The World's #1 Forced Air Wood Gasification Furnaces
**********"Kuuma today for a better tomorrow"**********
Well it's all about safety, high efficiency, and enhancing our environment when it comes to burning wood using a
The biggest difference from the
Emissions from our competitors that average 5 gr/hr or more or .3 gr/mj, won't allow true smokeless burns and wood gasification.
***There are a lot of different nationwide incentives available for switching to more efficient and emission friendly wood burning appliances. Please check with your state to see if any are available in your area. Our independent test results provide proof of just how efficient and environmentally friendly the
***Update (3.24.15)*** The EPA has finalized and published in the federal register the regulations for wood burning furnaces. We plan on undergoing the testing process this summer. Click here for more information.
***We have received confirmation that these are the final emission results for the testing of our Kuuma Vapor-Fire 100-
Cat 1 – 0.147 lb/MMBtu
Cat 2 – 0.089 lb/MMBtu
Cat 3 – 0.093 lb/MMBtu
Cat 4 – 0.043 lb/MMBtu
Our average is .093 lb/MMBtu, which is pretty impressive considering no catalytic converter is being used for combustion and the current standard is .93 lb/MMBtu (10 times better). It's the only warm air furnace that we are aware of which has exceeded 2020 EPA phase 2 emissions requirements. We haven't received the final document from Intertek yet for final EPA certification and it might be a little while since we have to update our owners manual and a couple of other things. If we had more time and money I know we could've done a little better but we don't want to invest another large amount of $ to retest all of the categories and my dad doesn't have any more time to sit through all of the burns:)
If you don't meet these requirements you won't be able to sell the furnace when the requirement goes into effect.
EPA Phase 1 requirement is .93
EPA Phase 2 requirement is .15 (coming in 2020) all 4 burns need to be under the .15 and not just the average (very difficult)!
For comparison, I found the following information posted on other furnace manufacturers websites:
Mini-Caddy - .841 lb/MMBtu
Caddy - .654 lb/MMBtu
Max Caddy - .735 lb/MMBtu
Tundra II - .654 lb/MMBtu
Heatmax - .654 lb/MMBtu
Heatpack - .841 lb/MMBtu
Heatpro - .735 lb/MMBtu

Love a hot sauna? So does he... Feedback from the creator of saunatimes.com
If anyone is interested in learning more about our small business, wood burning in general, or saunas Glenn Auerbach aka the sauna guru did a podcast with Daryl Lamppa in August 2016 titled Sauna Talk with Daryl Lamppa, 3rd generation Finnish sauna stove maker. It covers a lot of questions that we get asked on a regular basis and is a great way to kill an hour while commuting. Click Here
