Multi-Fuel Furnaces to Heat Your Home for Less

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 20, 2013

If you have already decided to look for a better, more efficient furnace for you home this winter, you may have already consider wood fueled furnaces. But, have you thought about multi-fuel furnaces? Multi fuel furnaces have a distinct advantage over single fuel models. With a multi fuel furnace you can burn whichever fuel is cheapest when you need it. They are a convenient and economical way of heating your home.

Multi-fuel furnaces can be fueled by wood pellets, cherry pits, distiller’s grain, wheat, rye, or corn. With multi-fuel furnaces you can keep you heating bills to their lowest possible levels. If heating with rye is the least expensive this upcoming winter, then that is what you can heat with. They can also be used to give you backup or supplemental heat.

Many homeowners prefer using multi-fuel furnaces to cut down on greenhouse gases. Using bio-mass fuels for heat lowers the output of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Since multi-fuel options are renewable resources they are safe for the environment while they conserve energy.

Given the price volatility for oil and gas a multi fuel furnace gives you a way to heat your home and combat those constantly fluctuating fossil fuel costs. And, if the cost to heat your home with pellets is less than heating with cherry pits, switching from one to the other is as simple as turning the fuel selector knob.

Pellet Furnaces are Economical and Responsible Heat

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 16, 2013

U.S. Senator Angus S. King introduced legislation that would recognize and promote the economic and environmental benefits of biomass thermal energy. TheBiomass Thermal Utilization Act of 2013, or BTU Act, would amend the federal tax code to incentivize biomass energy, as it already does for several other forms of renewable energy. Currently, a host of renewable energy technologies qualify for investment tax credits for capital costs incurred in residential and commercial installations. This legislation seeks to achieve parity between those renewable systems and thermal biomass systems.

“At a time when steep energy prices drain the pockets of families across America, thermal biomass systems, like wood pellet furnaces, offer a responsible and efficient way to generate clean energy, save money, and invest in our local economies,” said Senator King. “When people purchase wood pellets, they’re not only buying a home grown and home harvested product, but they’re also directly contributing to the creation of jobs and the economic health of our state. My legislation supports that effort by placing thermal biomass systems on a level playing field with other renewable energy technologies so that Mainers and Americans can better access a more affordable, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly source of energy.”

“From ensuring that federal housing and energy programs recognize wood pellet technology to helping ensure that biomass systems are included among the incentives for renewable energy, I strongly support efforts to promote biomass, which directly benefits Maine’s economy,” said Senator Collins.

“We welcome Senator King’s leadership in this ongoing battle to get Maine’s home-grown renewable fuel accorded the same tax incentives as virtually all other forms of renewable energy,” said William Bell, Executive Director of the Maine Pellet Fuels Association. “This is not just about heating homes. More than anything, it’s about jobs; the jobs that can be created by spending our fuel dollars here. We commend Senator King for making this one of his first legislative initiatives.”

“Senator King’s bill would provide highly efficient biomass thermal equipment like pellet furnaces the same incentive that exists for nearly every other renewable energy technology, including solar thermal and electric, wind, and geothermal,” said Joseph Seymour, Executive Director of the national non-profit Biomass Thermal Energy Council. “Thermal energy is typically the forgotten pathway in our national energy discussion, so the Senator should be commended for recognizing biomass thermal technologies as a base-load, local, and affordable option within our tax code.”

“We applaud Senator King for his leadership in introducing this critical piece of legislation,” said Jennifer Hedrick, Executive Director of the Pellet Fuels Institute. “Our current energy policy largely overlooks thermal energy produced from biomass. Simply stated – the BTU Act bill is good for job creation and the environment, and is a huge step forward in putting biomass thermal energy on a level playing field with competing renewable energy technologies.”

According to industry advocates, thermal biomass systems reduce heating bills by an average of 40% percent. With respect to wood pellet boilers, pellets cost roughly the equivalent of $1.70 to $2.00 per gallon of heating fuel. Additionally, nearly every cent of biomass heating investments is returned to the local economy whereas 80 percent of every heating oil dollar is sent out of the state. In New York State and New England, it has been estimated that for every 100,000 tons of pellets manufactured, 342 direct jobs are manufactured.

In Maine alone, several organizations and 36 schools operate on thermal biomass systems.

Wood Pellet Furnaces Save You Money on Heating

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 09, 2013

A project to install wood pellet furnaces in northern New Hampshire has reached out to an apartment complex in Berlin.

The Berlin Housing Authority’s Welch apartment complex expects to save $11,000 a year on heating fuel with the installation of the wood pellet furnaces.

The project is part of the Berlin Model Neighborhood Project, which is helping the region move away from dependence on imported oil toward a local energy source to help create jobs and strengthen the forest economy.

The Welch complex, which houses 55 elderly and disabled people, also plans to upgrade its hot water system, insulate crawlspaces, add water conservation features and program thermostats.

‘‘The Berlin Housing Authority is leading the way in energy efficiency and their investments are helping residents lower their energy consumption and costs,’’ said Sen. Jeanne Shaheen,.

The Neighborhood Project has funded installation of the boilers in 37 home. It plans to complete conversions in three more homes and renovate the Notre Dame School this fall.

Multi-fuel furnaces and wood pellet furnaces are a dependable and less expensive alternative to heating with fossil fuels. Available in two distinct models from St. Croix Stoves, these furnaces can supplement your current source of heat, while being cost-effective and reliable.  If you are interested in saving money on home heating this winter, you need information on wood pellet and multi-fuel furnaces from St. Croix Stoves, contact Us.

Switching to Pellet Furnaces Saves Money on Energy Bills

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 07, 2013

A project to install pellet furnaces in over 30 homes in New England, is saving money on residential heating bills. The homeowners participating are on track to save more than $50,000 a year on home heating now that they've replaced their oil burners with wood pellet furnaces.

St. Croix Stoves has created two different multi-fuel furnaces, the Revolution and the SCF-050, to help you save on your energy bills. Spring is the perfect time to make the switch. Both of our multi fuel furnaces are designed to burn pellets, corn, wheat, cherry pits, distiller’s grain pellets or rye. Using renewable fuels is an environmentally wise choice and can reduce traditional heating bills.

The “Revolution” multi fuel furnace virtually runs itself. It has a rotating ash and clinker removal system and is self-igniting as well as a revolutionary, patent-pending burn-pot and a dual hopper ignition system. Pellets are used for lighting the furnace; it then switches to the chosen fuel in the main hopper. The “Revolution” pot rotates every two hours without the unit ever shutting down.

The innovative features of the SCF-050 multi fuel furnace include: extended heat exchange surface, large clinker and ash pan, convenient fire viewing glass and direct thru-the-wall venting. The SCF-050 multi fuel furnace also includes a manually switchable two-speed room air blower. The digital control board can also be connected to an optional room thermostat. A unique clinker and ash removal system allows continuous furnace operation.

The “Revolution” multi-fuel furnace can be used for supplemental heat or as a stand-alone heater.  Our SCF-050 multi-fuel furnace supplies supplemental heat in conjunction with your present heating system or it can be used as a stand-alone heater.  

Keep more cash in your pocket and make an environmentally sound decision.  Choose one of our St. Croix multi fuel furnaces for your home.
