Greenwood Hydronic Wood Furnace
The Greenwood Hydronic Wood Furnace Series is a new design in wood burning boilers. The very first concept of the Hydronic Wood Furnace was thought of about 20 years ago. Greenwood offers a safe and clean alternative to the gas and oil burners of the world. Greenwood Hydronic Wood Furnace Series offers a safe and clean way to heat your home.
In addition to being one of the cleanest forms of heating, it is also environmentally friendly in terms of emissions and it is a renewable energy source. Unlike the other furnaces that do not have the capacity to keep a heat at 1100 degrees Fahrenheit, but with the Greenwood Hydronic Wood Furnace it is capable to heat about 1800 to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. This is accomplished by when the heat from the fire is caught by a water heat exchanger that is located above the firebox that is placed in the path of the escaping gases. The Greenwood Hydronic Wood Furnace offers a combustion efficiency of about 100%.
The combustion efficiency is determined by how much of the wood mass is transformed to energy. Some of the features that are installed in the Greenwood Hydronic Wood Furnace are the Aquastats; these are used to control the operation of the furnace. The aquastat is an attached to the interface of the furnace.
The heat exchanger, which is an option to the furnace, is used to transfer the heat from the furnace to the heating system that you have in your home. It works well with baseboard and forced air heating systems. The system will work great with an opened or closed system. The thermal efficiency of the Greenwood Hydronic Wood Furnace is 85%. Located inside the fire chamber is a ceramic refractory and it casts about 6″ thick and capable of working with temperatures in the range of 2500 Degrees Fahrenheit. The Greenwood Hydronic Wood Furnace includes an updraft flame path and a downdraft design for thermal transfer. There are three different models in the Greenwood Hydronic Wood Burning Furnace. The Series includes Models 100, 200 and 300. The Rated Output of Btu’s per hour are 100,000 Btu’s, 200,000 Btu’s and 300,000 Btu’s per hour.
The heating capacity for the Model 100 is up to 4,000 Square Feet, Model 200 has a heating capacity of 8,000 Square Feet and Model 300 has a heating capacity of up to 12,000 Square Feet. Due to the size of the furnaces, the Model 100 has a maximum log length of 18″, Model 200 has a maximum log length of 28″ and Model 300 uses a maximum log length of 38″. Each wood furnace can easily burn un-split logs and either dry or unseasoned logs. These types of logs burn cleanly and evenly. By using this wood-burning furnace to heat your home it can save you a lot of money on your heating bills and your energy costs.
