Operating a Furnace
- Can I burn green wood?
Green wood has more moisture than seasoned wood. The more moisture in the wood the more water the furnace must work to eliminate. The water accumulates on the walls of the furnace which allow creosote to build up quickly in the furnace.
- If I don't use chemicals in the furnace water, what happens?
The water treatment coats the inside of your system and helps to slow down the development of rust and corrosion in your system.
- Can I burn coal in my OutdoorBoiler.com?
Just as you wouldn't fill your gasoline-powered vehicle with diesel fuel, you should not burn a fuel that is not recommended for your Outdoor Wood Stove. Burning coal can damage your furnace and will void your warranty.
Because coal burns hotter than wood, burning coal in a legacy furnace can damage the bottom of the firebox. Burning coal in an Afterburner furnace will ruin the catalyst resulting in reduced operation or failure.
- Why should I use seasoned wood?
The better the wood is seasoned the less moisture content it has. The higher the moisture content the lower the amount of BTU available for heat. You will use more wood, need to fill the furnace more often, and have to clean the furnace more frequently.
- Should I use Antifreeze in my furnace?
You may use antifreeze, you would follow the recommendations of the manufacturer for the ratio. Antifreeze reduces efficiency.
