The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a Burn Wise Program currently offering a tax credit of 30%, up to $1500, when people install efficient wood stoves and pellet stoves as sources of heating in their homes by the last day of 2010. The credit thus allows people to spend up to $5000 on any qualifying product. ChooseFireplacesandStoves.com, a ChooseDirect company, offers such efficient wood stoves and pellet stoves.
The EPA Burn Wise Program has instituted a Phase 2 efficiency rating program that forces qualifying efficient wood stoves and pellet stoves to burn at 75 percent efficiency or higher. When choosing a heating source of this sort, people should look for stoves that produce only 2 to 7 grams of smoke per hour. In addition, they should look for the EPA certification label on the back of the stove to be certain they are choosing one allowable under the program. The new efficient wood stoves and pellet stoves that meet the criteria create almost no smoke and minimal ash and use less firewood or biomass pellets.
The Burn Wise program does have its limitations. The stoves must be used in principal residences, not vacation homes or rentals, for example. They also must be installed by December 31, 2010. However, people can spend up to the $5000 on as many stoves as they can. This means they might be able to buy two or three stoves and earn a total of $1500 credit on their tax returns. The rebate includes installation costs as long as it is necessary for proper and safe operation.
One such efficient wood stove available at ChooseFireplacesandStoves.com is the Napoleon 1400 EPA Stove. This medium-sized efficient wood stove has emissions as low as 2.8 grams per hour and can heat up to 2000 sq. ft. A continuous clean burn is assured due to a single level burn control that regulates primary and secondary air, while a stainless steel-covered, ceramic insulated ensures complete combustion so you use less wood. It offers 55,000 BTUs on high burn and thus allows it to serve as a fine, efficient heating source. It also uses non-catalytic technology which means no catalytic combustor exists to break down and people won't need to clean the stove as often. This Napoleon Fireplaces efficient wood stove will thus not only keep people warm, but also allow them to claim the all-important tax credit.
