    Does anyone here have an Energy King forced air furnace? If you do, how are they and would you buy it again?

    Thanks

    We had one. The only reason I ended up on the "boiler road" is because our house chimney was shot and I decided I'd go outdoors before spending money on a new chimney.

    They work quite well, though you wan't to be sure it's sized appropriately for your house. For example, you cant run a wood furnace full-bore and store the heat for later with a wood furnace like you can a wood boiler. So the spring/fall seasons will probably find you burning propane/oil........

    But, they are significantly cheaper. And, because they are not water jacketed, they tend not to get quite as much creosote buildup on the walls as a standard wood boiler, as the walls can get quite hot during the burn...... But then the damper closes and it goes back into smolder once the house is heated up.
