icon Water Stove

I have come across a neat deal down in Mt. Airy, NC - Hicks Water Stoves. I saw one in operation near a property we were researching. This fellow has a 4000 sq. ft. home heated with baseboard radiators, piped in from a woodshed about 150 feet from the house. In the winter time, a couple of big logs (14-15in diameter) in the morning and evening keeps the house heated. You have to have a hardwood supply for this. This operates via an insulated rectangular solid with a firebox and horizontal flue tubes going through the water chamber to a chimney vertical with clean outs. It keeps about 700 gal of water at 180 degrees. There are different sizes available. The heat exchanger can give hot water for household as well.
