Wood Stove Exchange Program
Wood Stove Exchange
Older and uncertified wood stoves and inserts are inefficient, dirty and pollute the air inside your home and around your neighborhood. If you use one of these old stoves to stay warm in the winter, we can help you replace it with a new heating system for little or no cost.
Washington County is now offering rebates of $1,500-$3,500* when you replace your old wood stove or insert with one of the following:
*Some households will qualify for a FREE replacement, based on income.
·Electric heat pump or ductless heat pump
·Gas stove or insert
·EPA-certified Pellet stove or insert
·EPA-certified wood stove or insert (Only available to households who are eligible for a full cost replacement grant)
How the program works:
1.Complete an application.
The application is designed to pre-qualify you for the exchange program and determine if you qualify for a rebate or free replacement. Follow the submission instructions on the application. Call 503-846-4425 if you have questions.
2.Get inspected and approved.
Program staff will visit your home to verify the age and eligibility of your current wood stove and discuss replacement options with you. Once approved, you will receive a letter confirming the amount of your rebate, or your eligibility for a free replacement.
3.Choose your vendor.
Once you receive a rebate approval letter listing program vendors, you can start shopping with those approved vendors. Rebate participants are encouraged to get multiple bids from the approved program vendors. Heating devices, services and warranties may vary between these vendors. For households receiving a free replacement, staff will work directly with you and an approved vendor or installer to prepare for the project.
4.Washington County pays vendor.
Once your project is finished and permitted, program staff will pay your vendor the amount of your rebate. Any additional balance due is paid by the resident.
