With the persistent rise in energy bills, the pellet stove is becoming an increasingly attractive choice for many Italian families. However, the initial cost of purchasing and installing a pellet stove can be a significant obstacle for many. But there is good news: in 2023, it is possible to take advantage of various state bonuses and incentives to make the purchase of a pellet stove more accessible while also contributing to environmental sustainability.
Bonuses available in 2023
Fortunately, in 2023, there are several opportunities for state bonuses and incentives that can help mitigate the costs associated with the purchase and installation of a biomass stove.
The Ordinary Eco-Bonus is a tax incentive that allows for a 50% discount if energy system retrofitting is carried out or a 65% discount if these interventions involve the entire building. To benefit from the deduction on your income tax return, the pellet stove or fireplace must ensure an energy efficiency of over 85% and have an environmental certification of 4 or 5 stars, depending on whether it is a replacement or a new installation.
The renovation bonus is another tool that can be used to cover part of the costs associated with the installation of a pellet stove. This bonus is intended for building renovation projects that include energy efficiency improvements.
The GSE (Energy Services Manager) offers incentives for energy production from renewable sources, including pellet stoves. This incentive can help reduce the stove’s operating costs over time.
The 110% Superbonus is an exceptional incentive that covers 110% of the costs incurred for energy efficiency work. If you are considering a more extensive renovation of your home, this bonus could also cover the installation of a pellet heater.
Pellet Fireplace Bonus: Requirements and Opportunities
To apply for the pellet stove bonus, you need to submit an application through the ENEA (National Agency for New Technologies, Energy, and Sustainable Economic Development) online portal. During the application process, you will need to provide the beneficiary’s personal information and property details. Subsequently, you must specify the chosen type of facilitation and attach the data related to energy retrofitting or information on energy savings achieved. The request must be submitted within 90 days from the completion of the work.
