Sizing
It is important to choose a solid-fuel heating appliance that is correctly sized for your home. An undersized solid-fuel furnace will need to be fired more often, while an oversized solid-fuel furnace will be less efficient and could contribute to dangerous creosote buildup.

The estimated heating capacities of ENERGY KING Wood/Coal Furnaces are:

  • up to 1,500 square feet (model 365EK)
  • up to 2,000 square feet (model 385EK)
  • up to 2,500 square feet (model 480EK)

In addition to square footage, some of the factors that may affect your heating needs are your home’s age, design, and geographic location (climate). Other factors to consider are your chimney’s draft strength and whether you plan to burn wood or coal as your primary fuel source. A general rule-of-thumb is to choose a solid-fuel furnace that has a similar BTU output to your current (conventional) furnace.

Sizing
It is important to choose a solid-fuel heating appliance that is correctly sized for your home. A slightly undersized solid-fuel furnace will generally require short, hot fires which burn cleaner and more efficiently than the slow-burning or smoldering fires generated in an oversized wood/coal furnace. Additionally, slow-burning or smoldering fires could contribute to dangerous creosote buildup.

The estimated heating capacity of ENERGY KING Wood Furnaces are:

  • up to 1,500 square feet (model 365EK)
  • up to 2,000 square feet (model 385EK)
  • up to 2,500 square feet (model 480EK)

CADDY – E.P.A. Wood or Combination Furnace (oil and/or electric) or Add-on Furnace

CADDY - E.P.A. Wood or Combination Furnace (oil and/or electric) or Add-on FurnaceThe Cadillac of furnaces!

The Caddy furnace comes with the same dimensions and basic features as its cousin, the PSG 3000. But its highly advanced combustion technology sets it apart from all others. The Caddy is specifically designed to meet the highest combustion standards in North America today, those of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

As such, it is one of the cleanest and most efficient furnaces ever produced by PSG, with savings in heating wood of up to 30% and reductions in particles emissions reaching 90%. One look at the fire through the glass door of the Caddy and you’ll see why!

A Unique heat exchanger system

The Caddy provides exceptional efficiency because of its unique heat exchanger system. The cylinder-shaped smoke ducts inside the furnace serve as its heat exchangers and ensure rapid heat transfer because of their ideal diameter and thickness.

Hot gases wind their way around the C-cast baffle in the combustion chamber and then into the exchangers above it before reaching the main smoke pipe.

The heat, which normally dissipates directly into the chimney, instead circulates inside the furnace.

The furnace’s powerful fan then extracts and pushes all this heat into your heating ducts in uniform fashion throughout the house.

Carefree cleaning

Forget the complicated cleaning that requires you to disconnect and move your furnace! The Caddy has a fully accessible trap door right in front of the furnace, from where you can directly clean the heat exchangers and smoke pipe. All you have to do is brush the combustion residue into the combustion chamber and then collect it using the ash drawer.

EPA Add-on wood furnace

If you already have a forced air central heating system that uses oil, gas, or electricity and you want the flexibility of using wood with it, the PSG EPA Add-on Caddy furnace is the ideal choice. This unit, which can be installed on the left or right side of your existing system, shares the existing furnace?s controls and fan, giving you a fully harmonized wood/oil, wood/gas, or wood/electric combination system.

Max Caddy – Wood or Combination Furnace (oil and/or electric)

Max Caddy - Wood or Combination Furnace (oil and/or electric)The Max Caddy is the first furnace in the world which can be installed as a wood-oil-electric trio. It is an extra large, ingenious, clean-burning wood furnace.

As opposed to all conventional wood furnaces, the Max Caddy uses a PC board that allows the user to connect all four blower speeds. In other words, it is an intelligent furnace. With the logic built into our PC board, the furnace automatically selects the most appropriate blower speed in order to maintain the furnace’s plenum temperature at its best efficiency point.

This allows the homeowner to obtain heat even at the tail end of the combustion cycle because the furnace has the flexibility to run with the lowest blower speed available.

This would simply not be possible with a conventional wood furnace because it must be configured to operate with one single blower speed.

That speed is normally too powerful for low burn cycles because it cools off the unit’s firebox too much.

This exclusive Max Caddy feature not only results in better comfort, but it also extends the unit’s cycling intervals, leading to substantial fuel economies.

The Max Caddy has been designed using the latest CSA B415.1 Standard, the most advanced standard for testing emissions and efficiency of solid-fuel central heating systems.

The Max Caddy boasts an 85% (LHV) efficiency and average emissions of 0.316 g/MJ. The Max Caddy can be installed as a wood-only unit, a wood-electric combo, a wood-oil combo, or a wood-oil-electric trio ! Furthermore, this environmentally friendly furnace is designed to allow the installation of an electric element or an oil burner on both sides of the furnace, making the installation and maintenance more flexible.

Other options such as a hot water loop kit for pre-heating domestic water, a fresh air intake adapter, and a top cold air plenum kit make it one of the most versatile and ingenuous central heating systems on the market.
