Woodstove Funding Resources

DEQ’s woodstove changeout programs provide rebates for homeowners to replace older, more polluting stoves with cleaner-burning EPA-certified woodstoves, inserts, pellet stoves, or natural gas or propane units. We sponsor woodstove changeout programs in specific areas throughout the state as funding becomes available.

We are currently offering five woodstove rebate programs. To receive a rebate, applicants must meet the general requirements listed below, as well as any additional requirements that apply for specific programs.

General Requirements

  • Applicants must be the legal owner of the home or rental property. Renters are allowed to participate if approved by their landlord. Review the Homeowner/Tenant Agreement before submitting an application.
  • Homes must be located within the specified area.
  • The existing appliance must be a non-EPA-certified wood-burning appliance or an EPA-certified wood or pellet appliance manufactured at least 20 years ago.
  • All newly purchased and installed wood-burning appliances must meet current EPA certification requirements.
  • All purchases, installation, and destruction of the old stove must be performed by a DEQ-participating vendor.
  • The DEQ-participating vendor must take the old woodstove or pellet stove to a DEQ-approved recycler for disposal and obtain a proof-of-disposal receipt. Homeowners must retain a copy of the proof-of-disposal receipt for tax purposes and submit a copy of the receipt to DEQ:

Idaho offers a tax deduction to replace non-EPA-certified woodstove with new EPA-certified wood or pellet stoves, or natural gas or propane heating units.

Taxpayers can deduct 40% of the actual cost paid for the purchase and professional installation in the year the woodstove is replaced. Taxpayers can also deduct 20% of the actual cost paid for the purchase and professional installation per year for the next 3 years. The total annual deduction cannot exceed $5,000. The deduction amount cannot include any amount rebated through a woodstove changeout program.

  • The existing appliance must be a non-EPA-certified woodstove. Retrofitting a fireplace is not eligible.
  • The purchase and installation must occur within the same calendar year.
