There is No Heating Need or Problem that GTRE and Hawken Energy Cannot Solve.
In summary, wood is burned in a firebox that is completely surrounded by a chamber of water. Heating the water to 180F. Once the water is heated to 180 degrees F, a blower fan that is feeding air to the fire is automatically turned off and the damper is closed. This starves the fire of oxygen and saves wood. Fortunately, wood is a natural, renewable, carbon nuetral fuel that has been used since the beginning of time. Without oxygen, the wood will smolder until the water drops to 160 degrees at that temperature, the blower fan automatically turns on again. Therefore, the water in the water jacket is constantly maintained between 160F and 180F without any effort on your part. All you do is add wood when needed; many homes only once a day.The heated water is continuously pumped through well-insulated pipes which are buried about 2 feet deep between the outdoor furnace and your home or building 24 hours per day. The heat from the water is exchanged via your forced air system or passive system, and then back to the wood furnace.
Hawken Energy is Green Energy
An outdoor wood furnace is a great addition to a home with a renewable energy system. Heating with conventional sources can keep you warm, but they also drain your finances- and they are only going to continue getting more and more costly. If you have ample wooded land you can heat your home for free with your dead-fall. Wood is a safe, renewable, carbon-nuetral fuel that has been used since the beginning of recorded history. Hawken Energy is a clean air advocate. More people are realizing the benefits of outdoor wood burning furnaces as a safe, cost-effective and environmentally responsible alternative for home and business heating. Hawken Energy is committed to being a good neighbor, and therefore continues to set the standard in the industry by providing low-emission products.
