Oil drip setup for wood furnace-- material questions

Postby greenery » Sat Sep 24, 2011 2:59 pm

I have a forced ari wood furnace. I woul like to convert it to a wvo drip setup after the fire is hot. My question is what type of line, nozzle etc do you guys use. I was not ure if copper would hold up or just use brake line until it rots out... what about the nozzle? Thanks Ryan

Are you concerned that the modification will void your fire insurance?

I think wood burning furnaces are the best solution for reducing the high cost of heating with oil or natural gas. All of the wood burning furnaces are not environmentally friendly but it reduce the heating costs for your home heating system. I just use wood for in my furnace for heating home.

Just keep in mind that any modifications to your furnace will void your fire insurance unless you get a written waiver from your insurance company, and it's very unlikely that they will do that.

This sort of modification might be OK for a garage heater, but are you willing to gamble with your family's safety and your insurance policy?

I'm not raining on anyone's parade. Consider all the risks and make an educated decision.
