Cost-effective, versatile heating
You'll realize big savings with your HEATMOR™ furnace, which is designed to work as easily with existing heating systems as with new construction. The more heating needs you have, the greater the savings, because a HEATMOR™ system can add warmth to your life inside and out.
EASY TO OPERATE
Your HEATMOR™ furnace operates on a simple principle; burning wood in the furnace heats water that is pumped underground to your home and/or other buildings. Therefore, it can be connected to your hot water heater, furnace, or heat exchanger to provide steady, comfortable, and efficient heating.
Heat your garage with a unit heater or an in-floor hydronic system or a combination of the two. The advantage of the in-floor heating system is that you will have a dry, warm floor. Think of the comfort of working on a warm floor and the ease of thawing out frozen vehicles. Not to mention that wet slippery floors will dry very quickly.
POOL OR SPA
Since the HEATMOR™ uses a forced draft air induction system it is ideal for use in the summer for low heat load uses such as a pool or spa. Simply install a water to water heat exchanger to the pool or spa circulation/filtration system and an aqaustat to monitor the water temperature and you will have constant, even water temperature.
For this application, a combination of unit heaters and hydronic in-floor heat are installed. This combination will keep the air as well as the soil at a constant temperature. The air and soil temperatures are individually monitored and maintained for optimum growing conditions.
Forced Air Heating (Diagram A)
If you presently heat with a Forced Air System, you would install a water-to-air heat exchanger in the ductwork directly above your existing furnace. Hot water constantly circulates through the exchanger. The blower, controlled by a thermostat, blows air across the heat exchanger coil and transfers the heat through the house. A more even heat is provided with this system. Your existing furnace can stay in place as back-up.
Radiant Floor Heating (Diagram B)
To install an Radiant Floor heating system, hot water pipes are placed in the floor at the time the slab is poured, water circulates through the tubing and heats the concrete, which radiates and heats the building. Valves are used to control water flow in each loop - manual control valves are used between manifolds for temperature control, and electric zone valves are used for more even heat. Thermostats are used to individually control the heat in any part of the building. For additional information on Radiant Floor Heating, please visit www.ipex.com and www.kitec.com.
Hot Water Baseboard
For a Hot Water Baseboard system, the baseboards (resembling electric baseboard heaters) are installed around the perimeter of the building. Individual room temperature is con-trolled by zone valves and thermostats.
Existing Boiler System
The Heatmor can be hooked directly into an existing boiler. A constant flow of hot water is maintained through the use of a circulating pump. The zone valves, existing pump, and baseboard radiation transfer the heat through the house. The old system can then remain as back-up.
DOMESTIC HOT WATER
You can heat your domestic water 2 simple ways.
The domestic coil provides a method of heating water indirectly through water-to-water convection. This method of heating needs to be planned from the initial stages of purchasing your Heatmor™ Stainless Steel Outdoor Furnace. By ordering a domestic coil when purchasing your furnace, the unit will be specially manufactured with a hole at the back of the furnace to accommodate it.
The Side-Arm would be located inside your home mounted externally to your existing hot water heater. Through thermo-siphoning, you will be provided adequate hot water for your needs. This option can be added at any time by speaking to your local Authorized Heatmor™ Dealer
WORKSHOP OR FARMSHOP
Heat your farm shop or workshop with a unit heater or an in-floor hydronic system or a combination of the two. The advantage of the in-floor heating system is that you will have a dry, warm floor. Think of the comfort of working on a warm floor and the ease of thawing out frozen vehicles. Not to mention that wet slippery floors will dry very quickly.
A hydronic system installed in your sidewalk or driveway will help clear ice and snow. A simple water to water heat exchanger may be required to isolate the non-freezing solution from the furnace water.
INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS / CHICKEN OR PIG BARNS / INFLOOR HEATING
Heat your barn with a unit heater or an in-floor hydronic system or a combination of the two. The advantage of the in-floor heating system is that you will have a dry, warm floor.
