Does a 30% Tax Credit Make a Difference to You?
Whether or not you're a fan of football (or Nascar's Chase, or baseball playoffs, or just going to fall festivals), it's a sure sign that fall is here and winter - and our heating season - is close at hand.
If you have a wood stove, you may want to brush up on your kindling chopping tips by checking out this article
It covers basic tips, but if you're new to heating with wood, it's true that good kindling is essential to keeping your frustration levels at a minimum.
By the way, we posted a link to that article on our Facebook and our Twitter account earlier this week. If you have a Facebook account or you "tweet," please click the links in the right hand column and follow us; we'd love to have you!
And remember - as always - while you're getting your stove ready for the fall, feel free to contact us
if you have any questions or need help with your stove.
If you'd rather call than email, our toll-free number is (800) 245-6489.
Our "Early Bird" Sale is going away!
In our last newsletter, we mentioned that our EARLY BIRD KIT Sale is going on right now, for a limited time.
An Early Bird Kit is a great way to get your stove ready for the upcoming heating season. You can purchase a kit that contains the most commonly replaced gaskets for your stove, or you can purchase an 'Overhaul Kit' that contains gaskets, blowers and an auger motor (for pellet stoves) or gaskets and replacement fiber board (for wood stoves).
BUT - Unfortunately - all good things must come to an end (why is that, exactly?) and our sale will be ending on or about October 1st...
So if you are thinking about getting in on the savings (and Free Shipping) for the Early Bird Kit for your Wood or Pellet stove, please act now.
and save big!
Free Firefox Personas
If you use Mozilla Firefox as your internet browser, you may know that they have "Personas" available. Personas are themes that you can use to dress up your browser window...anything from music to fashion to film or television is used as a Persona subject.
And now, we have a Persona that you can use! It's free, of course, but if you want to check it out click this link and then the 'Wear this Persona' button: http://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/persona/294634
And check back in on the Personas Gallery at Firefox periodically, as we'll create more of these as we go along. Just do a search on 'heatredefined' and we will try to keep the free Personas coming.
Does the 30% Tax Credit Matter to You?
You may have noticed the "Tax Credit" button that is on the right-hand column of this newsletter, and on the home page of our web site.
It describes the 30% Consumer Tax Credit (up to $1,500) that the IRS is allowing until December 31 "for the purchase and installation of a 75-percent efficient biomass-burning stove."
More information on the credit can be found here:
Nearly all of our stoves qualify for this tax credit, but we are wondering (and posted this question recently on our Facebook page):
"Does the 30% tax credit have you thinking about purchasing a wood or pellet stove or any other approved energy product? Or is the economy so slow that the tax credit won't make a difference to you?"
