Put money back into your pocket this winter and many winters to come by burning wood or coal as your primary fuel and have electric heat as a back up when you are away. This furnace boasts 53 square feet of heat exchanger surface. Keep your home toasty warm for just pennies a day!
Built to last
We use 10 gauge steel to on the firebox and 304 stainless steel for the secondary heat exchanger tubes. The firebox is lined with 2-inch thick, high-duty firebricks that protect the steel and retains the heat of the fire to keep it in the furnace for higher efficiency. Heavy cast wood grates are standard equipment on this furnace. Built heavy to last longer. You also have the choice of upgrading to an even heavier cast coal shaker grate if you choose to burn coal as a primary fuel.
Simple to use
When your thermostat calls for electric heat, only 5KW's come on at one time. After the first element comes on, the second one comes on 45 seconds later and the same with the thrid and forth elements. This design eliminates power surges that are ofter very expensive. When you are burning wood, simply switch over to the digital wood thermostat to automatically damper the fire and keep your home at the temperature you want.
Heat your entire home during power outages
That's right! The Yukon Electric has been Tested and is Listed by UL to heat strictly on gravity feed (without electicity). As long as your furnace is installed with all ducting going in an upflow manner and you have wood available to put into the firebox you can keep your whole house warm. No more worries about frozen pipes or leaving your home. Just add small amounts of wood to the firebox!
Burn wood or coal efficiently
The Yukon Electric furnace is built with our Patented - Afterburner Jet System - in the firebox. This "secondary combustion air" that is allowed into the firebox on top of the fire burns off the gases in the smoke. This feature gains 30 to 40% more BTU's off the solid fuel and lessens the emmisions of the furnace.
One Chimney Needed
The Yukon multi-fuel furnaces are the ONLY furnaces on the Market that are UL Listed to vent both liquid and solid fuel out the same chimney. We were the first and only company in the USA that has put our central fired furnaces to the rigorous testing of Underwriter's Laboratories to get this listing. All you need is one All-Fuel, High-Temperature chimney to vent your Yukon Electric!
Made in the USA
The Yukon Electric is made of American Steel in Palisade Minnesota. All other components are bought and built to our specifications from American companies, too!
