Goffstown, NH. — (March 4, 2011) — is proud to announce that the Thomas family of Massachusetts has won the Win Free Green Heat Contest.

The prize, valued at $5,500, includes a Harman Accentra pellet stove and three tons of wood pellets, approximately a year’s supply. Nearly 7,000 people entered the national contest, which was conducted via websites, e-mail, Facebook and Twitter.

“I still can’t believe we won,” said Lauren Thomas. “Since we already had an older pellet stove, we replaced it with the new Harman. We are surprised at how much more efficient it is. With the old stove, we used to go through a bag and a half of pellets a day, but with the Harman we barely go through one bag and it heats an entire level of our house – about 1200 square feet.”

Today’s pellet stoves have high heating efficiencies and low emissions. They are easy to operate, burn cleaner than cord wood, gas or oil, have very low outside air particulate emissions, and help homeowners live greener by heating with renewable fuel.

Generally made from recycled wood byproducts, pellets are a cost stable, low-carbon fuel that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions when used as an alternative to fossil fuels such as heating oil, propane and natural gas.

The federal government is also rewarding consumers who make the switch to clean, green heat with a tax credit. Consumers who purchase and install a qualifying pellet burning appliance before December 31, 2011 can receive a tax credit of 10 percent of the cost of the product, up to $300.
