    Sure they do. Theres furnace options as well as boiler. Heat exchanger is the main thing u need different if you go the boiler route. Also cant run storage temps effectively as low as some other options but it definatly works.

    That installation looks great! What is it about the Kuuma unit you liked better?

    More efficient and should burn much cleaner. To burn cleaner, the Kuuma still needs a minimum load of about 10,000 BTUs per hour.
    Our entire heating season, by eastern standards, is the shoulder season. Low demand and the Ardent can still function at 5,000 BTUs per hour if you keep its loads small. The Ardent's second advantage is simplicity with no computer to fail. There is no such thing as overnight mail or courier service in this corner of the world - 10 to 14 days is the norm.
