Yeah I’m gutted I really liked this stove but thanks I really appreciate your input, not sure where to go from here my wife is thinking just to put the old stove back, and a coworker gave me the cell phone number of her bro in law who does landscaping and he has wood for free if I help with splitting itI double-checked the EPA database before posting. Currently, only the Jotul F500v3 is on the tax-credit qualified list from the EPA. If the tech thinks it is, then he should be able to show you the certificate for documentation. I doubt it. Jotul would be marketing the heck out of the F45 if it qualified, like they do for the F500v3. The F45 has no such claim.
