Payback of a new Kuuma Vapor-Fire 100 Gasification Wood Furnace timeframe could be less than one burning season for many owners.
For example, a new Kuuma Vapor-Fire furnace sells for a $7,895 fob factory. Then you will qualify for a 26% federal tax credit. This is $2,052. So your current net furnace cost will be $5843.
Fuel projections for the fall of 2022, as reported by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (March 28th, 2022), are as follows:
Residential heating oil $5.127/ gallon
Residential propane $2.98/ gallon.
So if you go through 1500 gallons of propane or heating oil in a year to heat your home, the projected cost for these commodities this fall is
heating oil 1500 gallons x $5.13 = $7,695
propane 1500 gallons x $2.98 = $4,470
So in less than one year for oil and slightly more than one year for propane, your new Wood-furnace would pay for itself – assuming you have a supply of firewood.
And the cost for your wood furnace for the next 40 years of $0!
On top of all this, it’s easy and fun to use, but don’t just take our word for it…
Love mine it was built in the late 80 and still works great and customer service is awesome
I love my Kuuma we use 2/3 less wood, long burn, no longer getting up in the middle of the night. Our propane distributor has complained because we use so little propane. Even though I would have loved the 25% credit, these two warm carefree years are worth it! PS Best customer service too!
I’ve had my Vapor-Fire 100 for 5+ years. It’s a great unit & the people at Kuuma were very helpful when I had questions.
Everything about these furnace are true. Loaded up this morning just got home house 72*. Can’t say enough about theses furnaces they are just amazing. Keep up the good work
I have a model 100 made in 87 still going strong 40 below this morning still keeping the house warm
We have had our furnace for 6 or 7 years, LOVE it, we are heating a large home in TN with it, using about half the wood that we needed in our previous furnace… Highly recommend it ..
I can say nothing but good about this furnace. I liked it so much I bought a second one for the shop. The people you deal with are just as amazing!
This was absolutely one of the best purchases we have ever made. Getting 12 to 13 hour burns. It’s wonderful. The help and support that you get before during and after purchase is phenomenal.
We sure love ours. I think it’s been about 5 yrs. since we put it in. Working great.
I recommend anyone that is the market for a furnace this is the one you want. Best investment I have made for my home!! Thanks Lamppa
Nice setup. I’m on season 3 with mine. You are going to love it and the service is excellent.
