Consumers can buy a wood boiler from Nature's Comfort from one of 195 dealers throughout the United States. The company can also ship a boiler from its plant in Indiana, as of 2015. Nature's Comfort makes eight models of wood boilers.
It takes approximately two weeks to receive a boiler from the plant during the slow season after an order is placed. During the peak season, consumers can expect to receive a wood boiler in four to eight weeks after buying one through the customer service phone number. Shipping prices vary by load capacity and quantity.
Nature's Comfort wood boilers heat between 2,000 and 12,000 square feet. Boilers have 80-gallon tanks up to 400-gallon tanks. Heating capacities go from 115,000 British thermal units to 500,000 BTUs, whereas weights range from 1,050 pounds up to 2,613 pounds. Prices range from approximately $3,500 to $9,500, depending on the size and model of the wood boiler.
The wood boilers pump heated water into a home's already-existing heating and cooling system to provide hot air during cold months. Cooler water returns to the boiler where it gets reheated and sent back into the home. These outdoor boilers work with forced-air furnaces, direct-plumbed boilers and boilers that have baseboard heat. The entire boiler system and the water pipes into the house are insulated from cold weather to prevent heat loss to the outdoors.
