How our outdoor stove works
The EZBoiler outdoor furnace is a natural draft system. It burns organic fuel and heats the water that is in the water jacket. The furnace water jacket completely surrounds the firebox. Water is pumped through an insulated line that is buried in the ground and attaches to an indoor furnace coil that is mounted in the duct work of your home. When your home calls for heat, only the furnace blower turns on, forcing air through the furnace coil and heating your house with the energy created in your outdoor wood stove.
Another advantage of this kind of system is that the water is constantly recirculated from the boiler to your house and back again. Therefore, when your thermostat calls for the fan to kick on, there is no wait time for the heat exchanger to reach the proper temperature. The heat energy is always ready and available to be distributed throughout your home.
It is also a much more gentle heat cycle than with a conventional indoor furnace. You don’t get that initial blast of very hot air when the blower first turns on, and you no longer have to put up with that uncomfortable period of cold air blowing out of your registers at the end of the heating cycle, when the heat exchanger is cooling down.
Of course, the most important reason to choose an outdoor furnace over an indoor stove is the safety factor. With the fire such a safe distance away, you’ll never have to worry about a house fire, or even a ruined carpet from a stray ember. And any dirt and bugs in your firewood stay outside where they belong.
The aquastat operates like your home thermostat. It monitors the temperature of the water in the stove’s water jacket. When the water temperature falls below its set point, the aquastat sends a signal to the solenoid controlling the damper. The damper then opens to allow fresh air to enter the firebox, making the fire burn hotter, and raising the water temperature back up. Once the water has heated sufficiently, the aquastat closes the damper to slow down the burn rate.
This design keeps moving parts to a minimum, ensuring a long stove life. If they ever need to be replaced, the process is a simple do-it-yourself operation, without the added cost of paying a repairman for his time.
