Add-On Wood/Coal Furnaces
The Woodchuck Add-on furnace line can eliminate the unpleasantries of in-home woodburning. The Woodchuck is usually placed next to your present Central Heating unit instead of the main living area of your home. This means NO firewood, dirt, or bark to clean up, or hot surfaces to guard from small children. Woodchuck offers the comfort of luxurious, even heat distributed throughout your home. The cost of oil and gas DOES NOT mean you must abandon or replace the central heating system designed for your home. After all, it's the oil and gas consumption we want to reduce, not the system.
FeaturesCold Air Return Filter Box--Provides a means of keeping any foreign materials or objects from getting into the blower housing and damaging it. It also provides a convenient manner in which to filter the system air as well as connecting a cold air return duct which is a MUST in any good installation.
Shaker Grates--On the Model 2900/4000, shaker grates are a standard feature, a must when burning coal. The 2900/4000 is designed with an outside handle for shaking ashes without having to open the ash door.
|80/20 Combustion Air Selector--Extensive
research conducted by various laboratories around the country show that
as wood burns, 80% of it burns in the gaseous state while 20% burns as
fixed carbon in the solid state. Coal burns just the opposite of wood,
that is 80% burns as fixed carbon and 20% burns in the gaseous state. The
studies also show that combustion air should be preheated before entering
the firebox. Only Woodchuck furnaces provide a mechanism that not only
preheats the combustion air but also allows the operator to choose the
proper setting depending on the type or amount of fuel used.
Heavy Duty Cast Iron Doors and Safety Latches--Both the loading and ash door are made of high quality, heavy cast iron to resist cracking or warping due to high temperatures. This insures an airtight seal and safety. The doors are equipped with positive latches and the loading door has a two stage safety latch.
The Smart Box--This is the "brain" of the Woodchuck furnace.
Double Back--The Model 2900/4000 firebox back is set back approximately 2". This allows the blower to circulate air over more firebox area increasing the transfer efficiency of the unit. Model 4000 also also has double front.
As you can
see, the Woodchuck add-on furnace is the simplest most
cost efficient answer to your high home heating costs.
Remember there is no substitute for comfort! Join the thousands of
satisfied and warm Woodchuck owners.
OptionsDomestic Coil--In addition to heating, the Woodchuck line of furnaces can provide the hot water for your domestic use. The forced air unit can be equipped with a coil that fits right inside the firebox.

Catalytic Combustors--The Models 2900, 4000 and some older models will accept a catalytic combustor. The combustors are easily installed and removed and help insure that the small amount of unburned material is destroyed before it leaves the unit. This further increases combustion efficiency and decreases emissions while reducing the accumulation of creosote and the hazard of a chimney fire.
