A safety heat dump is necessary when a conventional up-flow furnace attaches to ductwork that pushes heated air under the floor through ducts, such as homes without basements. This is what the heating industry refers to as counter-flow. All wood/coal fuel furnaces, including Yukon wood furnaces, must allow heated air to flow upwards from the furnace through ducts and into the home in the event of an electric power or furnace fan failure. Our heat dump has a temperature control device that allows the power failure register to open into the furnace room if the temperature in the furnace plenum becomes excessively hot.
We invite you to view our whole variety of Yukon wood furnaces and accessories at Wood Furnaces today.
