Pellet Stoves eligible for federal credits

Contractors and homeowners alike have a reason to warm up to pellet and other biomass-burning fireplaces and stoves. Homeowners may qualify for a federal tax credit of up to $1,500 if they purchase and install a 75-percent efficient wood- or pellet-burning (biomass) stove in 2009 or 2010. Thirty percent of the total cost, including the appliance, installation and piping, can be claimed.

According to the HPBA, pellets burn cleaner than virtually any other biomass fuel and produce low particulate matter. They are made from compacted sawdust, wood chips, bark, agricultural crop waste and other organic materials. Combustion is achieved through an electrically controlled, high-temperature burner with ample oxygen and sufficient burning of gases before they are exhausted.
