If you’re like many homeowners, you might have heard about the Biomass Tax Credit, but have questions about the details: who is eligible; for what products; how you go about accessing and claiming these tax credits.
The folks at Harman have created a guide covering some common FAQs about the Biomass Credit, which we’re sharing here as a good starting point for learning about program as well as the energy and cost-efficiencies of these products.
When you’re ready to take the next step, get in touch with us and let our factory-trained staff help you choose your right product. Hearthside service includes a site visit for every installed product and includes our 2 year service warranty for all installed products. No surprises. All service. We are here for you.
Did you know it’s a great time to save money on your home heating with some of the tax credits and incentives available through the Biomass Tax Credit? This Tax Credit was approved as part of the Inflation Reduction Act, which qualifies certain highly-efficient biomass appliances for a tax credit until 2032.
So if you’re looking to add or replace a biomass stove, this tax credit is one more reason to transition to a more efficient and sustainable heating option. During the period beginning January 1, 2023 through December 31, 2032, taxpayers who install qualifying wood and pellet stoves can receive a 30% tax credit up to $2,000 annually, based on the full cost (purchase and installation) of the unit.
Eligible stoves must burn biomass as a fuel, heat air or water, and have a thermal efficiency of at least 75 percent per the higher heating value (HHV) of the fuel. Installations at primary or secondary residencies can be claimed, and both the purchase and installation costs (venting and related materials, onsite labor) can be included in your total cost.
Not surprisingly, products are in high demand, and availability is limited, so don’t delay if you’re considering a purchase in the near future. Connect with the team at Hearthside to find the right qualifying stove or insert from our broad lineup of pellet products - the perfect solution based on your needs, lifestyle, and priorities.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we’re here with one simple, delectable ways to heat up the V-Day grill for your favorite people. If an amazing ribeye or other thick cut is on the menu for Valentines, one of the tastiest and most ingenious methods for preparing a perfectly seared steak is the reverse sear technique.
Reverse sear is a two-step steak process best for thick steaks of 1.5 - 2” thick. It’s a great method for fattier cuts because it gives you perfect steak doneness and an outstanding crust without the flare-ups that can burn the meat.
After seasoning, you begin with a low, slow first cooking using indirect heat, followed by searing the meat over high heat to achieve a gorgeous crust.
Give it a try and see why grill pros everywhere swear by it as the way to achieve perfect steakhouse quality right at home. Here's a quick video how-to from the folks at Big Green Egg. Are you firing up (or give us a call if you want an Egg of your own;) the Big Green Egg for Valentine's Day? What's on your menu? youtu.be/C27EOLXukkE... See MoreSee Less
