With the escalating prices of home heating in recent years, many people have begun to make use of a combination wood and oil furnace. This type of furnace gives the homeowner flexibility in what they heat their home with during the cold winter months.
Wood furnaces can be installed to work in conjunction with systems using other fuels such as oil, natural gas and electricity. Combination wood-oil furnaces can use both energy sources in a single packaged unit. Add-on furnaces can be installed beside existing furnaces using other fuels. All such units must be safety tested and certified for this purpose.
