    Yeah the Yukon is no longer available here...supposedly they are working on a compliant model...been hearing that for a while now though. I have the wood/oil model...not terribly impressed, its actually coming out soon...want it? ;)
    The Napoleon doesn't have a great track record here on Hearth...doesn't seem to be many of them out there though, but for the ones that have reported in, feedback hasn't been great for the furnace or the company's customer service...kinda expensive too.

    Kewl, thanks. I was down there laying out the kuuma and considered it. I suppose that I can move the one that I have to make it work better. I will already be altering the ductwork to get it tied in.

    If you are considering a Kuuma, just be aware that they are usually backlogged building them...sometimes 6 months...and probably are right now for sure since their sale just ended (Friday, I think...maybe they would still do the sale price if you called tomorrow?)

    Kind of.
    My parents had a Continental CHMF150 installed at the end of 2016 to replace a 42 year old Newmac wood / oil.
    They also ditched oil completely and went with LP as the backup.

    https://continentalheatingandcooling.com/products/hybrid-chmf150-furnace/

    Napoleon and Continental are obviously in bed somehow. They look alike and even share the same model designations. And when you click on the red "product support" button to see documentation you go to the "mynapoleon" website.


    This device is heating a 1250sq' 1970's built bungalow. No real upgrades. Original windows and doors.
    My overall impression? It is awesome in every way.

    3.4cu' fire box takes a 24" split.
    Super easy to use. My mom is extremely comfortable using it.
    Their house is warmer and they burn way less wood.
    Thermostat / damper system works great.

    I insisted they go with the glass door option. The dealer advised against due to heat loss. I explained that yes you will lose some heat through the glass door but that heat will now do 2 things. Heat the living room and kitchen floors from below and also dry out your wood that is stacked in the furnace room. Heat is not wasted. Just used differently.

    Also, with tube technology it's nice to see what burn stage you are in without having to open the door.

    They burn mainly sugar maple with some red oak and beech mixed in. Wood is 20-24%mc. Clean glass and clean chimney cap.


    Feel free to ask any questions. I'll do my best to answer.

    Drew.

    How long of a burn do you get after loading it full.

    I still haven’t pulled the trigger yet, just have been too busy to get it done. My local chimney company has deals fire chief furnaces. Is there any opinion on those.
