Jøtul North America and Krings Hearth and Home team up to support clean air efforts with wood stove changeout program

This summer, Jotul North America (Jøtul NA) is partnering with dealers nationwide to implement the Woodstove Changeout Program. Krings Hearth and Home is proud to announce that it will be part of this effort for cleaner air across the country.

From June through September 16, 2013, consumers can bring in their current non-EPA-certified stoves to select dealers nationwide, including Krings Hearth and Home, in exchange for a voucher valued at up to $300 toward any current Jøtul product. For all vouchers that are redeemed at Krings Hearth and Home Jøtul will make a donation to the American Lung Association.

Old stoves can be dropped off at Krings Hearth and Home. Non-EPA stoves that are exchanged during the changeout will be rendered unusable and recycled.

Inspired by federally led changeout programs around the U.S., Jøtul NA is the first manufacturer to implement its own changeout program, encouraging wood stove owners to become more environmentally friendly.

Because EPA-certified wood stoves emit approximately 70 percent less pollution than older conventional stoves, owners who make the change from a non-EPA stove can directly affect local air quality. In addition to being environmentally friendly, EPA-certified stoves can be 50 percent more efficient and burn up to 1/3 less wood than older models.
