Residential Pellet Stove

Replace your current wood or pellet stove with a cleaner, more energy-efficient unit

High-efficiency, low-emission wood heating systems are a cleaner way to use wood for heat than traditional wood stoves and boilers. Because the stoves are more efficient, they burn less fuel and often save homeowners money.

Incentives and Financing

Two incentive options, determined by income, are available to homeowners:

  • $1,000 for the purchase of a new pellet stove with recycling of an existing wood, pellet stove, or insert (with firebox), in a primary residence
  • Households with income less than 80% of county median may qualify for an incentive of $1,000 for the purchase of a new pellet stove in a primary residence and an additional $500 if an existing wood, pellet stove, or insert (with firebox) is recycled

You may qualify for a low-interest loan to help pay for eligible project costs.

New Stove Requirements

Pellet stoves must have industry-leading particulate matter output of 2.0 grams per hour (PM 2.0 g/h) or less and be on the US EPA Certified Wood Heater list. Bulk pellets must also be stored outside the home due to potential off-gassing of carbon monoxide from pellets.
