It's good to hear you are happy with your new stove.  Good luck with it for the rest of the heating season.

3x as efficient as a shaver or just holds that much more wood?

You guys ever sit and wonder what everyone's "handle" stands for?  That being said...welcome to the site and I'm just wondering, and I'm NOT knocking the ACME furnace, but I looked at their website and for the life of me, if it weren't for the name, it looks the same as my Shaver.  Hopefully the ACME people are more customer friendly AFTER the sale than Shaver is, but a I said, their furnaces don't look any different than my Pro series 250.

Now about that handle....you drive a Toyota?

Several manufacturers of OWB's are selling units that appear to be Shaver clones.  Maybe they're on to something?

No, it's one of the least efficient designs on the market

Spoke with you awhile back about your new furnace, still interested in one but looked at one yesterday and they look real "homemade" like. The chimney was only welded on the top side, grates looked like they wouldnt last all that long. Its just hard to buy somthing that expensive when there is no input on them, and with 4 family member's pushing me to get a hardy like they have. I want to be the black sheep but i still leary. My uncle's father in law has had the same hardy for 24 years with only replacing the components in the back and the grates twice. I hate making big decisions. Anyhow, how is your acme working for you?

Welcome to the site slosh, don't know where you are from but I hear a dealer in southern Indiana has some Hardy H4's for $5100. May be worth the drive.

Guy wanted 6500 for the H4. Seems steep for "discounted". Glad to hear you like the acme so far. I am just leary about new companys, like what if they only stay around for a couple of years? Guess since there steel you could always repair them your self.

This is their warranty that i had to google to find it wasnt on their web page, maybe i just couldnt find it. To me a good warranty would either make or break the deal for me. What do you guys think of their's?




LIFETIME LIMITED WARRANTY

Year 100% On-Site Warranty!
Plus, a Lifetime and 40 Year Warranty on roof and siding!

We have a 5 Year On-Site warranty against leaks on the furnace – NOT prorated.

We also have a 20 Year warranty against leaks on the furnace – Parts and Labor.

Electrical components such as the fan, thermostat and pump and the door and grates have a
one-year manufacturer’s warranty.

We don’t have ship the furnace back to us, like some companies demand. Instead, we send a
professional repairman to perform on-site repairs.

a) Years 6 – 20 on the life of your furnace are prorated as follows:
b) Year 6 - 90%
c) Year 7 - 80%
We will give you the percentage discount
d) Year 8 - 70%
on the repair or off a replacement
boiler.
e) Year 9 - 60%
The furnace will be repaired
or replaced,
f) Year 10 - 50%
whichever is less
expensive.
g) Year 11 - 40%
Shipping not
included.
h) Year 12 - 14 - 30%
No cash or
surrender value.
i) Year 15 - 20 - 20%
j) Year 21 to forever - 10%

The cost of the service call is not covered after 5 years.

The life of your furnace depends upon proper maintenance. With proper maintenance, your
furnace can give you 25 – 30 plus years of dependable service.

You MUST test your water annually and retain results for possible review by ACME Furnace
Company (upon request) to support warranty claims, in some instances.

Water samples must be submitted to a professional water testing lab. If there is not a water
testing lab near your home, a “Water Sample Analysis Kit” can be purchased for your
convenience. Recommended source:

Pretty much the same warranty as every other brand. Lifetime part is just a gimmick.
