Hey guys, I have made alot of friends on here so I figure its worth me discuss other things going on in my life, because I am sure there are a ton more folks here that have the same interests.
I am in the process of getting a fireplace insert installed in my "new" 1922 house I just bought this year, and going to supplement if not totally take over the heating of my house with firewood. The model I am getting is a Quadrafire 5100i.
5100I - Wood Model from Quadra-Fire
Its way over-rated for my house size, but it fits nicely in the size fireplace I have.
The biggest thing to pass along is some of that "Good Ole like its growing on trees Obama Reform $$"
Part of the Economic Reform Act there is a stipulation for a $1500 tax credit for Biomass furnaces, and energy efficient appliances and fixtures. So this fireplace insert falls into the Biomass furnace with a efficiency of better than 75%. What also qualifies for this tax credit is pellet stoves, solid fuel home furnaces and I think tankless water heaters. There are also things to look into like Windows and doors but you will have to find the bill and look that up what qualifies.
Quadrafire is having a Stihl Chainsaw promo till the end of Sep with the purchase of a QF stove/fireplace/insert a $200 gift certificate. So I plan on adding into my fleet of tools:
Chain Saws - STIHL MS 390 Chain Saw - Mid-Range Use - STIHL USA
I dont have much time this year to get good seasoned wood ready, but my father is helping me out since I am away for military training.
I grew up heating with wood, and its great for me to finally get my own house and be able to carry on the tradition. Anybody else into wood heating, and chainsaws?
Going to put this PSD to work hauling wood!!!
