https://centralboiler.com Watch to find out how Central Boiler outdoor wood boiler furnaces can help you reduce or eliminate your home and business heating expenses. You can even heat multiple buildings with one Central Boiler outdoor furnace... It's that affordable. AND at the same time you'll be more comfortable and have endless hot water! The whole thing is really simple. From installation to operation, you can do it yourself. Central Boiler outdoor furnaces are flexible and will work with any heating system you have. The furnace works by burning wood to heat water. The heated water is circulated through insulated underground pipes called ThermoPEX to the buildings being heated. The Thermopex underground pipe enters your home and connects to your water heater through a heat exchanger. What that means is we heat all your domestic water. From there it connects to your forced air, in-floor radiant, or indoor boiler heating system and sends the heat around your home. The water is then sent back to the furnace through the Thermopex to be reheated. All of this, simply controlled by a regular thermostat. Your guests won't even know you're heating with wood. This basic setup can be used to run lines to multiple buildings if you like. Some people even heat 2 homes with one Central Boiler outdoor furnace. If you would like to expand or enhance your current heating system, Central Boiler has all the accessories and options you need. Add a hydronic radiator by your entryway to keep it warm and dry in the winter. A kickspace floor heater let's you do the dishes and keep your footies nice and toasty. Do you have a kids room that always seems to be cooler than the rest of the house? Easily connect the free-standing corner fan convector to save space. You can even heat your pool or hot tub with a Central Boiler outdoor furnace. These accessories can be added during your furnace installation or at a later time. If you have never heated with wood before, Central Boiler makes it easy with videos and guides to help you get started. Many of our customers enjoy cutting their own wood. It's a great family activity. Or many of our customers purchase wood and have it delivered as it's readily available and inexpensive. Additionally, Central Boiler offers furnace models that work with different fuel sources. The Maxim furnace uses wood pellets, corn, or biomass and the Central Boiler Forge outdoor coal furnace is a cleaner way to heat with coal. Installing a Central Boiler is easier than you might think. Many customers choose to install their own furnace because the installation can be easily completed using the installation manual. Authorized Central Boiler dealers have all the supplies, accessories, and information you need to get started. Most dealers also offer installation services if you want. A Central Boiler outdoor furnace is the simple way to experience a new level of comfort in your home and heat more space than ever before with less money. Go to centralboiler.com for model details, guides on how to do it yourself, and to find a dealer near you.

There is about a 20 year payback on these if youre lucky.. Ridiculously expensive
Central Boiler (1 month ago)
We’ve heard countless customers say their furnace paid for itself in 4-6 years. Customers that realize the quickest and biggest benefits are those with homes that may have a higher heat loss, heat multiple buildings, also heat their water or have higher overall heat demands. However, we have many standard single-family homes that also find this an economical alternative and appreciate that they don’t have to worry about constantly fluctuating heating costs. To find the payback for your application, check out the Saving & Sizing Calculator here: https://centralboiler.com/Apps/SavingsCalculator
Good for a cabin in the woods with limited utilities. Not for city use new furnace is much more efficient and easy to maintain.

The only reason to have it outside is to hide it from guests? Why so far away?
Central Boiler (1 month ago)
There are many advantages to having your wood furnace outside. It keeps all the mess, dust, bugs, and wood outside. It saves time as you don’t need to haul the wood indoors. It keeps any smoke and dust outside making your home and air cleaner, and it’s much safer to keep the fire outside. Safety is the main reason to put the unit 50 to 75 feet from the home; also some insurance companies have requirements. It can certainly be operated safely closer to the home, but it does require the operator to have good housekeeping habits.

If it heats up the water I guess you burn wood year round ? Or am I missing something...
Central Boiler (2 months ago)
You can use the Central Boiler furnace year round to heat your water, but you don’t have to. The water heater is connected with a nonintrusive side-arm heat exchanger. You can bypass it in the summer just by closing a valve. For example, if you have an electric water heater, you can flip off the breaker while the Central Boiler furnace is heating the water and save on your electric bill. Then when you shut down the Central Boiler furnace for the summer, you can flip the breaker back on and the water heater will go back to electric heat. It’s similar for other types of water heaters as well.

I'm no engineer but it seems inefficient to transfer the heat from the fire, to the water, then to the air. Using it for hot water or for in floor radiant heating sounds good though.
Central Boiler (2 months ago)
There is a small efficiency loss when you transfer the heat but for most people the safety factor is worth it. There is no indoor carbon monoxide concern like there is for oil or gas heat.

