Heatmor 200 outdoor wood burner

PostBy: RS7 On: Fri Jul 18, 2014 10:54 pm

I am posting this for my brother who is looking to sell his 2005 Heatmor outdoor wood furnace.
Details:
Heatmor 200
Year: ~2005
Runs great
No shaker grates

He is looking to sell as he is installing geothermal into his house he recently purchased (November 2013). He is trying to determine how much it's worth. Can anyone on here help him out?

Thank you,

Ryan

I think I can. Under no circumstances install geothermal - stop now before you do any more damage to your wallet! Send all your heating needs to this board and they will advise. I hope I was in time.

Ditto on the geothermal fail! Not a good idea in PA. There is already a thread on that disaster, maybe I can dig it up for you. As far as helping out, this thread is heading to a more appropriate forum. :)

What last winter should have taught us all is that you need power in that heating system. Most did not have enough heating punch. Builders heating systems are underspecd for bad winters and this season could be worse. Anthracite has incredible power once you learn how to harness it. We have small differences here on our opinions of how to use that power but that is secondary to trying to extract energy from the earth which is a weak heat generator. If you go geothermal get used to massive maintenance bills, spikes in electricity usage and frozen winters as that is where you are headed. 'nuff said. STOP NOW.

ALWAYS get a second, third, fourth or fifth opinion. You can purchase a lifetime of coal for less than the initial cost of a GEO system. If your brother is convinced, then by all means go for it.

I wonder if he ever considered a Coal Stoker Boiler? Plenty of info on this forum, and hundreds of experienced users. Just a thought to pass along.......

Most OWB units are rotted out or paper thin in 10 years (or less). If his appears to be in good shape and doesn't have any leaks, list it for a couple grand and see if anyone calls. It is only worth what someone is willing to give him, regardless of what any of us think.

All,

Thanks for the info. I should have stated that currently the OWB is his ONLY heat source with no backup. He bought the house from the Amish. He is fed up with having to load OWB two times a day so his family stays warm. I also should have stated that he is considering a ground source heat pump an not an air to air heat pump, which is much more efficient no matter how cold it is outside. Air to air are really expensive to run in PA, a ton of electrically in cold months.

Back to the point that he already has a hydronic heating system.......so please ask him to look around on the forum and feel free to ask questions along the way. :idea:

Nothing wrong with the OWB being the only heat source,many people have no backup for their oil/propain heater. Heat pumps are not the way to go if one is interested in heating to comfortable level in the house & be affordable. Got a chimney ? get a coal boiler/coal stove/stoker ,hook to the chimney,lots of heat & low $$.He already has water pipes in place just change to coal boiler in a shed.

That is the marketing BS and we can argue all day but take my advice listen to the guys on this board and save a bunch of green. I looked into this 7 years ago, people who have these systems are not happy.

I doubt your brother is going to be concerned with the heat pumps efficiency rating when he is freezing his arse off in the dead of winter. Go with a stoker boiler and live comfortably at a reasonable cost. I service my Axeman about every two days when it is bitter cold out, takes about 10 minutes. Dump the ash pan and toss a few bags in the hopper, done.

I paid $1200 for my 200ss. It was around 12 years old at the time. I put a coal boiler in 4 years later.
