    Not a bad looking furnace. What's its specs, and how does it vary from the Caddy Line?

    N what is your definition of "Affordable?"

    I tend to ignore descriptivisms like "affordable"... way to relative.
    Heck, if ya' live in a cardboard box a new door ain't "affordable".

    What's the reasoning for a glass door?

    There will be two version of it. Black one = HeatMax and the Beige = Tundra. For different market. More or less same unit.

    If you remember a couple of months ago I asked users on AS to tell me their wish list for a wood furnace. Glass door was high on the list. The air was is great so the glass stays clean. No smoke baffle in front of the door to burn your hand.

    I'll give more info and pricing very shortly.

    i dont have a furnace but it makes it so much easier to see how things are going in my wood stove. without touching the door or running outside to see the chinmey i can tell if i need to add wood or change the air intake at a glance if it is smoldering.


    plus i like to see the pretty flames:hmm3grin2orange:

    The only reason I asked was that most "furnaces" are tucked away in a basement, not usually where one would sit and enjoy the view. It appears they did their research and that's what people wanted, good for them.
