Bryan Furnace Update
One of the most popular products we've ever featured in FARM SHOW (Vol. 6, No. 1, 1982) is the Bryan outside furnace, a completely self-contained wood-burning furnace that goes outside the home and requires absolutely no home modification to install.
From inside, the Bryan furnace appears to be similar to a window type air conditioner. It warms air outside the house, then blows it into the home through a window mounted duct," explains Charles Cobos, president of Bryan Furnace Works. "Besides requiring no modification to your home, combustion is contained in a fire-proof unit outside the home. All ashes and fumes are outside. All that enters your living space is warm air."
The Bryan furnace takes up to 30 in. logs and will burn up to 10 hours with one fueling. The firebox has been beefed-up this year from 16 ga. steel to 10 ga. steel to handle the high-burning temperatures of coal and any other solid fuel.
"The furnace will function satisfactorily, even in a snowbank, as long as its air intake is kept clear," explains Cobos. "The unit can be placed in a garage or shed and heat blown to the house through an insulated underground duct. The heater will handle coal mixed with wood, or straight wood. Ashes need to be cleaned out once every 2 or 3 days.
Bryan Furnace Works offers models producing 60, 80 and 400 thousand btu's per hour. The largest model is designed primarily for poultry, hog and dairy barns.
The home-size 60,000 btu Bryan furnace sells for $1,075.
