Benefits of Becoming a Wood Heat Installer

The past twenty years have brought sweeping changes to the energy sector. Households across the nation are steadily transitioning away from fossil fuel heating sources.

Urban areas in Maine and Vermont have seen a 98% and greater increase in wood heat as a primary or secondary heat source.
