We're Getting One of These Right Away!
Many people, particularly DIY-ers and homesteader, prefer heating their homes the old-fashioned way, namely a wood stove. After all, they do make the house quite warm and cozy, and they have the advantage of not using fossil fuels. Instead, all you need is a few logs of wood and you're good to go. However, there's a more efficient way to heat your home, and it's one you may not think of because it involves installing something outside your home instead of inside.
So what is this method that's so much better? It's an outdoor wood boiler, and it's our new favorite heating system. Like a wood stove, it allows you to forego fossil fuels. However, it's a lot more flexible in terms of what you can use, because they work well with any type of wood. Plus, they have the extra advantage of helping your house stay cleaner, because all of the bark, dirt and bugs stay outside instead of making your living room a mess.
