Heating with wood 2010.wmv

Took out the corn boiler and replaced it with an outdoor wood boiler unit HE-2100 unit from Hawken Energy. The stove is Michigan made! Got lots of dead wood in the fence rows, however, decided that would like to have a jump on wood supply so I ordered a semi load of wood from Whittaker Timber and Land Services (989) 872-3065. I purchased the wood boiler from Doug Vansickle (810) 376-4782 . So far I have been mixing green wood with seasoned. Mostly Oak and Ash. Been burning, with Outdoor temps near zero , about 12 qty of 8-10 inch x 31 inch long logs per day total. House is very toasty! We are using heat exchangers in a forced air furnace. Seems like house is warmer with less fan run time.
