Here at 802 Energy Services, we believe in the power of renewable heating and making a difference. Each home where we install a pellet heating system reduces its carbon footprint by 86% and many states offer significant incentives for switching from fossil fuels to wood pellets - which, according to the US EPA are carbon-neutral fuel.
We love working with homeowners to replace older, less efficient heating systems. And, we focus only on the top pellet heating systems from Maine Energy Systems (MESys), so we can also get parts locally and quickly when needed.
We do pellet heating system installations, along with the installation of bulk wood pellet storage, and service the systems throughout their lifetime. If you're interested in pellet heating, we would be happy to talk to you. 802 Energy Services covers the states of Vermont and New Hampshire.
We are also fully licensed and insured to install oil heating systems. We can install or service your back up, or primary, oil heating system- hydronic or forced air.
Frequently asked questions
Frequently Asked Questions about Pellet Heating
Do you recommend a backup heating system in place?
It's always a good idea to have backups, but with a 30-year warranty and service nearby you aren't likely to need it. We see many people keep alternative heating systems, but also a lot who make the switch completely.
How do I begin the process of switching to pellet heating?
The first step would be to connect with us or the manufacturer, Maine Energy Systems (MESys) which is based in Bethel, Maine. We can guide you if you are local to our area (VT & NH), or if you are several states away MESys can connect you with an installer in your region.
How much maintenance is involved with whole home pellet heating systems?
The MESys systems that we install are auto-cleaning. As with any heating system, you'll want to do an annual cleaning in the summer. You will also need to empty the ash bin about four times a year, which is a very clean and easy process.
How does bulk wood pellet delivery work?
Wood pellet deliveries come via a fuel truck very similar to oil or propane. We install outside fill points every time so that the driver can fill your pellet hopper whether you're home or not. The process is seamless, hands-off, and the average home only takes about three deliveries every year.
What incentives are available for switching to pellet heating?
We do installations in Vermont and New Hampshire, so we tend to focus on those two rebate processes and are very familiar with each one. Vermont's rebate is currently at $6,000 and more info can be learned from Efficiency Vermont and the Vermont Renewable Energy Resource Center. New Hampshire's current rebate covers 40% of installation costs up to $10,000 and is ran by the NH Public Utilities Commission. States have specific guidelines for storage and other details, but we will absolutely help guide you through the process.
