The Inside Story On Outdoor Wood Furnaces

With increasing concerns about the environment and the unpredictability of energy costs, wood is becoming a popular source of heat for many homeowners and businesses. As a fuel source, wood is inexpensive, readily available, and totally renewable. And, burning wood as a source of heat is better for our environment than heating systems that rely on nonrenewable fossil fuels such as coal or oil.

You may already be using an indoor wood stove or wood-burning heating system and you're looking for a better way to continue using wood as a heat source. Or maybe you're interested in heating with wood, but don't want the problems associated with burning wood inside your home or business.

While burning wood indoors can mean many problems, there is an alternative -- The Classic outdoor wood furnace from Central Boiler. The Classic eliminates the problems associated with indoor burning and allows you to get even more benefits from wood heat. And The Classic can actually improve the indoor environment in your home or business, while eliminating the time-consuming chore of tending a traditional wood stove. In addition, recent tests show that The Classic is the most efficient outdoor wood furnace, with the fewest emissions.


Looks Great: Less Filling

The Classic outdoor wood furnace is installed outside, away from the home. A water jacket surrounds the furnace firebox - heated water is pumped to the home or building through insulated underground pipes.

Water-to-air or water-to-water heat exchangers or direct circulation conveys the heat into the structure's forced-air furnace, or radiant floor heating system. This allows for normal thermostatic control of temperatures for safe, even, comfortable heat.


How Heat From The Classic Gets To Your Home

  • The Classic can be located up to 500 feet away from the home or building being heated.

  • Heated water from The Classic is pumped to the home or building through insulated, underground pipes -- the most efficient way to move heat over distances.

  • Depending on the existing heating system in the home or building, a heat exchanger or direct circulation conveys the heat into a forced-air furnace, boiler, or radiant floor heating system. This gives you normal thermostatic temperature control.

  • In addition, by installing a water-to-water heat exchanger, The Classic can also provide all of your domestic hot water, allowing you to save on your electric or gas bill.
