution problems in some communities since the smoke drifts into nearby yards.
Three years ago Vermont adopted emission standards for wood boilers. In a new move last week, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine upped their standards for new furnaces. They’re up to 90 percent cleaner and use about half as much wood.
Nationally, the EPA regulates indoor wood stoves but not outdoor furnaces.
