Just starting to research them a little.Have a shop and house and plenty of wood. I have been heating the house with a free standing wood space heater for 30 years and want to upgrade. Any input from those with knowledge on brand names etc. would be great. Thanks, Gus.

Most of the outdoor units smoke and are really not as efficient as advertized. If you want a relatively smoke free and efficient unit visit the GARN web site. Done load the movie and watch a 10 year old unit work.

Have done a little research, and have been most impressed with Heatmor. Sister-in-law has one and they are very happy with it.

I have two near-neighbors who have them and both swear by them. One is force air, the other is steam boiler. Both burn free wood they scrounge from all around...old pallets, stumps or you name it. Both have had them long enough to find the problems, and neither does anything but sing the praises of their boilers. I do not know the brands, but they are not the same.

I have a Central Boiler for 2 years now. I burn about 8 cords a year, with a 3500 sq ft house set at 73 degrees. I get my wood from a tree cutting service for $200 a semi load. 5 cords a semi load, average. I have to cut them to lengths. Approx. 2-3 ft. long, no splitting. It has saved me $$$$$$$$$$$$, well worth the work. Though by spring, I'm glad I don't have to load the thing anymore.
Its easy to use, took a year to figure the thing out. One thing I found out is, DON'T split the wood. It burns slower if it is whole. I do have to fill the water because of boil overs more often than the factory said. About every month or so, I stick the hose in and top it off.
I'm very happy with mine, and I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

Thanks Boss. Do you also heat your hot water? I will have to put a heat exchanger in my furnace and blow air through it. Same with the shop. I have heard of central boiler. Thanks again, Gus.

I don't heat my water with it. In this county they only allow external hot water heating, and the manufacturer said that it wouldn't be worth it to buy it and install it. BUT they do make an internal heating system that works great, I may put it in later.
