What are the 10 Best Wood Furnaces?
The Hardy Manufacturing Company began in 1976 when Jerome Hardy and Bobby Smith developed a farmland heater. In 1978, the heater’s warm-air distribution system was replaced by a hot water system, which was patented in 1979. In 1986 Frank Moore, Hardy’s son-in-law, became president of the company.
Today the Hardy furnace is sold in the United States by a nationwide network of 275 independent dealers. Sales have also been made in Canada, Europe, Asia and Mexico.
Hardy furnaces are available in several models, including the KB125 and KB165, which burn cordwood; the C3 and C5, which burn coal; and the LC300, LC500 and LC2500, which are light commercial cordwood units. Hardy furnaces all feature stainless steel construction and can provide heat and domestic hot water.
The Hardy Manufacturing Company provides a 10-year warranty on coal-burning furnaces and a 25-year warranty on cordwood-burning models.
