Q: Can more than one wood stove change out in the same home get an incentive through this program?
A: No, only one stove per address can receive an incentive through this program
Q: Can a customer replace a cordwood furnace or other old wood heater through this program?
A: Yes, any wood burning heating “appliance” stove/boiler/furnace can be changed-out, if it is 1) in use and 2) not on the list of historically certified EPA wood heating appliances.
Q: I thought that X stove met the requirements – why isn’t it on the Qualifying Products List?
A: To be on the RERC Qualifying Products List, a stove must meet all 3 of these criteria:
Check the EPA’s list (click here) to ensure that the particulate emissions rating and Actual Measured Efficiency are present and within the specified limits. Also check to see if the stove may be listed under a parent brand/company name. Please report any errors or emissions on the RERC list to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Does the new stove need to be installed in the same exact location as the old stove?
A: No. However, the new stove should still be heating the same space/structure that the old stove did. If the location is moved, please make a note for that project when submitting the incentive request. This will help RERC staff understand why the backgrounds in the old stove and new stove photos won't match up.
Q: Can I replace an old cord wood stove with a new pellet stove (or vice versa) and get the incentive?
A: Yes, you can absolutely change out one type for the other! The incentive is based on the new stove that you are installing - so if you replace an old cord wood stove with a new pellet stove, you'll get a $1000 incentive. If you replace an old pellet stove with a new cord wood stove, you'll get an $800 incentive.
Q: What if the old stove does not have a make and model # on the back because it is very old or homemade?
A: No problem - write "No visible model #" on the incentive request.
Q: Are fireplace inserts eligible?
A: Yes, there are a few fireplace insert products on the Qualifying Products List. However, the new insert must be replacing an existing, non-EPA certified insert or stove. We cannot offer incentives to inserts that are "replacing" an empty fireplace. .
