Outdoor wood boiler smoke - VT

OWBs tend to cause dense smoke that impacts neighbors who complain about nuisance and health problems. Most OWBs come equipped with very short stacks. The smoke from these low stacks disperses poorly.

In addition, the owners often operate the OWBs to heat hot water or swimming pools during the summer when neighbors have their windows open and are trying to enjoy the outdoors.
