The WoodMaster

Advantage

Now is the best time to switch your home heat to a

WoodMaster outdoor wood furnace. You’ll reduce your family’s energy costs, maximize effi ciency and rely less on traditional fuels.

WoodMaster furnace owners get more usable heat from more affordable, cleaner sources. Each WoodMaster wood furnace is specifi cally engineered to effi ciently heat your entire home or other spaces. You save money every time your WoodMaster kicks in. You also stay insulated from fl uctuating fuel oil, natural gas and other prices. And

WoodMaster dealers have no-hassle fi nancing available.

Freestanding, easy-to-operate WoodMaster furnaces work with most existing heat systems, including hot water, forced air, hydronic heat, radiant baseboard, existing water-to-water and in-fl oor. A WoodMaster furnace serves as a primary heat source or in conjunction with existing systems to warm homes of all sizes, garages, workshops, pools, whirlpools, spa areas and other spaces, plus hot water systems.

Your WoodMaster team will help you fi nd a furnace to save time, money and natural resources.

Research & Development

Proven performance, reliability and savings

Research & Development has been the foundation of

WoodMaster since we built our very fi rst furnace in 1989.

As the company expanded, R & D expanded. As the market changed, R & D stayed ahead of industry developments and consumer demands. Most recently, WoodMaster added 4,000 square feet and unifi ed R & D under one roof, accommodating prototype testing, full emission and delivered effi ciency testing, a large fabrication shop and offi ce space. We can now complete mechanical and electrical design, fabrication, insulating, plumbing, wiring, test fi ring and emissions testing in one location. Our R & D also now collaborates with European companies on emerging clean

How a WoodMaster furnace brings the heat to you

How it works

Each WoodMaster furnace is installed outdoors, from

25 - 400 feet from the home or structure(s) that it will heat. A core fi re box is surrounded by a water jacket.

The fi re warms water to its optimal heating temperature, maintained by automatic controls. The warm water moves through insulated underground piping into the home's heat exchangers and heating systems. Inside, you control the temperature with your thermostat.

The WoodMaster furnace also:

• Produces very little ash for reduced cleanup work

• Produces virtually no creosote, a major cause of chimney fi res

• Helps decrease U.S. dependence on imported oil

• Provides carbon-neutral heat, which doesn't contribute to increased greenhouse gases

Incomparable safety

WoodMaster furnaces operate so no fuels enter the house, which eliminates smoke and soot, fi re hazards, and reduces the risk of dangerous carbon monoxide buildup.

Dealer support advantage

Our dealers will help you fi nd the right WoodMaster model for your heating requirements, balancing WodMaster’s capabilities with your needs. All WoodMaster dealers carry a full line of parts and accessories and provide attentive, expert service at installation and throughout the life of each furnace-all to fi t your lifestyle!

Lower your heating costs for good

How low can your home heating costs go?

Heat your whole home for far less money than fuel oil, propane, natural gas and even off-peak electric rates with a WoodMaster outdoor wood furnace. You also keep control of your heating costs in your hands—and savings in your pocket.

Zero out your fuel costs

WoodMaster furnace owners who have scrap wood sources or cut their own wood can basically eliminate their “fuel” costs.

All owners dramatically cut their heating costs.

With HeatLink

®

go barefoot all year

Our HeatLink in-fl oor hydronic heat system delivers even heat from special tubing placed underneath fl oors in homes and businesses. HeatLink pumps warm water through the tubing to provide consistent warmth on tile, vinyl, wood, stone and other fl oor coverings.

Complementary comfort

HeatLink systems are often combined with PureLink™, a potable water distribution system that delivers consistently strong water pressure for cooking, bathing and laundry. It provides quiet (no water hammer noise) fl ow in any climate with equalized pressure without hot or cold surges.

HeatLink’s integrated StatLink temperature control system allows a thermostat in every room of the house, so owners may electronically set back the temperature in unoccupied rooms. StatLink’s zone control temperature control may be one room, a single level or other designations. The StatLink control system is the “brain” of all various room thermostats to maximize effi ciency and comfort.

Comfortable, effi cient savings

The #1 reason consumers choose

HeatLink is to maintain fl oor surface temperatures at no higher than 88 degrees F (31 degrees C), for yearround comfort.

HeatLink provides lower energy and operating costs with enhanced comfort and control. System projected energy use to heat 2,000 square feet:

Forced air: 99,000 Btu h (29kW)

Infrared: 66,000 Btu h (19 kW)

HeatLink: 33,000 Btu h (10 kW)

HeatLink is powered by a boiler or a special water heater—no furnace is needed, so there are no hot or cold spots and no noisy fans or radiator expansion noise. HeatLink delivers heat where it’s needed, with little waste. Control determines the system’s effi ciency. In your home, HeatLink allows fl exible furniture arrangements because there are no grills or radiators to dodge.

How it works

HeatLink PEX tubing is laid on the sub-fl oor and covered with a fl owable lightweight concrete. It can also be installed in the lower level concrete fl oor or underneath the joist space, which is called a ‘dry’ or ‘staple-up’ installation.

Parts for all

WoodMaster dealers carry complete lines of quality, affordable parts and accessories for most furnace brands, including new and existing heat systems, plus parts and accessories for HeatLink in-fl oor heat and complementary home comfort systems.

Our selection of hundreds of parts and accessories includes:

Ash Grate System

WoodMaster has developed an auger system for wood furnaces that makes clean out easier for owners. Augers and grates can also be easily removed for simple yearend maintenance.

HeatLink Manifold

The HeatLink TwistSeal Manifold is a twist-lock, o-ring sealed manifold. It gives installers the option to add or remove individual modules or loops as needed. Supply modules provide on/off manual control to isolate individual loops.

Return modules permit fl ow balancing and control to establish desired rate of fl ow for each individual loop. StatLink controls allow endless system control options. Optional actuators control individual or multiple loops with single or multiple thermostats.

Deluxe Manifold kits include water temp gauges, hose bib for fi lling systems, silicone lubricant, manual and auto air vents, connection gaskets and mounting brackets. These manifolds are simple to assemble and hook up, and offer a clean, professional look.

Thermofl ex-Time Saver

Corrugated polyethylene plastic is strong, lightweight and fl exible.

Specially designed to respond to the most intensive environments and climates, the PEX pipes are insulated with almost 5 inches of highquality, closed cell polyethylene foam that provides thermal performance and protects against water migration.

Water to Air Exchanger

Designed to perform at high-fl uid velocities with low-pressure drops. Made entirely of high-quality, specially treated stainless steel to ensure superior corrosion resistance and longer product life. Induced self-cleansing feature gives you one less thing to worry about.
