In the last post, we discussed some compelling reasons to invest in an outdoor furnace, specifically, a Heatmor brand furnace. Current owners of outdoor furnaces report that they are using up to 25% to 70% less wood compared to traditional wood furnaces and of course have far more efficient heating compared to using other heating sources or fuel sources. But before you invest in your own Heatmor residential furnace, it’s important to understand the full range of unique benefits they provide. Here’s part two of our guide that will explore some more convincing reasons to invest in a Heatmor residential furnace.
Heatmor furnaces are truly built with maximum efficiency in mind. The Heatmor brand does its best to optimize heat retention and limit energy loss. They achieve this by insulating their outdoor furnaces with a fiberglass bat insulation, which is the same type of insulation that is used to heat homes. The sides of the outdoor furnace are covered with R-19 insulation, and the top is covered with R-38 insulation. This insulation is not flammable. It’s also easy to access, long-lasting, and contributes to the structural integrity and efficiency of the furnace.
Heatmor furnaces are equipped with a tool for easily removing ashes, called an ash auger. The ash auger removes ashes from the rear of the furnace, making for a much easier process than the traditional method, which often requires the operator to wait until the fire has completely burned out or shovel the ashes out through the front door. This tool makes the tedious job of removing ashes easier than you ever thought possible.
Finally, Heatmor outdoor residential furnaces are available with many different options regarding color and functionality. They can be equipped with a shaker grate system to burn certified types of coal. There’s also the Pellet Burner and Used Oil Burner, an option that has the ability to burn both wood and used oil.
Ultimately, being aware of the many unique benefits of Heatmor furnaces can help you decide whether or not they’re right for your needs. Don’t hesitate to contact a Heatmor dealer near you for more information about the one-of-a-kind features that only a Heatmor furnace can provide.
