Energy Conservation Committee Shares EPA ‘Burn Wise’ Tips


During this home-heating season, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reminds us to reduce smoke pollution. In doing so besides keeping warm we help protect our homes, health and the air we breathe. Use seasoned, dry wood; it’s better for the air and for your pocketbook. Darker, untreated wood is more efficient to burn. Clean chimneys (nearly three-fourths go unchecked) increase home safety and emit less corrosive smoke. For more information, visit the EPA’s Burn Wise Web site . The remaining green/energy-saving tips for the semester will be brought to you via the Penn College community’s Energy Conservation Committee.
