Does anyone heat with wood? I'm
thinking about getting 1 of these



I heard you use twice as much wood as to
a regular wood stove.

Is that kinda like a wood fired central heating unit?

I don't know about those but I have used wood stoves most of my life and they are very cheap to use, even if you have to buy wood, they are still cheaper than gas/propane or electric. I like the heat they put off, guess it reminds me of my child hood.

Some states are talking of a energy crises due to the cold. As long as I have a japanese chainsaw and one of them national forests I'm staying warm

I heat my home with a wood stove.
Actually its a warmer heat than the
ones you mentioned.

This is the stove I use to heat my
home.



It's air tight Quadra-Fire.Here in Michigan we
have a shortage on L.P.gas.
Either I'm getting one of these outside stoves or
going to get info on Geo-Thermo Heat.

We had an inside wood burning furnace when I was a teenager. It did burn quite a bit of wood but it was also heating a 3000 sq ft house. We burned most scrap stave wood. That was bought at a local sawmill. Stave wood is oak and hickory used to make bourbon barrels.

An outside wood furnace is also going to burn more wood than an inside stove because you are heating more of the house more evenly. Also you are losing some of the heat efficiency in the heat exchanger. Most outside stoves are boiler systems. The heat water you pump into the house to a heat exchanger usually placed in your old inside heat pump unit. Then the heat pump fan blows air over it instead of the old electric heating coils.

The people I've talked to say they're using about 40% more than they did with an inside stove , but its cleaner to use . No saw dust and dirt in the house

The chance of burning your home down
is harder to do with an outside stove.
I get everything inside so dusty,its
one of the cons.

Anyone heat with Geo-Thermo?

Thanks for all the replys.

Indoor one can be used during time of power outage, outdoor one relies on electric powered fan to bring heat in, so not helpful if power is out. The outdoor stoves are very popular for the safety and cleanliness aspects, but I don't know anyone that has one.

Thanks for your reply Purcussiondude,
I believe the wood stove I'm using now
heats my home fine.The 1 you have I don't
think it would fit anywhere in my home.

I didn't know about the outside wood stove
also runs on Electric,wouldn't be useful
during a power outage.

Gonna do more research on the geo-thermo
system.

Thanks Everyone for all your reply's,I
do appreciate it.

As with everything, there are pros & cons. Pros: they keep the mess of wood chips out of your house. They can also be tied into your hot water heater, thereby giving you 'free' hot water. Insurance companies like them better than a fireplace. Depending on the size of the unit, it can also be used to heat a workshop, swimming pool, additional house, etc. Cons: they do use more wood!! Ya GOTTA go outside to fill them! They do require electricity to pump the water & operate the fan. Many areas are banning them because they give off quite a lot of smoke to downwind neighbors. The woodpile seems to get further & further from the unit. Not as easy as ya might think to throw large chunks into it!!

i contemplated putting in a wood stove or pellet stove, but doing so would have upped my insurance rates almost tremendously. that coupled with the fact i am rarely home, it wouldn't make much sense except for the times when i am there.

wish it was possible though. my gas bill is ridiculous right now

The outside stove would have lower homeowner insurance.

The thermal mass stoves are good but some are very expensive. Especially the stone ones and require the floor to be reinforced due to their heavy weight.

Dad has a geothermal unit for his house. It is a very long term pay off for the cost. I think he said at least 15 years to make up the difference in energy savings. Of course you also lose heat in s power outage with this system.

I may just keep the 1 I have.Doesn't
matter if I loose power it still works.
I've had this stove since 1984 and replaced
the pipes once.It's a even heat throughout my
home.

This year was bad on buying wood,everything was
green and green causes creosote.That's what causes
most chimney fires.

Thanks Everyone for your reply's.Helped me
change my way of thinking.

We have too many non burn days here in Cali to make wood stoves a practical heating source. On non burn days you are only allowed a fire if it's your only source of heat. Most folks have gas whether public utility or propane tank.

That's why Geo-Thermal may be a solution
also.
