2. EcoSmart Fires Qualify for Federal Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency Through 2010
On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed into law a stimulus bill (The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) that made significant changes to the Tax Credits available for purchase of Nonbusiness Energy Property. These amendments to the Internal Revenue Code have qualified consumers purchasing any EcoSmart Fire product for a tax credit of 30% of their purchase price up to $1,500. Please click here to learn more about this offer and qualification requirements.
EcoSmart Fire has introduced the Synergy Series – four new outdoor designer fire ranges. They are the same dimensions of four of the most popular indoor ranges, but the Synergy Series fireplaces have been made with heavy-gauge steel surrounds, an extremely durable, weather resistant material.
In February 2009, President Obama announced there would be a tax credit available for the purchase of energy efficient fixtures for all non-business properties. Under this “Recovery and Reinvestment Act” the purchase of an EcoSmart fireplace qualifies buyers for a 30% tax credit (up to $1,500). The innovative and unique ranges also fulfills the cutting edge design enthusiast in all of us.
The EcoSmart ranges are flueless units that burn on clean, natural denatured ethanol (alcohol). The fireplace below happens to be freestanding.
