Wood stoves, a heating solution that provides numerous benefits, are increasingly popular and are enjoying a great deal of success. These efficient, practical heating systems allow their owners to achieve significant energy savings.
Wood stoves work by using France’s primary renewable energy source: wood biomass. Environmentally friendly and beautiful, this heating system increases your warmth and comfort.
There are two ways to use wood stoves, and each one fills a very specific need:
• Use of wood stoves by homeowners or renters as their main heat source.
• Use of wood stoves as a secondary heating system.
The power, efficiency, and of course the price of your stove will depend on which type of use you choose.
Whatever its characteristics or purchase price, wood stoves offer substantial energy savings, quickly paying for themselves. Especially since the cost can be offset by public assistance:
• The French CITE tax credit for energy transition (30% of the cost of the unit. Installation must be performed by a “Reconnue Garant de l’Environnement” [Recognized Environmentally Responsible] company, in compliance with specific qualifying criteria).
• White certificates
• Assistance from certain local authorities
Wood stoves with the label “flamme verte” are eligible for public assistance. As of January 1, 2012, the “flamme verte” label has rated stove energy performances using a star system. The most efficient wood heating units have a “flamme verte” score of 6 or 7 stars.
Invicta’s production, foundry and enameling sites are located in the Ardennes, between Sedan and Charleville Mézières.
