The outdoor furnace has become popular among rural housing in recent years. This outdoor furnace is designed to provide efficient heat as a supplement or a main source, while keeping the mess of heating with wood or coal in the great outdoors. The outdoor furnace is made to be installed using the existing HVAC ductwork and can heat a home up to 3000 square feet. The unit does require return air, has a 6" flue collar and a large 1800 CFM blower. The ash pan is removable, and is located in a separate ash door. The damper is manually run, so it can be set to your preference, and the outdoor furnace can burn wood or coal. The outdoor furnace is weather sealed and powder coated for durability. The doors, grates and liners are all extra heavy duty cast iron and the firebox is firebrick lined for greater efficiency. The chimney adapter kit is sold separately..

- Working very well Review by Adam
Value Quality Price
Bought this outdoor furnace in Nov 2014. Hooked it up to the existing ductwork that the packaged heat pump used. As one reviewer pointed out there is some air leaks around the blower enclosure but was very easily remedied by some silicone caulk. There doesn't seem to be much speed difference between low-med-high on the fan but I've left mine on high and all vents inside have adequate air flow. The two dampers took a bit of learning to get down but have it working well now. It very much depends on the dryness of wood or fuel you use, coal should be more consistent and easier to get the dampers set how you need them. I added a $5 cast iron damper in the flue pipe just to have another regulation point for the draft. Depending on how much and how dry the wood I use is this furnace can blow 130F air out the vents easily. I can add 4 or 5 decent size seasoned logs and it last all night (8-9 hours) and still have a bed of coals in the morning. Thermostat works well and is a very basic mercury based setup, nothing to really break, it opens damper when the house calls for heat and once it reaches set point it closes. Feel free to send over any questions, I'm no expert by any means but will do my best to answer based on my setup and experience - polshrk (at) gmail (dot) com

WOOD STOVES AND MOBILE HOME SAFETY:
Before a wood stove may be installed in a mobile home, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that specific regulations be satisfied. First, the stove model must have been tested by a HUD-approved laboratory and listed for use in mobile homes. A metal tag permanently fastened to the rear of the appliance indicates the name of the testing facility and the stove's compliance with HUD Standard UM-84. Second, a tested and listed prefabricated chimney system—connected directly to the stove and installed properly—must be used. Third, a hard ducting system for bringing outside combustion air directly to the stove's air inlet is required. And finally, some means of securing the stove to the floor of the home is called for.
In addition to the HUD requirements, some basic clearance and installation guidelines, provided by the stove manufacturer and based on testing to Underwriters' Laboratory Standard 1482, should be adhered to.
As a mobile home owner, your choice of wood stoves is limited to those approved by HUD, but you won't be disappointed by the selection. Most manufacturers either make stoves specifically for use in mobile homes or have adapter kits available to bring standard models into compliance with the established regulations. In general, HUD-approved units burn wood rather than coal, have a moderate BTU output, and incorporate a top-exiting flue collar.
Since the stove models are tested individually, the manufacturer provides minimum clearance information specific to each model, based on its laboratory performance. Don't assume that a 25,000-BTU/hr stove can safely be placed closer to a wall than a 40,000-BTU/hr model, because it's not necessarily true; configuration, design, and a host of other factors can easily get in the way of common sense.

I found on the Product Page under the Product Manual on page 5 that this furnace must be connected to a 110 volt Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlet suitable for outdoor use. A back-up generator, 2,000 watts minimum, is recommended in case of a power outage. I hope this answers your questions. Thank you for contacting Rural King.com
