Using outdoor woodstoves to lower heat costs

We have seven woodstoves on our farm and we love all the money we are saving. We use the wood stoves to heat our buildings, home, genorator, pool, and water. The woodstoves allowed us to stop using propane all together. Also the woodstoves do not need a lot of wood and don't require constant fillings. We own a woodmaster, three johnson's and three Wood Doctor woodstoves. We beleive the Wood Doctor performs the best and will be installing another one for the new barn.

RE: Using outdoor woodstoves to lower heat costs

Outdoor wood boilers are banned in many areas because many of them are very inefficient, and pollution/smoke is a problem. People also burn all sorts of garbage in them since they're outdoors.

Most outdoor wood boilers don't come close to the efficiency or longevity the Dectra Garn units.

I have to laugh when I see all the displays at fairs, and sales/installation outfits advertising free heat as a marketing strategy. The installed prices of the highly efficient outdoor wood boilers, and highly efficient wood gasification boilers are quite high.

If I were concerned about using renewable energy, I'd be looking at a wood gasification wood boiler, or a pellet boiler. The europeans have some wood, multi-fuel and pellet burning equipment that make some of our hillbilly engineered systems look like toys.

I'm not 100% sure, but my guess is that Burn2788 is selling those furnaces. Perhaps that's why he dredged up a bunch of old, dead threads (some of them were last active over a year ago), and posted links to his website on them.
