CAN I HEAT MORE THAN ONE BUILDING?Yes! You can heat up to 4 different buildings with one furnace. The universal grain boiler will effectively heat your hot water heater, hot tub and swimming pool!
CAN I USE YOUR FURNACE WITH MY FORCED AIR SYSTEM?Yes! By installing a coil in your duct work you can use it with your forced air system. The fan from your present furnace kicks on and the coil superheats the air then passes through you duct work. Just like an A/C coil but with hot water. You can also heat your pool, hot tub and domestic hot water heater.
DO I NEED TO USE ANTIFREEZE?No! Not if you hook it up to your current furnace or boiler. Your current furnace will know when the outside furnace is out of wood and the gas will automatically come on to help the outdoor wood furnace from freezing. Also the pump will stay on and circulate the water.
WILL THIS WORK WITH IN-FLOOR HEAT?Yes! In-floor heat is very nice and the universal grain works with all in-floor heat systems.
HOW MUCH CORN WILL I USE?That is a difficult question, but if you burn CORN 1-2 bushells per day would be common for a 1500- 3000 sq ft home.

Also remember that you are heating your house and domestic hot water 24/7 for the entire heating season.
CAN MY KIDS GET BURNED BY TOUCHING THE STOVE?the door is hot and should not be touched All universal grain stoves are fully insulated . Snow will sit on the roof as well. There is a lock option for the door if you have any concerns.
Facts to KnowWarranty is Important!
All outdoor wood furnaces work when they are new. The difference between a good furnace and a bad furnace is the warranty. Most warrantees do not cover rust or if they do it is only for 5 years. Various warrantees will only cover manufacturer defects, meaning that only the welds are covered. They didn’t buy the metal in the furnace so they didn’t “manufacture” it. A number of manufacturers will only pay to replace the bad part they will not pay for labor or shipping of it. This could mean major expense to get a certified welder to your house. Other manufacturers require you to bring your 1600-2000 lb stove to their company for repair. Shipping could cost you hundreds of dollars. Most 25-30 year warrantees only cover the door and others only cover workmanship defects again a bad warranty
