THE NEW GENERATION OF FURNACES
Known for its exceptional performance, the Caddy Advanced is a furnace that’s innovative design (patent pending) is surpassed only by its simplicity of use.
DISCOVER SELF-REGULATED COMBUSTION
The self-regulated combustion of the Caddy Advanced promises constant heat while requiring minimal effort on your part; just fill the furnace, adjust the temperature and enjoy the heat for hours! The system automatically adjusts the air supply so that combustion is optimized and synchronized with the thermostatic demand.
- At start-up, the furnace injects additional combustion air for easy and quick ignition.
- As the furnace goes into heating mode, it automatically adjusts the combustion air supply and the operation of the convection blower. When your home’s desired temperature is reached (thermostat setting), the furnace goes into energy-saving mode, automatically reducing the combustion air and speed of the convection blower.
- At the end of the combustion cycle, if the furnace needs to go back to heating mode (thermostat setting), additional combustion air is injected again to activate the combustion of the embers thus providing a hotter burn at the end of the combustion cycle.
EASE OF USE
Use the Caddy Advanced with confidence thanks to its intuitive operation and illustrated quick user guide. Equipped with a glass door allowing you to easily monitor the state of combustion, the furnace optimizes its combustion cycle: you will spend much less time taking care of it vs a conventional furnace (loading wood, adjusting the air, etc.). This optimization also ensures substantial savings in firewood as well as increased comfort thanks to the production of constant heat throughout the combustion cycle.
Among the most efficient furnaces in terms of energy distribution, the Caddy Advanced has one of the lowest minimum burn rates in the industry. This means a load of wood burns longer, and therefore reduces the frequency of wood loading. Emissions on this unit are amongst the cleanest of the few EPA 2020 certified furnaces, and yet the Caddy Advanced is among the most energy-efficient on the market. In addition, the new ECM motor blower option consumes 40% less electricity (and is much quieter) than a standard PSC motor blower.
QUICK AND FLEXIBLE INSTALLATION
The Caddy Advanced is equipped with pre-wired electrical components that allow for quick and hassle-free installation. For more flexibility, you can install the filter supports on either side and on top of the blower box to adapt the layout of the ventilation ducts to your space. In addition, the add-on configuration allows you to install the Caddy Advanced with your existing electric, oil, or gas central heating system to take advantage of an alternative energy source.
The Caddy Advanced includes a toolset and wall support, an ash lip, a thermostat, a moisture reader, a barometric damper, and a fresh air intake adapter.
Alternate source of heat
Always have an alternate source of heat to ensure the comfort and safety of your family. The Caddy Advanced comes in two different configurations: wood-only and wood add-on furnace.
This furnace can be installed as a wood-only unit. A blower box with a regular or ECM motor is required for this configuration.
If you’ve already got an oil, gas, or electric central heating system but want to add the flexibility of wood, the Caddy Advanced wood add-on furnace is for you. This unit, which installs on either side of your existing system, uses the same controls and fan as your existing furnace, giving you a fully compatible wood+oil, wood+gas, or wood+electric combo system.
