Wood Heat: Good For You, Good For Our Environment.

A wood heating system is the right choice for the increasing number of people who are concerned about our environment. Unlike systems that rely on fossil fuels, wood is a totally renewable resource, which, when burned, results in no net carbon dioxide increase. Carbon dioxide is part of the natural plant-growth cycle and occurs naturally when trees are allowed to rot on the forest floor. On the other hand, fossil fuels, when burned, release carbon dioxide which otherwise would stay trapped in the earth. This causes a net increase in carbon dioxide, which is believed to be responsible for the heat-trapping "greenhouse effect." In addition, harvesting firewood has a pruning effect on forests, which allows new growth to flourish. And the wood you burn most likely comes from your local area -- it's not imported, as is the case with oil.


"Before, with our two indoor wood stoves, we had problems with smoke in the house, soot, and dirt. We were concerned about how safe they were, and we had to load them every three hours. With our Central Boiler Classic outdoor wood furnace, we feel much safer, and we only have to load it about every two days. Also, my son has asthma, and since we got the outdoor furnace, he's had fewer problems. I think it's because the air is much cleaner inside now. That was a real unexpected benefit. Probably the best one of all."
Eliminates your heating bill...

For many owners that cut their own wood, or use scrap wood, they can entirely eliminate their heating bills.

By burning wood, a renewable resource, an average home will save enough nonrenewable fossil fuel to operate an automobile for a full year.
Classic Advantages

The Classic provides the warmth, comfort, and economic advantages of burning wood -- without the mess, inconvenience, and dangers posed by indoor burning.
Indoor Or Outdoor Burning? Be Safe At Home.

Safety is a major consideration when it comes to burning wood as a heat source. An estimated 73,800 home heating fires in 1994 killed 487 people and injured almost 2,000 people. But the Classic removes the fire hazard from the home or building being heated -- all burning takes place remotely, up to 500 feet away. There's no indoor burning, indoor smoke, and no threat of a devastating chimney fire. Also, indoor burning can affect air quality, and even create a dangerous buildup of carbon monoxide. With the Classic, these problems are eliminated. You get clean, comfortable warmth -- and peace of mind. All of the Classic models have been tested and listed to UL and CSA standards, except the Pallet Burner which is listed by OMNI.  
Energy Costs: Get A Handle On Your Heating Bills.

Energy costs are a major household or business expenditure, especially in harsher winter climates. As a fuel source, wood -- in addition to being readily available and totally renewable -- is also very inexpensive compared to other fuel sources. In fact, the energy savings realized by heating with the Classic can often pay back the purchase price in the first two years. By adding a domestic water-to-water heat exchanger, the Classic can also provide all of your hot water. You can then turn your water heater off and realize big savings on your electric or gas bill.
Efficiency Means More Heat From Less Wood.

The Classic outdoor wood furnace is the most efficient outdoor wood furnace, and has the lowest emissions. The Classic's energy efficient design maximizes the combustion and heat transfer process for better heat delivery. In other words, the Classic burns wood more completely and efficiently, and transfers more of the heat generated to your home. Current owners of the Classic report that they are using up to 25 to 50 percent less wood compared to traditional heating alternatives or other brands of outdoor wood furnaces. Indoor wood stoves can be less efficient because heated indoor air used for combustion is sent out the chimney, causing cold air to be drawn into the house to replace it.
It's Your Home. Why Not Enjoy It?

Your home is one of your biggest investments. It's where your family spends a considerable amount of time. And you spend a considerable amount of money making it comfortable and enjoyable. Firewood can be dirty, moldy and riddled with insects which can create a mess in your home. Burning wood indoors means smoke, ashes, odors, and an eventual buildup of soot on walls and ceilings. With the Classic, you avoid all of these problems because you don't have to bring firewood inside, and all burning takes place remotely, up to 500 feet away. Many Classic customers have also noticed that eliminating indoor burning has helped alleviate respiratory and allergy problems caused by exposure to moldy firewood, smoke, and ashes.
Burn Wood, Not Your Spare Time.

Continuous stoking of wood is a necessary part of fireplace and wood stove use. If you don't have the time or energy to continually babysit these heat sources, the Classic is your low-maintenance alternative. It burns larger pieces of wood -- up to 30 inches in diameter and 72 inches in length -- and there's no splitting, which dramatically reduces the time spent preparing the wood. The Classic also operates efficiently using seasoned or unseasoned wood. The large firebox door is designed for easy loading of wood and removal of ash. There's no costly chimney cleaning or upkeep, and other maintenance is simple, requiring only minutes to perform.
Tests show the Classic is the most efficient outdoor wood furnace, with the fewest emissions. You can view the results of those comprehensive tests on the Efficiency Tests page.
