Wood boilers are used to heat homes and commercial spaces. They are judged on variables such as fuel efficiency, environmental impacts, costs of operation, price, durability and heating efficiency. Wood boilers make use of different technologies to produce and distribute heat throughout a home or workspace, and all manufacturers market their brands on common platforms such as safety, affordability and comfort.
Mahoning wood boilers are outdoor furnaces, and particularly preferable to users who have allergic reactions to an indoor furnace's smoke, fuel and fumes. An outdoor furnace eliminates safety hazards such as toxic gas build-up (carbon monoxide) and chances of fires. One furnace efficiently heats up a home and its water supply, and comes ready to be hooked up to an existing heating system. Mahoning furnaces can switch between fuel types; the furnace can run on both wood and natural gas, switching to one fuel source when the other runs out. Some Mahoning models also run on different fuel types, such as wood, coal, oil, gas and propane.
EKO Line boilers use a combustion system known as "wood gassification," giving highly efficient overall heating. EKO Line boilers burn less wood than traditional boilers, giving off less smoke and saving wood for the owner. The boiler provides cleaner air, with no significant emissions of greenhouse gases. New Horizon Corporation, the name behind EKO Line, also manufacturers other boiler variants such as wood coal boilers and commercial boilers.
Wood Master offers products that may serve as the primary heating system or as an addition to an existing system. The furnaces are engineered for greater efficiency and comfort by enabling production of more usable heat from cleaner, affordable sources. Wood Master furnaces are compatible with most heating systems, including hot water, radiant baseboard, forced air, water-to-water and in-floor. The company has wood furnaces and pellet furnaces, and offers features such as radiant in-floor heating, electronic temperature control system and in-ground snow and ice melting systems.
Wood Doctor uses super-insulated pipes to transfer hot water underground, heating multiple units with a single furnace. Built with "certified North American boiler plate steel," the furnace comes with a 30-year limited warranty. The HE-8000 model burns substantially less amounts of wood and is EPA Phase 2 qualified; other models such as the HE-5000 and HE-10000 are also equally efficient, burning only half the wood as a regular stove.
Portage and Main
Portage and Main Outdoor Furnaces claims that there are still 20-year-old units in operation today. The furnaces have high efficiency rating and are coated with extremely durable paints, so the boiler will still look good after years of use. The furnaces are equipped with Johnson Controls, digital controls for water temperature.
