This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Harman Stoves. All opinions are 100% mine.
When I was about 9 years old, my family and I moved from our house in Cherry Valley, Illinois all the way to a beautiful ranch style house in Louisville, Kentucky. That house was beyond gorgeous with a huge, spacious kitchen, a big, finished basement and a full porch overlooking our 1 1/2 acres of land which included woods and a creek.
What it did not have however, which was pretty important for a 8 and 9 year old, was any sort of chimney or stove. I mean how in the world was Santa going to get into the house to leave our presents!?
If we had known about Harman Pellet Stoves and their other pretty neat products for the home, we might have been able to skip my sister and I's mini Santa-won't-be-able-to-bring-us-our-presents meltdown.
Anyway, a little more about the company of Harman and their products:
"Although Harman is now the industry leader in home heating solutions, their beginnings were humble: Dane Harman designed and built the first Harman Stove in 1979, in an effort to reduce his family’s heating bills. As word of his stove’s efficacy spread, the orders from neighboring households came pouring in, and the legendary Harman brand was born. More than three decades later, the Harman logo adorns 36 models of pellet stoves, inserts, and home heating units, and the name has become synonymous with excellence and efficiency."
From their humble beginnings, Harman has expanded and made quite a name for themselves! Just take a gander at this infographic.....
Aside from their sleek and attractive designs, Harman Pellet Stoves are environmentally friendly! As shown in the above infographic, to heat your home costs 44% less than oil, 47% less than electric, and 53% less than propane heat with this popular heating alternative. Also, because biomass fuels are composed of renewable, carbon-neutral products, they are also an extremely eco-friendly option. I can honestly say I've never really done much research into biomass energy and fuels, but anything that helps save the Earth is A.O.K. in my book!
But wait, there's more! The federal tax credit on 75 percent efficient biomass heating appliances, which expired on Dec. 31, 2011, was reinstated on Jan. 2, 2013. The extender provides a 10 percent tax credit of up to $300 on a qualifying biomass heating appliance purchased between Jan. 1, 2012 and De. 31, 2013!
