Outdoor Wood Boiler Benefits Outdoor Wood Boiler Benefits
An outdoor wood boiler (OWB) has grown to become a very popular item in many United States households. These types of boilers tend to be self contained and are usually made out of metal siding. They are connected to the building and supply heat through underground water piping. The water piping is usually insulated. Below are a few benefits to an outdoor wood boiler.
Benefit 1 - Large Fueling Chambers
Unlike other wood stoves, a wood boiler is designed with ample room for firewood. This is great for the homeowner who does not have the time to constantly refuel the boiler with additional wood.
Benefit 2 - Lower Insurance Costs
Instead of having an indoor wood burning fireplace, your source of burned wood remains outdoors and insurance companies generally will provide you with lower homeowner insurance rates.
Benefit 3 - Lower Costs
This type of boiler will cost you less, overall as compared to other types of heating systems and sources for the home. With a little time and muscle, you can have yourself a nice stack of wood, ready to fuel your wood boiler.
Benefit 4 - Reduce Carbon Gases
If you are looking to go 'green'; try installing a wood boiler as your home heating source. You no longer need to use the fossil fuels to burn and supply you with heat.
