The Jetstream boiler, which was later sold under the Kerr and Tempest brand names, was one of the earliest clean burning residential Wood Central Heating systems. Invented by Prof. Hill at the university of Maine, this boiler burned clean using blowers and a high-temp firebox lined with refractory. The boiler was designed to charge large water storage tanks, which then would be used to heat the living space.
