In Reply to: OT external wood heater posted by Britcheflee on September 24, 2012 at 22:26:45:

Over my 50 years of heating a farm house, exposed to a predominate Northwest wind in SW Michigan, is smoke and safety and the need for a protected and properly placed on a 2 story farmhouse, outside chimily which eventualy was solved by an outdoor furnace, with a class "A" chimily (double wall, stainless. with 1 inch insulation material). I like the outdoor furnace and the ability to keep active cutting diseased trees (Dutch elm, red elm "Yellows" and now white ash "emerald ash borer") and twice a day feeding, but at 75 may have to eventually buy cut wood and quit this recreation.
the outdoor furnace is now about 10 years old, 100 feet from the house, near an old "granary for wood storage. feed with hot water to a "heat exchanger" in the plenum of the supplemental "fuel oil" hot air furnace, and has probably paid for the high initial furnace cost.
The water jacket is "mild steel" and if the water is properly tested for "Ph" and "nitrates" and treated with "corrision inhibitors", the water jacket should last a long life.
My other neighbors, use a bigger furnace and heat the farm shop and hot water heater, beside heating the house, but added a "forced air fan" to supplement the "normal draft".
More fuel cost saving was accomplished by addequately insulating the house and double pane replacement windows. I now need about 12 to 15 face cord of wood, with firewood delivered costing $ 50. a "rick".
