The Benefits Of Solid Fuel Furnaces
Solid fuel furnaces are simply furnaces that burn wood or coal to create heat and warm your home. These furnaces can be used in conjunction with an existing furnace to increase the warmth in your home, or can be used on their own to produce heat in a manner that is energy efficient. Wood is a renewable energy source, so using a wood burning furnace helps lessens your family's total energy consumption and can also help to save you money on your utility bills.
For a coal-burning furnace, a shaker grate is a necessity. The shaker grate 40257 allows the furnace user to shake the ashes from the furnace without having to open the ash door. This helps to prevent accidental burns when cleaning and working on your furnace.
