Title: Outdoor wood furnace
Post by BnW on Feb 12th, 2018, 1:50pm
We have/had an indoor wood furnace in our house which we have been using up until a couple of weeks ago. Ended up with a flu fire which badly cracked our masonry flu. So I've decided to put in an outdoor wood furnace instead of fixing the flu. Does anyone on here have one? I've been looking at the HyPro Therm boilers, any input on them?

BnW,
My Good Friend BIG is familiar with those systems. He was on BTO for a short time. I just text messaged Him. He has installed and used a number of those units. The newest installation He believes is the best one. It could be the change from pine to eastern hardwood as fuel that made the difference? IIRC, His is a boiler with a squirrel cage blower over a heat exchanger and warm air duct work inside the house.
My Cousin uses one that is a boiler that heats water for a circulating hot water system with radiator/registers, inside the house. I'll let You know once I hear from BIG.

Thanks for checking in on it for me Greg. I'm looking at the water furnace in order to get the unit away from my house in a direction that smoke from the stove won't be an issue. Been doing some pricing on that insulated Pex line and boy are they sure proud of that stuff!! I've been checking out the HyPro Therm 185 model which would be considerable overkill for my house, but figured if I ever get the opportunity to buy the home directly behind me I could heat both with it. It's a coal boiler but wood can be used, and it has an option of 1/2" fire box and bottom of the water jacket.

BnW, received a reply. Heatmaster G 200 is the unit they are using now. He was thinking about trading up (With his Daughter and Son-in-Law)? Because He wants to heat His barn/shop as well.
Here is a link.
Hope this helps?

BnW,
Yes these are boilers. Look at the fire box on the Heatmaster. It is not carbon steel or cast iron. It is a ferritic stainless steel that is supposed to hold up better.
