Hope it works better than the other ones. Oh well, I’ll never find out.
Who'd they pay off?
They also somehow met phase 1 and we all have seen how that turned out.
Here's the turd in all it's glory,
Here's the certification PDF.
I obviously don't fully understand the burn categories either. I was under the understanding the burn rate under these four burn categories had to fall within a certain range. Obviously not, as they didn't and still passed.
Yep. Pretty common for a lot of things in today's world. Doesn't work worth a damn in the real world but it meets the latest government regulations. So sad
Well, this award obviously means nothing...must just need to be part of the good ole boy network to get it...and grease a few palms.
Hope they don't try to market it as 10-12 hour burn times...they didn't even make 6.5 for the test.
God help the suckers that buy these things after how the last 2 years have turned out with them!
Reading this almost makes me sick...seeing how I painted my Kuuma bright red...I think I'm gonna pull the sheet metal off of it again this summer and change the color...it is offended at being the same color as a FC.
Lmao that is actually 25% of the rated btu output. So it burns right if you load it every two hours.
Well...since it "passed" I guess we can assume it didn't backfire and blow their exhaust system up?!
I quoted the word "passed", because if you read the test report, they had to request special testing circumstances because the FC1000 is too uncontrollable to be run on low for long, without either burning too hot, or going out, then smoking the place up...(my take on it)...read page 21, 22.
Here's their FB page.
Man, if I owned one of these POS, I'd be blowin up their FB...then file a report with the CPSC...for starters...
I made a couple comments and referenced a link to this site.
This is one company where it's obvious they place making $$$$ over public safety. I really wonder if anybody in the company, outside of the laborers, actually use one in their homes?
So after reading up on this VESTA award...it sounds a lot like the Emmy awards...a gathering of industry people sitting around patting each other on the back...read: good ole boy network
Too bad that so many regular people will think that these certificates and awards mean that they are actually the best.
Speaking of which, did Mrpelletburner send them a bouquet of flowers yet to apologize for his implied "impatience".
I hope soon he's going to stop accepting these bones they keep throwing his way. IMO, he's getting played.
Maybe we can start a Hearth GoFundMe to raise enough money to send all these furnaces from the numerous members back to them, but it scrap form.
From dust, to dust...
As Elmer Fudd once said to Bugs Bunny "I don't how ya's done it but I KNOW YA'S DONE IT!)"
Kinda along the same lines as this post
The second to last paragraph is telling...sounds like the HY-C saga will continue next winter...and the one after that...and...
I just threw up..........
For the record, they technically did NOT pass. They did not meet the BTU output requirement for the 4 distinct burn categories I have shown above. This requirement was actually for Phase 1 of the NSPS, so they shouldn't have even passed phase 1. So much for "standardized" testing in order to put everybody on an even playing field.
I added my thoughts to the comments section and sent an email to the person that published the post. I hope they approve my comments.
Got a kick out of the guy complaining about the 50% efficiency. That is delivered efficiency and not stack efficiency. Stack efficiency was around the 70% area, which is still low.
But we’re okay with 20% efficiency from automobiles...,, well sure since there is no alternative.
Fair apples to apples comparisons please. There are so many “efficiency” ratings that are crooked we are hardly able to compare.
