Save with High-Efficiency Wood and Pellet Heating Systems
Wood and pellet fuels are a renewable and cost-effective way to heat your home. High-efficiency wood and pellet heating systems are eligible for Home Energy Savings Program Incentives and Efficiency Maine Home Energy Loans.
$3,000 Incentive Available for Eligible Pellet Boilers and Furnaces
A pellet boiler burns pellets and is connected to a central heating and hot water system. Pellet boilers operate like conventional fuel central heating systems but require pellet storage space (hoppers are frequently located in the basement adjacent to the boiler). Many boilers include self-cleaning systems and require less cleaning than pellet stoves. Bulk pellet delivery is offered in many regions of the state. Learn more about incentive criteria.
$500 Incentive Available for Eligible High-Efficiency Wood and Pellet Stoves
A wood or pellet stove burns logs or pellets to heat a single room, although many homeowners locate these systems centrally and offset half or more of their primary fuel use. Pellet and wood stoves are typically fireplace inserts or free-standing models. Learn more about incentive criteria and eligible models.
Pellet stoves can be fed from the top or the bottom and some models have higher fuel storage capacity and are easier to clean. Advances in stove design have dramatically increased output efficiency and convenience, while reducing particulate emissions. Learn more about wood and pellet stoves.
