Adding some ambiance to your home can be achieved in so many different ways. Through paint, furniture, lighting, and even through knick knacks you have displayed you can really add to the feel of the room. However, one of the best ways to add some charm and warmth to your home is with a freestanding stove. I have always enjoyed the look of freestanding stoves and they are a popular heating alternative.

There are a variety of different types of stoves to choose from such as wood-burners, pellet or coal fueled. The pellet stove is a popular heating alternative among people who wish to reduce their carbon footprint. The industry leader in home heating solutions is Harman, who happens to offer a wide variety of Harman Pellet Stoves. They are available in a variety of sizes and styles that can be easily added to most rooms.

In 1979 Dane Harman, in an effort to reduce his family’s heating bills, designed and built the first Harman Stove. News spread about the stove Harman had built, and orders began pouring in. More than three decades later, Harman now has 36 models of pellet stoves, inserts, and home heating units.

According to the infographic below, using a pellet stove to heat your home costs 44% less than oil, 47% less than electric, and 53% less than propane heat. Also, because biomass fuels are composed of renewable, carbon-neutral products, they are also an extremely eco-friendly option.

If you are considering a Harman Pellet Stove, you want to hear this great news! The federal tax credit on 75 percent efficient biomass heating appliances, which expired on Dec. 31, 2011, was reinstated on Jan. 2, 2013. The bill includes a "tax extender" for Internal Revenue Service Section 25C, which provides a tax credit for, among many other things, qualifying biomass-burning stoves! The extender provides a 10 percent tax credit of up to $300 on a qualifying biomass heating appliance purchased between Jan. 1, 2012 and Dec. 31, 2013!

A Harman Pellet Stove is a great way to save money on energy, help out ecologically, and add some charm to your home. This is also the perfect time of the year to do so with frigid temperatures that are sure to get worse before they get better.
