An outdoor wood boiler---also known as outdoor wood gasification furnace, outdoor hydronic heater, or outdoor wood furnace---could effectively improve indoor home or office environment. This furnace could skip the usually time-consuming and nerve-wracking chore of tending traditional wooden stove.
Indoor wood stove had been popular in the past. As years passed, users complained about many setbacks such furnace brings about. As an alternative, outdoor wood boiler easily gained popularity. It eliminates the common problems brought about by indoor burning.
High costs of conventional heating fuels and energy are constant setbacks that come with boilers. This would not be a problem if you would opt for an outdoor wood boiler. More households and offices are switching to such an efficient boiler system. Renewable energy use is strongly advocated these days. A wood boiler is logically safe and economical. It is designed to function at smaller costs, while at the same time it is simple and quick to install.
Outdoor wood boilers are logically designed to be used or placed outside the home or office. It could be sheltered or non-sheltered. A sheltered outdoor boiler is logically enclosed within a solidly and firmly constructed weatherproof steel-framed building. The furnace could be located outdoor, connected to insulated power and water lines. Thus, you may opt to place it far (or non-adjacent) from the home structure.
A non-sheltered outdoor boiler could be less costly to install. However, it should be placed within the building or within a separate complex. It does not come with its own frame or shelter, hence the name. outdoor wood boiler. As such, it could be more complicated; it could be harder to install. Whether sheltered or non-sheltered, outdoor wood boilers would be ideal. Fire, soot, smoke, and wood chips would remain outside the home or office.
How does it work? A water jacket surrounding a firebox is heated. Water is then used for transferring heat to a heating system through a heat exchanger. A circulating pump would move hot water from the boiler through an insulated tube. It would in turn be connected to a thermostatically controlled water distribution system located indoor. The tube could be buried beneath the ground or could be hidden for aesthetic and safety reasons.
As the firebox is heated, smoke gas would be produced and released through an exhaust. This is where usual setbacks involving the outdoor wood boilers happen. If not properly operated, that exhaust gas produced could be thick and black. Resulting ash may not be fully rendered. In many markets, such boilers are regulated due to this problem. Many models are modernized to prevent and curtail this setback.
Needless to say, an outdoor wood boiler would be most recommended to households or offices located in rural or suburban settings. It would be best if you have your very own source of wood. You may even buy cheap wood chips to operate the furnace. Overall, this makes this type of boiler very economical. The furnace could also be used in urban centers, although there are specific models or products that are more ideal for such settings.