Now imagine if there were an airtight box above the fire where you could gasify wood and run a generator

Make sure you have "soft" water, or you'll get scale in the supply water line which would let to low water flow, and "no heat"

how often do you have to reload the furnace? wood type oak or hickory.
Central Boiler (3 months ago)
How often you have to reload depends on the heat load of your home/application and on the size of furnace you have. If you have a larger furnace, it's similar to a larger gas tank on a car. Most customers size their furnaces to just fill the firebox once or twice a day. Here's a video on firebox volume that may help: https://youtu.be/cU9KUetmP2g

I would build a wood shed over it and vent through the roof. That keeps wood dry and keep the expensive wood burner out of the rain. Nobody wants to stand in the freezing rain or snow while loading firewood.
Damnit Bobby (9 days ago)
+James Snyder Personally I'd never put the burner inside a building let alone a building I cared about, like a garage. Insurance premiums would go up, it's probably pulling in a good amount of air for the fire and it's just not as safe as simply building a lean-to shed/roof away from buildings. My idea of a wood shed is no walls, just a roof to keep everything dry (stove + wood) and post to hold the roof up.
James Snyder (9 days ago)
Not a bad idea. Would it be smart/safe to put it in a stand-alone garage?
Shirley Clark (2 months ago)

I wish I knew of this concept when I lived in the mountains a few years ago, I'd still be living there!
Darren Wright (4 months ago)
Just curious... my only source of heat is a wood stove centrally located in my home. I have no furnace/ductwork, etc. My home is a walkout basement two story style (west, South, and east walls are in a hillside. Without the furnace and duct work, what are options, without totally destroying ceilings and floors would I have to install a central boiler?
Central Boiler (4 months ago)
This would depend on many things Darren.  If you have access to the floor joists (unfinished basement ceiling) you could install radiant floor heat.  You also could use hot water base board heaters, a central forced air furnace, or you could do individual room heaters. We suggest talking to your local Central Boiler dealer and they can lay out some options for you.  Here’s a link to our dealer locator: https://centralboiler.com/dealer-locator

See outdoor wood furnaces often in the mountains.  Why do they seem to be smokey all the time.  I would think they would clean out and then burn clean.  What gives.

Can I buy it in india
Joe G (3 months ago)
As Central boiler states, need to use dry seasoned wood. People who use these often use unseasoned wood and other combustibles because its convenient and you don't have to worry about burning down the home. You get more btu's out of dry seasoned wood though and the boiler will last longer and stay cleaner. People are naturally just cheap in the short term and lazy in the long run.

+Central Boiler Is this thing complaint in California? Just curious.
Central Boiler (1 year ago)
Central Boiler has a complete line of EPA-certified, clean-burning outdoor wood and wood pellet furnaces. Burning dry seasoned wood also helps reduce condensation and steam from being released from the chimney. Please check out our furnaces at https://centralboiler.com/products/
Fred Cupp (1 year ago)
I’ve had a central boiler for 9 years. I burn about 5 cords of wood that I cut. If you figure about 130-150 a cord that isn’t bad. I mainly burn wood that no one wants and the dealer support is awesome although I haven’t used it but my brother has. We now keep a pump repair kit on hand for emergencies. Yes it expensive but you get what you pay for!
Lars Swede (2 months ago)
That would be about 20 000 lbs (9000 kg) of wood. How much do you load per day? And how far north/south do you live.
Gene Smay (6 months ago)
How many times a day are you loading it?
Mike Ilnitsky (8 months ago)
what is the home size, and what zone you are in? I am trying to figure wood usage, for 9000sq ft combined space in zone 4. Seems like Central Boiler has no phone with live person to answer, and I need it fast.
R-ville Dave (1 year ago)
I have a low yield well. How much water does the unit use to heat a 2000 square foot home?
Gene Smay (6 months ago)
It's a closed loop system I assume. Once the system is full and bled the well is of no importance.
Central Boiler (1 year ago)
That would depend on the size of the furnace required. Please visit our sizing and savings calculator,  https://centralboiler.com/Apps/SavingsCalculator/, or your local Central Boiler dealer,https://centralboiler.com/dealer-locator/ to determine what size furnace you need.

Can I burn trash?
Gene Smay (6 months ago)
Especially when your kids throw in a few empty aerosol deodorant or hair spray cans..BOOM or a dirty diaper.. haha
Central Boiler (1 year ago)
You should only burn dry seasoned wood. Burning trash can not only be bad for the environment but can also drastically shorten the life of your wood burning appliance.

How much power does it use?
Wyatt Boche (1 year ago)
Can you make the pump variable speed?
John DiMartino (1 year ago)
Growmeister Smith you need 2 additional circulators, one can be a smaller 007 size, the one that brings the hot water into the house should be at least an 009 if the lines are short and loads small , most ppl end of needing an 11-13 gpm circulator to avoid large temp drops .. then there’s the aqua stat that needs a small amount of power and the air door solenoid (usually 20-60 Watts ) and the blower motor if it has one ... all told you can expect about a 200-250 watt continuous increase in your usage . It’s about $15-20 a month for mine

Is there a minimum depth the thermal insulated pex can be at? I have a ton of ledge/bedrock on my property?
Central Boiler (1 year ago)
We suggest 6 to 12 inches beneath the surface. Technically, it could be less. It can also be temporarily installed above ground, however, you will want to consult a dealer for details on this type of installation.
