US Stove 1602R Series Hotblast Wood and Coal Furnace
Product Review (submitted on January 26, 2014):
We have an older brick ranch home that is 2000sf with a long duct that does not reduce. There is not basement and the furnace sits in the garage. It's not the best set up, but it was that way when we bought it this summer. The old wood furnace was 105k btu with a 500cfm blower. It simply would not heat my house. Wood consumption was extremely high and I was never able to heat my house over 66 degrees.
Since installing this furnace we are finally warm! The dual 800cfm fans move much more air through my long, non-reduced ducts and the stove is much more efficient, burning less wood and giving us a great capacity to heat. During sub-zero days we have been nice and toasty at 72degrees without much work from the furnace!
I'm super impressed and glad I made the switch. It will pay for itself in a year or two.
