Pellet heating appliances for reduced winter utility bills – 

Hearth and Home TechnologiesCorrespondent Kim Knight visits Courtland Hearth & Hardware in Fallston, Maryland with owner Richard Thomas and Jeni Forman, Vice President of Dealer Marketing for Quadra-Fire and Harman, to see new concepts in pellet fireplaces, stoves and inserts; concepts that fit a green, energy efficient lifestyle. From there, Jeni takes Kim to two homes, to see how an existing fireplace is converted to a heating power house, and to witness the installation of a new pellet heating appliance in another home.

Save Money– While Helping Save the Planet!

Hearth and Home Technologies offer new concepts in pellet fireplaces, stoves and inserts– that fit a green, energy efficient lifestyle.

Helping to keep up with an ever ‘green’ changing world, Hearth and Home Technologies offer new concepts in pellet fireplaces, stoves and inserts that fit a green, energy efficient lifestyle. Hearth & Home Technologies is the leading manufacturer of pellet home heating appliances including everything from stove, fireplace inserts, and fireplaces to central heating.

Pellet stoves, fireplaces and inserts are similar in appearance to wood-burning appliances, but they burn pellets made of compacted sawdust, wood chips, and other organic materials. They provide heat by burning materials that may otherwise go to a landfill.

Pellet appliances, like Hearth and Home’s Quadra-Fire EDGE 60 fireplace, can help control your heating costs.

The Benefits of Using Pellet Appliances:

• Using pellet appliances to heat your home will not only save you money but also helps save the planet.
• Available for 2010 there is a federal tax credit on pellet appliances that exceed 75-percent efficiency. This tax credit is for 30% of the purchase price to a maximum credit of $1,500. This tax credit expires 12/31/2010.
• Pellet prices are much more predictable than heating oil, propane and other fossil fuels.
• Pellet stoves, fireplaces and fireplace inserts burn clean with very low outside air particulate emissions, producing far less greenhouse gases.

When compared to wood-burning fireplaces, pellet inserts are more convenient to operate and have higher heating efficiencies. They burn cleaner than wood stoves, still utilizing renewable energy that’s produced right here in the U.S.

By using this kind of stove technology and pellet fuel for home heating, you’re not only saving money– but also helping to save the planet.
