All About Wood Stoves

I have two concerns with heating the electric tank directly using the wood boiler. From an energy point of view, unless you employ some controls the electric elements will always keep water in the tank up at or wherever you set them. That means the boiler can only heat above that. It isn’t allowed to do much work.

An indoor wood furnace uses less wood than an outdoor furnace or boiler, but it needs to be filled more often and you have to split the wood into smaller pieces. Outdoor wood burning equipment can also often take longer pieces so there is less cutting.

The systems use a common code, First thing you need to do is go to Google or similar and punch in furance thermostat wiring or similar and study for minites so the terms used makes sence. It is not compilcated to install nor operate and it is not expensive. I have installed 4 now including my own and “fixed” 2 others that were installed wrong and all work perfectly. Here is how I do it. First thing is your indoor furance thermostat must have a “fan on” feature, if it doesnt you must buy a new thermostat that does have that feature and install it.

Again I am not going into the wiring here as it gets too long winded and depends on your furnace controller type. Nice instructions come wih the ‘stats too. You do this prior to adding Thermostat number 2 then once you have your indoor furnace up and going with your new thermostat you are ready to proceed to the easy part, wiring up the 2nd thermostat to control the fan when running the OWB. Find the two wires that are connected when you sellect Fan On.

One of them will have control voltage at all times, the other will have it only when you have selected Fan-On. Cut the wire that does not have voltage all the time and attach a wire to both ends you just cut that is long enough to reach your second thermostat.

How Outdoor Wood Furnaces Work

You have a link proving you can’t have a cold air return in the same room as a woodstove? I find that hard to believe, considering the fact that many people have their woodstoves in their living room, and they also have a cold air return in their living rooms. Also, what about open concept houses, how is a room defined?

It’s also common sense. Now, I do think if I looked even further, there might be a distance you must be from the fireplace or wood stove, but it’s best not to have a return air inlet near your solid-fuel burning appliance – ever.

The use of outdoor wood furnaces for heating is gaining new popularity with plentiful wood supplies and its cost effectiveness, low impact on the environment and the advent to safe, convenient, and long lasting stainless steel outdoor wood furnaces.

Welcome to the best way to heat with wood! It is usually sourced locally and is often free. The ability to heat multiple buildings and water with wood can virtually eliminate your heating bills. Conventional heat sources like fuel oil, propane and natural gas will always be susceptible to price fluctuations and are irreplaceable fossil fuels. It also eliminates the smoke, ashes, odors and soot buildup on walls and ceilings inside your home that indoor burning creates.

WE have Domestic Hot Water Installation Kits, Hot water heater Side Arm Installation Kits for Domestic Hot Water Water Coil Installation Kits and Water-to-air Heat Exchanger Installation.

Sidearm Heat Exchanger A sidearm heat exchanger is a device used in conjunction with an outdoor wood furnace to heat your domestic hot water. Did you know your hot water heater accounts for about 20 percent of your monthly energy bill? Hot water is a luxury we can’t live without, but heating your household water can be expensive. If you currently have, or plan on installing an outdoor wood furnace, a sidearm heat exchanger can be a great investment. How do they work?

Well, they’re pretty simple. The larger tube fits over the smaller tube like a jacket. Heat exchange takes place though a process called thermosiphon. Thermosiphon is a method of heat exchange through convection. By using convection, water from your hot water heater can be drawn up through your heat exchanger without the use of mechanical pumps. The larger outer tube is plumbed into the water flow loop coming from your outdoor wood furnace.

BTU means British thermal units, which is a common measurement of heat used for any kind of heating device.

It is necessary for a gas or oil furnace to produce this amount of heat to take the bi-products of combustion out of the home.

When it came time to hook up the stove, however, we learned that experts have mixed thoughts on ducted outdoor air for wood stoves. We decided to hook up the stove without the ducted outdoor air supply and see what happened.

The Pollution Control Device uses an intelligent catalytic approach. The Earth Bio-Fuel Controller EBC manages the device to pre-heat the catalyst, manage power and control oxygen to reduce smoke and combustion gases, especially useful during start-up and reload. Most of our current boilers burn extremely clean as they already achieve gasification.

Our new units will just have a more efficient gasification system and meet all the new requirements by EPA and UL. I personally use one of our current units and it smokes less than most average fireplaces when it is idling and you can hardly tell it is burning when it is in full burn cycle. I have to look for the heat waves near the chimney to know if it is still burning. I am also getting hour burn times when using good aged hard wood. When I burn junk wood I get more like hour burns.

Burn time efficiency varies based on alot of factors, but I have had several reports from dealers that are similiar. We are also growing and looking for new dealers. If you are interested please let us know. We know some companies are going out of business because of these regulations or other reasons.

Videos 1 Add Review Highly efficient combustion is achieved in the Optimizer by using the wood gasification process. Refractory brick lining of both burn chambers help produce then absorb the high temperatures generated. Maximum heat extraction is then obtained by passing the exhausting air through vertical and horizontal passes heating the water in the surrounding water jacket quickly and efficiently. Air is injected above, over, the fire from air injection ports running the length of the firepot.

I’ve done a lot of modifications to the boiler since I posted in this thread and have documented it all on video. Here’s my youtube playlist from start to finish: It held up well except for the very top, the constant abrasion of putting in firewood was too much for it. This year, I switched to a more proper material. I used a ceramic fiber blanket, coated with a hard liner to protect it.

So far, it is holding up so much better.
