Installing An Indoor Wood Furnace For Maximum Energy Efficiency
The Thermo Control 400 Wood Furnace is an innovative way to heat your home on the very coldest days of winter. This small, convenient indoor wood furnace actually connects to your existing oil or gas furnace, providing additional and complementary heat when needed.
Conveniently, the Thermo Control 400 Wood Furnace uses the same wall-mounted thermostat as your regular heating system, making it easy to control so that you are never too hot or too cold. Its a great compromise if you are not quite ready to make the commitment of switching entirely to wood heat, but you appreciate having the option in place as a backup. A steady supply of furnace wood can be time consuming and difficult to maintain, but the Thermo Control 400 lets you use as much or as little wood as you like throughout the cold weather months.
One of the primary benefits of the Thermo Control 400 Wood Furnace is the ease of hooking it up to your existing heating system. In general, owners may choose one of two options. In the first, the wood furnace makes use of your existing furnace blower to circulate the heat it generates throughout your home. The second option necessitates installing an additional blower pack to circulate warm air. In many cases, your existing furnace blower should be sufficient, and the additional blower pack is recommended only in instances where your existing furnace is old or if you plan to use wood for the majority of your heating needs.
With three different sized models, the Thermo Control series adapts perfectly to all different size living spaces. You can easily choose the one that best fits your budget, space requirements, and heating needs. The 400 series is a mid-sized model wood furnace. It is good for heating up to 1,700 square feet of living space. It stands just over three feet square, making it a convenient fit for the sometimes inconvenient spaces in your home.
Thermo-Controls warm air furnaces are designed for standalone usage or as an add-on to your existing oil or gas furnace. They are available in THREE sizes to match your heating needs. Use the thermostat on your wall to control the heat output of your Thermo-Control unit. Never again be too hot or too cold...
