Because that way I leave the mess in the woods instead of my yard. I agree if you have acreage, that is the way to go.

EPA Air Quality

It seemed that when living here 20 plus years ago the EPA had issues with wood stoves. Has that issue gone away?

For me, it is a win/win. I just dump the load where I park that Valdez, I mean truck, and the heap of sawdust soaks up the drips. Every other year or so I'll scoop up what I can and throw it in the brush pile to burn.

There are still the burn bans they put into effect when the air quality becomes poor due to a stagnant air, when you are only supposed to burn wood if it is the only way to heat your house. But it is funny how the air quality maps always show the ban ending at the WA/ID border. Ain't no greenies gonna tell us when we can and can't burn!

The newer "approved" stoves also have what is basically a catalytic converter in the flu to help clean the air by re-burning the exhaust gasses, and it also puts off extra heat so less wood is needed to obtain the same output as a traditional stove.

That TempCast looks like quite a stove. Can they be retrofitted to existing fireplaces, or does most of the existing masonry have to be torn out and rebuilt?

It's an amazing unit for sure. Very heavy, we poured a 36" thick footing to support it and the floor still cracked. Don't think you can retro fit because of that though. Supremely efficient, only smokes a tiny bit when you light it and about a shoe box of ash comes out twice a year.
