You could save up to $450 by clearing the air.

The Cowichan Valley Regional District is offering a $300 rebate to local residents who upgrade their outdated wood-burning stove to a cleaner heating system.

Some retailers are also offering an additional $50 rebate, which jumps to $150 at select outlets in March and April.

"Beginning March 3, 2014, residents of CVRD Electoral Areas, North Cowichan, Town of Ladysmith, Town of Lake Cowichan, and City of Duncan are all eligible for this program," a CVRD nmedia release states.

"Exchange your old, uncertified woodstove (pre-1994) for a new EPA-certified wood, pellet or gas heating appliance."

There is a limited number of rebates available. For details, please read the applications available on the Clear the Air Cowichan Burn it Smart and Resources webpages here.
