The Heatmaster MF eSeries is an outdoor multifuel furnace with a heating capacity ranging from 250,000 to 800,000 BTUs and a water capacity ranging from 130 to 555 gallons. Along with wood, the MF eSeries will burn coal and any type of biomass. Like the MF Series, the MF eSeries is manufactured with 409 stainless steel and features heavy duty double wall insulation, a large round firebox and a dual firebox door latch. In addition, it features an additional heat exchanger pass and an optional secondary air injection, allowing the unit to burn 20-30% less wood than the MF Series. It also has an insulated rear door which is hinged for quick and easy removal without the use of tools. The 2016 starting price of the MF eSeries is 8,495.00.
My oil furnace went out during Thanksgiving in 2012. I'd been looking into an outdoor wood system because home heating oil at the time had went to $3.72 a gallon. No sooner than a 500 gal refill my furnace went ca put. Thankfully the house never caught fire from the melted wires. I jumped on the phone and called the nearest outdoor boiler dealer and asked if he could install me a system. We discussed size needs and he recommended a Heatmaster MF-3000e. This being an old 1 1/2 story cold wood framed home. He said if I could get a trench dug from the house to the location I wanted the burner he would be there first thing in the morning. By 7:00 am he was here. It was in the twenties outside and before 11:00 am he had my system installed and the house over 70 degrees inside. This is what I consider my best ever purchase. I have access to plenty of wood and this system works great even with green wood. Now I stay as warm as I want, get exercise gathering wood during the winter and sleep like a baby. The only issue I ever had was when first installed was a sticky air flapper. It seemed after every few hundred openings it would hang open causing it to boil over. No problems as the safety systems worked as it should have. The installer replaced the solenoid and all has performed perfect in the last 5 seasons. Staying as warm as I want, all mess outside and very little caring for ashes and maintenance, I'm very pleased with my system and would recommend this to anyone looking for the same.

I love my Heatmaster outdoor wood burning stove.

Yes I would buy another Heatmaster. It has took a lot of work out of doing firewood. The hot water in the house is nice. When 5 kids are taking baths and never losing hot water.
"Heat Master is the best!"
Growing up we always used an indoor wood stove for winter time heat. There's a few downfalls to using an indoor wood burner. The two biggest one's to me are having to keep the wood indoors and not being able to control the house temperature via thermostat. The Heat Master does away with both of those. It is a high quality stove that requires minimum maintenance. The biggest reason we went with Heat Master was because of our local dealer. These systems are pretty easy to install, which I did mine myself. Only suggestion I would have for someone installing a new one, is to add bypass valves on the hot water coil in the heat pump. This way you can bypass the coil and still use the a/c on your hvac unit. Which is very handy in the late Fall and early Winter. This allows you to still heat your water but the added benefit of a/c without having to let the stove's fire burnout. One of the biggest benefits, if not the biggest, is the indoor hot water. It's like having hot water on demand. I would highly recommend a Heat Master product to anyone. We've been well pleased with ours, which has been in service for six years.
"Electricity bill savings"
We purchased our Heatmaster woodstove after a hard winter and paying over $700/month in heating bills. It has more than paid for itself in the last several years. We had a few problems with the design of the e Series but the customer service of Yoder Heating has been outstanding and we have had no issues the last few years. Not only does it deliver great heat to our house and a reduction of $500/month on our heating bill it also is great exercise for me and my family cutting and splitting wood!
There are very few online posts regarding the MF eSeries on HVAC forums. A homeowner on outdoorwoodfurnaceinfo.com asked for opinions on the unit, but most members knew very little about it. There were mixed reviews on the post about the Heatmaster brand.
