SET UP
Your OZARK BIOMASS RENEWABLE ENERGY Outdoor Furnace should be set on a cement pad.
The area around your OZARK BIOMASS RENEWABLE ENERGY unit should be covered with noncombustible material (gravel, concrete, patio stones) at least one foot on either side and back and front.

While furnace is in use valve above pump should be opened, valve on return line should be
opened. The cold water fill up valve should be shut except while filling up furnace tank.

When side valves are opened and middle valve is shut your outside furnace will heat your
water. Reverse for water heater only.

FIRING DIRECTIONS
Start your fire just as you would for any other wood burner. Stack your wood at the front of the firebox, laying
it lengthwise in the firebox. See Figure 30.
When you go to add wood to your OZARK BIOMASS RENEWABLE ENERGY Furnace you should always
rake the coals to the front of the firebox and stack you wood at the front also.
The blower on the OZARK BIOMASS RENEWABLE ENERGY will make it easier to start your fire. Note:
When you first fire the furnace up the cold water in the tank will cause a tremendous amount of condensation
inside the firebox and flues. It should stop in a few hours.
After starting fire shut the fire box door turn fan switch on. If it is dark outside you can turn on your outside
light to assist you in loading.
BLEEDING THE SYSTEM
Turn off the ball valve on Heat Inlet and turn on the ball valve on Heat Outlet. If you have cut off
flanges on your pump, make sure that they are open. Take the pex pipe loose from Heat Inlet. Leave it loose
until you get a good flow of water, then turn on the pump. A steady flow with no gurgles, burps, or spruts
signals that no air is coming through the line. Cut off the pump, hook the pipe back up and open the ball valve.
If the coil is mounted at a point as high or higher than the water level in the heater, it may be necessary
to bleed the system in sections. Take the pex pipe loose from the outlet side of the pump and make sure that
you have water through the pump. Hook that pipe back up at the pump and go to the top (highest) outlet on the
coil and loosen that fitting. Turn on the pump and let it run until you stop getting air out of that fitting. Turn
off the pump and open the ball valve on Fitting (make sure that the pex pipe has been re-attached). You may
get some more air out of the top fitting on the coil at this point. When all air is out, tighten your fittings. The
system should now be bled.

INSTALLATION OF THERMOSTAT
The basic concept is to start your circulating pump and air handler simultaneously as there is not time
delay for heat strips to warm. Your existing thermostat may be utilized or an additional unit may be installed to
exclusively control your new OZARK BIOMASS RENEWABLE ENERGY Furnace.
Service Tip:
Ozark BioMass Renewable Energy Manufacturing recommends installing an electrical receptacle near
the wire controlling the circulating pump which is controlled by the thermostat. This will enable a service
technician to check the circulating pump without necessitating access to the thermostat.
If you have any questions please contact your Ozark BioMass Renewable Energy Dealer.

MAINTENANCE
8
W
G
Your Ozark BioMass Renewable Energy Furnace requires maintenance regularly to allow proper
performance and efficiency. Requirements include checking all flue pipes, ensuring there is no internal
creosote build up. When build up occurs, the scrapers and flue brush in you clean out kit will allow you to
remove the burnt materials from the flue pipes here also. Your Ozark BioMass Renewable Energy furnace
tank should be flushed annually and Ozark BioMass Renewable Energy Chemical replaced after the tank is
cleaned.
We recommend checking the pipes at least once a month and more often if the wood is of high sap
content.
After the first full year of operation you OZARK BIOMASS RENEWABLE ENERGY furnace should
be drained and inspected for sediment deposits. Ozark BioMass Renewable Energy Chemical should always
be used when refilling the tank after it has been drained. Flush with clean water to wash out all of the sediment
deposits. The furnace should be drained and flushed with clean water and the Ozark BioMass Renewable
Energy Chemical replaced every year or as needed. You will need to caulk around the base of the
condensation tank and flue once a year with high temperature caulk.
Cleaning Out Flues
1. To clean out open doors front and back.
2. The upper return flue will normally require the most attention because when wood is burned slowly, or
when the wood smoke is cooled sufficiently it produces tar and other organic vapors, which combine
with expelled moisture to form creosote. The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney
flue of a slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited
this creosote makes an extremely hot fire. If creosote has accumulated, it should be removed to reduce
the risk of chimney fire. The unit is not to be connected to a chimney flue serving another appliance.
IMPORTANT
It is important to keep the flues free of a creosote build up to avoid a creosote flue fire. Should a creosote flue
fire develop it is best to let the fire burn itself out. Even though the creosote fire is very undesirable because of
excessive smoke it is much safer to let the flue fire burn itself out. Do not open doors or remove flue covers
during a creosote fire because there is a danger of flames leaping out at the newly exposed opening causing
severe burns. Remember, the best way to handle a creosote flue fire is prevention. Inspect your flues once a
month and keep them clean.
ASH REMOVAL
You do not have to take the fire out of the unit to remove the ashes. Here are two ways this can be
accomplished.
1. The fire in you Ozark BioMass Renewable Energy furnace burns from front to back. If you like, you
may periodically remove ashes from the front of the firebox before you put wood in it.
2. When you put wood in your unit and the fire burned down to just a bed of coals, you can take your flatnosed shovel and rake the coals to one half of the firebox. Repeat this process for the other side of the
firebox.
***CAUTION***
Dispose of the ashes away from other combustible material. For safety, the ashes can be disposed of in a steel
container.

should be safe to touch, gloves are recommended when fueling. There is a shut off switch which should be shut off during fueling
and be sure to turn it back on after the door is shut. Children should never fire this unit. The flue on the back of the stove also gets
very hot when fired and will burn if touched and should be approached with caution. Ozark BioMass Renewable Energy Outdoor
