How much does
Chief Wood/Coal Burning Furnace
We will need to know the square feet of your home, what the current BTU rating is of your gas furnace (if applicable) and what type of flue system you have in order to determine which size furnace and flue system you need.
Can be installed as a stand-alone unit or alongside a forced-air gas furnace using the same ductwork to distribute heat.
Fire Chief Features
-Domestic Hot Water Coils connect to your hot water heater and save energy costs by pre-heating the water. A Temperature valve is recommended to keep water below 130°. May not heat all the time - this is for supplemental heating only.
-12" Round Back Draft Damper closes off the furnace in the summer months when not is use to keep creosote odors from entering the air conditioning duct work. Also required for use with a gas furnace.
We install Fire Chief furnaces in the Kansas City area.
Please call for an appointment with a technician to evaluate your chimney and
check for clearance and liner requirements.
For existing masonry chimney: A 6" - 8" diameter stainless steel chimney liner is required for the furnace, depending on the unit size. Do not install directly into a clay tile liner because the risk of chimney fire is greater with a tile liner and the size is usually too large for the furnace to draft correctly. Excessive flammable creosote will result in a flue that is too large! We use HomeSaver brand U.L. listed liners with a lifetime warranty. Sometimes the old tile liner must be removed to make room for the new liner. THIS IS NOT A DIY PROJECT! You'll need a professional chimney technician to do the installation.
For no existing chimney: Use CLASS A type (such as SuperPro) chimney pipe only. THIS IS NOT A DIY PROJECT! You'll need a professional chimney technician to do the installation.
In the K.C. area: We will be glad to take measurements and give you an estimate for installation of the furnace and flue liner or Class A Chimney in the Kansas City area.
