The Hardy Design
The Hardy Outside Woodburning heater is
designed to be located next to your firewood storage for
convenient loading, normally twice a day.  This
removes the fire danger from your building and keeps
wood, trash, smoke and ashes outside.
The Hardy heater does not require special
equipment to transport or relocate.  The heater firebox is
constructed of 14 and 16 gauge 304 stainless steel for the
best heat transfer possible.  The heat transfer
efficiency is three times better with 16 gauge 304
stainless steel than with 3/8” carbon steel.  The all
stainless steel firebox also resists rusting and burnout that
occurs in standard carbon steel.  The insulated all
stainless steel firebox door and ash door holds the heat in
and resists burnout and corrosion.  The firebox comes
standard with thick heavy cast iron grates to make
weekly ash removal simple and fast.  
The use of chemicals inside the water tank is not
necessary because of the corrosion resistance of 304
stainless steel.  Since hot water evaporates, Hardy
invented a condenser stack located on the rear of the
heater that condenses the steam and returns it to the
water tank.  The water tank is vented to the atmosphere
to eliminate the safety hazards common with a
pressurized boiler.  
Standard features on Hardy heaters are an
adjustable aquastat, combustion blower for damper
control, 4 GPM at 20 feet of head stainless steel
circulator pump with on/off control relay, and automatic
water level controls.  The Hardy provides hot water for
hot air duct systems, water baseboard, radiant floor heat,
unit heaters and other existing hydronic systems.
The outside cover is constructed of 24 gauge 304
stainless steel to give you years of  maintenance-free
service.  The stainless steel cover will not fade, needs no
painting and does not require any weather protection.
The primary Hardy design goal is to give years of
good service and make it easy to maintain
