It takes a lot of time and money to ramp up R&D, you can't build the knowledge and data you need in a few years. Ya gotta be proactive.Yeah, as a former Yukon owner I can say they were good units in their time...and I think had they started trying to up their game 20 years ago, instead of in 2015, things would have turned out differently. Much easier to take personal responsibility and quit smoking now, than to find yourself 20 years later laying in the hospital hooked up to oxygen while still blaming the cig manufacturers...(evil EPA)
They died because they didn't even try. Plenty of other small companies did just fine.They died because they couldn't get a model certified for the new wood burning regulations. They were a small operation and it was a costly time consuming process. https://www.epa.gov/residential-woo...y-requirements-wood-fired-forced-air-furnaces
Agreed. ^^^^ If you are referring to indoor forced air furnaces only, a small operation proved it could be done. If I'm not mistaken they are the only company in the country to do so.
