Reduce your carbon footprint with Harman Pellet Stoves Giveaway (ended)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Harman Stoves for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s really, really cold out in many parts of the country and with that cold comes rising heating costs. I cringed the other day when I opened my natural gas bill.

Then I went and turned the heat down.

Then I started looking into alternative heating options.

My husband has a wood burning stove in the garage and I have always wondered about getting something similar for inside. Something that looked good. Something that saved money. And as an added benefit, something that reduced my carbon footprint because I’m into saving the earth and “stuff.”

Enter Harman Pellet Stoves!

Pellet stoves are a popular heating alternative and are freestanding stoves that come in a number of different styles and designs. They are attractive, provide even heat, are easy to use and easy to take care of. They can improve the warmth and the ambiance of a room.

The pellets are made of biomass fuels consisting of recycled, renewable items including sawdust, paper waste, residual forest waste and agricultural bi-products. They are carbon-neutral and eco-friendly.

From an economy perspective, pellet stoves cost 47% less than electric heat, 53% less than propane and 44% less than oil when it comes to heating costs and the unit will pay for itself in 2-5 years. From an earth-friendly perspective a pellet stove reduces your carbon footprint by 9 tons annually – 3 times the impact of buying a hybrid car, and a pellet stove is much more affordable than a car.

Pellet Stoves are Awesome

Imagine your family enjoying the warmth and charm of a pellet stove with the peace of mind that you are having a positive impact on the environment. In addition to that, on Jan 2, 2013 a federal tax credit for biomass heating units was reinstated which provides a tax credit for qualifying biomass stoves purchased through Dec 31, 2013.

The Harman Company has been making stoves since 1979 when Dane Harman set out to reduce his family’s heating bills. They are now an industry leader with over 36 different products.
