New Woodchuck furnace

PostBy: cmk9180 On: Wed Sep 18, 2013 9:27 pm

This is an update to an old post. I was in the market for a dual-fuel furnace. It was a tossup between The DS Machine Kozy King and the Woodchuck. I picked the Woodchuck because of the customer service I received.

This is my new Woodchuck model 4000 furnace. It replaced a Hitzer 50-93. It has the capability of burning wood, anthracite, or bituminous coal. It is controlled by a thermostat. For the frigid winters we get here, the 180,000 BTUs should keep us warm. Installation is almost finished. I just have to hook up my cold air returns.

Questions or thoughts are welcome.

Thank you, gentlemen. I ran it for a couple days. Works awesome with wood. When I need a fire burning for more than a week, I will try coal. Thanks for flipping the pic. Didn't know you could do that.

Coal is outstanding. Getting pricey, though. I will still buy a couple tons.

Well it comes down to cost, do you have an alternative?

Yes. My family owns over 100 acres of hardwoods. I can cut all I want. I treat coal as a convenience. If I am not going to be home much, run coal. Run wood if I will be gone less than 10 hrs.

It's still cheaper for me to process firewood. I keep in shape doing it, and I never get nagged while doing it. :-)
