Three clean fuel choices
"Our WoodMaster Flex Fuel furnaces also give consumers the option to choose the least expensive fuel in their area. These furnaces use cord wood, wood pellets or wood chips," says Chuck Gagner, president of Northwest Manufacturing, Inc., the parent company of WoodMaster. “Fuel flexibility and EPA-tested clean efficiency mean consumers save more money when heating their homes."

Phase I phasing out
EPA's Phase 1 models are no longer considered "qualified" under the Program after March 31, 2010. Use of permanent labels and hang tags for these models must be discontinued on units manufactured after that date.
