Nature's Comfort Boilers
I am totally enamored by Nature's Comfort high quality. Built by the Amish;
Built in Shipshewana, IN; close to the fabrication plants in the heart of
Amish country, with their strong work ethic and pride in the quality of their
We all know about the quality of their furniture; second to none. The quality
of their furnaces is the same; second to none!
You can have great confidence in their customer service and the work ethic of
the whole company, led by Dave Nyhof, who leads by example.
(Like any major appliance, unlike some manufacturer's furnaces, the Nature's
Comfort comes pre-wired and ready to install.
It comes with a pump installed (which most manufacturers do not even
supply; sort of like selling a car without a steering wheel because you
needed) and this is a heavy duty, high-volume pump.
It also has a thermostat and an analog thermometer plus a
water level indicator on the roof to show you when the water level is low.
All of these furnaces (except for the very smallest one), come with 2 sets
of ports, to add another pump and another building, structure or pool or
hot tub, at any time.
The Nature's Comfort furnace has a forced air induction fan is on the
back of the furnace, that is very large (250 CFM) with an automatic damper
(instead of on the front door, like many other models) and is the new
automatic forced-air induction type, to fuel the fire with oxygen. This does
not mean that it has circuit boards or is complicated; it simply has a
solenoid to open and close the air intake door, which makes it extremely more
efficient (burns less wood), instead of a manual door that constantly needs
The firebox door is a real nice, big size, with the smallest at just shy of 22
inches wide and 22 inches tall, up to 25.5" wide and 26" tall..
One tremendously valuable feature about this furnace is that it has a
removable ash pan; meaning that you can clean out the ashes at any point
in time. You do not have to open the firebox door and kill your fire like with
other furnaces. It does not matter if the firebox is 800 degrees or 2000
degrees! No need to kill the fire!
It also has an ash receptacle that is 39 inches deep, that is an actual pull
out pan, for easy ash removal; even when there is a raging fire up top! No
need to kill the fire and then have to restart it; in the dead of winter!)
Nature's Comfort ABOUT US page says: "Currently located in Shipshewana, IN,
was started in Lancaster, WI by Dave Nyhof and his son Eric in
November, 2006 stemming from a
passion for alternative energy and inventing that
was developed during Dave’s 30 years in the
residential home building industry.
Beginning with inventing a corn furnace for his own use after frustration of his
family not being able
to keep their current one functioning, Dave started
selling another brand¹ of outdoor wood furnaces soon after.
After not being able
to fulfill orders due to manufacturer problems not keeping up with demand,
designed and built his own unit simply to fulfill orders, obligations and to
better meet the
expectations of quality from his customers."
¹ The "other" manufacturer (in bold above) was Shaver Furnace and they were not
able to keep up!
