The Wood and Pellet Stove Change-out Program
Making the switch from a non-EPA certified wood or pellet stove to a cleaner-burning certified EPA stove is not only good for the environment, but also for your wallet. If you’re eligible, you may receive a standard rebate in southeastern Massachusetts between $500 to $1,500.
All Harman pellet stoves and inserts are EPA certified and are highly efficient. The changeout program is an initiative between MassCEC, MassDEP and the Department of Energy Resources (DOER).
Harman Fireplace Safety
A fireplace screen is an essential safety feature which prevents harmful burns and serves as a barrier between young children and pets and the heat source. If you have a Harman gas fireplace or insert manufactured before January 1, 2003, did you know you can receive a FREE safety screen? You simply need to fill out a form and pay the shipping.
Besides using a safety screen, here are a few other safety tips to prevent burns:
Free and clear. A cluttered hearth with nearby curtains, furniture and other household items is at risk of combustion. Keep the areas surrounding your Harman pellet stove or insert clear of clutter.
Be vigilant. Young children and pets are especially susceptible to fireplace accidents. If possible, create another physical barrier between the heat source to prevent anyone from getting too close. Even Harman wood or pellet stoves and inserts can remain hot to the touch long after they’ve been extinguished.
