Overall Good System

I purchased this wood burner to use as primary heat for my house. It has not yet got down below zero but I have seen some high 20 degree nights and just using this as my heat source I can keep a steady 75 degrees give or take. However, this is not my first stove and I will say you need to be very picky on the wood you burn in it in order to get good and long burns, and you need to burn large loads. My house is new built, 1600 sq feet, 2 story. Furnace is located in garage tied into my HVAC unit. House is very well insulated. So taken my experience and with using this as primarily my heat 24-7 I would rate it 4 stars. Heats good and close to great, have to keep up on great wood, takes up very little space and is easy to maintain.
Cons- door latch needs tightening every other day, not capable of using hot water coil adapter.
Happy with how it performs at this point, kinda nervous about teens or below zero temps, I think then I might have to have hvac help out some.I would recomend it to others, but if your like me I would go bigger next time.
Overall good not perfect, but good. Happy with what I got for what I paid. Very happy with this store.
Walmart can make a better door latch. Have to burn very high btu wood to get warmth in home above 70 degrees.
I would recommend this item to a friend.

Do you make this furnace in a down draft configuration?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 7, 2012
Unfortunately, this type of furnace is only sold in an updraft variety. It is primarily meant for use in tandem with forced air furnaces that use ceiling supplies.
By Ron from Madison, WI on February 12, 2013
I currently have a wood furnace configured for down draft to blow heated air into a crawlspace duct. Would there be any problem with placing the blowers and an air intake filter box on top or this furnace and the outlet at the bottom?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on February 12, 2013
In researching this model furnace, there does not appear to be any provision against reverse flowing the heated air. There is no communication between the combustion chamber and the circulated air. So, doing so will not affect performance of the furnace.
The trouble will be in fabricating a plenum box to support the blowers above the furnace and a box at the rear of the unit to direct heated air to the crawl space. No factory plenum boxes currently exist to support this type of installation. However, they can be field fabricated.
