DescriptionTrust Wood-furnaces.net when looking for a new Multi-Fuel Furnace, such as the US Stove 8500 Multi-fuel Furnace. The 8500 Multi-Fuel Furnace is a great alternative to standard gas furnaces. It is designed to heat an area using various different types of fuel. The US stove 8500 can be used in conjunction with a standard HVAC system. It can be installed so that it uses the existing ductwork in your home so that warm air flows to every room of the house, rather than solely heating the area immediately surrounding the furnace, as is the case with many other wood stoves.
The US stove 8500 is manufactured by the United States Stove Company. It does not come with all of the materials that are required for installation. Standard installation materials include, but are not limited to a floor protector, thimble, radiation shield, chimney connector, flu, heat duct, and return air duct. This furnace is equipped with twin blowers, which produce a significant amount of air flow. The US stove 8500 has a solid, sturdy construction with cast iron grates, doors, and liners that are extra heavy duty. The large ash pan and large capacity hopper are designed to allow this furnace to work for extended periods of time between cleaning and refueling. It also has a side outlet vent for convenient installation and use.
To use the US stove 8500 in your home, begin by making sure that it has been properly installed using well-fitting attachments. Make sure that there are no gaps or leaks where the heat or byproducts of combustion might escape. Take time to read the owners manual so that you are familiar with the unit and are comfortable with the controls and procedures. Before running this furnace, fill the hopper with your fuel of choice. Because it is designed to accept many different types of fuel, you might consider using pellets, corn, or other things, as specified in the owners manual. The digital display allows you to know exactly how you are setting the furnace so that you have ultimate control over the temperature in your home.
Clean and maintain this furnace regularly. When the ash pan is full, safely dispose of the ashes. Also, do a visual inspection of the 8500 at least once every year to ensure that there has not been damage or other problems that might inhibit its proper working.
