How To Build An Outdoor Wood Boiler From Junk
How do outdoor wood boilers work in order to provide heat to your home? These furnaces use wood or coal in order to provide heat to your house or to any building it heats. They are situated far from your house, usually 30 to 250 feet away, and they pump heated water through pipes that are usually placed underground.
The pipes used are wrapped with insulating materials, thus keeping the water hot as it moves through them. Once the water passes through these pipes, it enters the traditional heating systems that are present in your house such as a radiant floor system or a forced air furnace. But in addition to heating your home, outdoor wood furnaces also heat the water that you use in your house.
See how to make one from junk for next to nothing. This is a great tutorial which could save you thousands and thousands of dollars over the years!
