Any Experiences with the Hitzer Furnace models?

I tried the search function, but couldn't find much specific information on the Hitzer Furnace models.

I trust from all I have read that Hitzer makes a good product, just have not seen much posted about the furnaces.

The Hitzer website leaves something to be desired in specifications.

Thanks to all the regular contributors for your time and efforts!

Hi Greyhound, there is one owner/operator of a Hitzer furnace on the forum, he replaced a US Stove unit that wouldn't work for him. I'm unable to remember right now.

When my brain begins to function again, I'll try to post a link to his thread on his new furnace.

I have the 82 FA and love it. It is a hand fired unit with add on blower. You do not need to use the blow package. It can be ducted into your existing duct system and use the fan from your furnace. My house is about 3000 sqft and was built in 1823. 82 FA heats the house without a problem. When it gets below zero I do need to turn the gas furnace on to keep the house at 70. But I should be able to take care of that with some duct modifications.

As Greg stated I replaced a US Stove product that would not burn coal. The Hitzer burns wonderfully and if you're new to coal a good burning stove make life a lot easier.

Now that we are getting closer to the heating season I will be visiting the forum daily. If I can be of assistance, just ask.
