300HE
« on: December 21, 2011, 01:49:09 AM »

I have been running this unit for about a month now and I am loving it. Anyone else running a Tennessee Outdoor Furnace?

I have a 300 that has been in service with me for 1 year now. Mine is not a HE model as I purchased mine a short time before the HE model was introduced. I am very happy with mine so far,but my curiosity always has me wondering how one brand stacks up against the other.
  I live 30 miles from where they are built so that is comforting if I were to encounter any issues

I'm glad to have found this site as it's always interesting to hear from different people and their experiences with their OWF. After owning this OWF for 1 year I'm not sure if I could think of any improvements to this furnace other than I think it may? Let just a little more air in than preferred during the time that the forced air has cycled out.
 I don't have any experience with any other brands so I do feel a little ignorant when trying to compare this brand to any other.

Why do you think you are getting too much air during idle. Are you burning alot of wood or just seeing alot of smoke or flames during idle? I am not experiencing this with my 300HE model.

I'm not really sure what constitutes a lot of smoke,but I do see what I think is excessive.I've got a friend with the same model and I'll have to make a trip by there soon to compare.
 I'm heating approx 4500 sq ft and I am still cleaning up downed trees on the farm which includes about anything not rotted,tulip poplar,maple,oak,and hickory mostly. With that in mind there are times when it seems like a lot of wood is consumed,but I know that some of this wood falls on the low end of BTU output

When my stove is at idle I see a very slow rising white smoke. Reminds me of traiin smoke, though I've never really been around any trains. What kind of burn time are you getting out of your furnace? I am getting around 14 hours with low temps aruund 20 degrees. That is filling the furnace 3/4 full.

White smoke = wet wood

Or.

Wet wood = white smoke

But if the stove is off, you shouldn't see any smoke if it shuts down properly, if they shut off you should have to stand right by the stack to see a lil wisp of smoke come out from time to time
