"wodtke is committed to hybrid heating systems. As a pellet pioneer and one of the leading manufacturers of innovative pellet and wood-burning stoves, we offer forward-looking solutions for heating and comfortable warmth in the home.

Heat and the heating of the future require the interaction of different energies for sustainable heat supply systems. In this hybrid heating system, both heat generators complement each other perfectly. Without wood heat, the climate targets cannot be achieved. Heating with wood and wood pellets makes economic and ecological sense.

We are looking forward to the next WORLD OF FIREPLACES 2025."
