Energy Tax Credit and Efficiency

Because our furnaces burn wood a single efficiency number is not really possible. However, because the air volume and flow is controlled in our furnaces, they burn very little wood compared to stoves and outdoor wood burners (OWB's). Smoke is not an issue either. All of our Eagle furnaces are UL Lis...

Re: how much wood to load

I believe this will help: Never load the wood above the top of the bottom row of firebrick. Start a fire with smaller pieces and then add larger ones until you develop a bed of hot coals.

Re: Best coal size

Hello NHDAN, Do you have an opinion as to why the coal would burn for weeks on end in the old stove but not in the new furnace? What is different? Airflow? Or lack of it? Air above the burn or below the burn? I have heard this before and I believe there are others who would like to know also. Maybe ...
