Homeowners in Spokane County that heat with a non-EPA certified wood-burning stove or one that was made prior to 1999 can save on an upgrade to new wood, pellet, or gas devices or a ductless, mini-split-system heat pump. Residents must use a wood stove as a primary or secondary heat source regularly.

Savings range from $700-$1500 depending on the replacement system and is subtracted from the price of a new system, which typically starts at $3,000.
We enforce federal, state and local regulations to reduce air pollution. Our authority was established under the 1967 Washington Clean Air Act (RCW 70.94) and we became fully activated on January 1, 1969.
2019 marks the 50th year that we have been working with you for clean air. Together we can continue improving air quality over the next 50 years and beyond. Learn more about our 50th anniversary and our clean air progress since 1969.
There are currently seven local air agencies established in some portions of our state. Where no local air agency is established, or the air agency cannot perform the statutory duties required under Washington law, the Washington State Department of Ecology has this authority to regulate and enforce issues related to air quality.
Our Board of Directors believes that a fully-funded, technically-capable, and locally-controlled air quality agency is necessary to the environmental and economic health of Spokane County.
