Alternate source of heat
With the Caddy series furnaces, you will never again be dependent on a single source of energy to guarantee the comfort and safety of your family. The Caddy Alterna II allows two different configurations: pellet only or combined pellet+electric.
This wood pellet (Premium grade or better) furnace can be installed as a pellet-only unit.
COMBINED PELLET + ELECTRIC
This furnace can be installed as a wood pellet+electric combo unit to avoid interruption of your central heating when you are not available to feed the pellets (Premium grade or better). The addition of an electric element is required for this type of installation.
