"Unacceptable product"

2.0 rating
Somewhat Unsatisfied

I bought the NCB-175 with the recommendation of the dealer for the size of my house. The amount of wood I burn is incredible. I went through 18 truckloads of seasoned cherry from mid-November to mid-January, keeping my house at 67. I have also gone through two pumps in a year and a half. The first one was warrantied but not the labor. The second pump is not, because it froze. Warning – if you have to travel often or risk running out of wood, do not buy this. The system cannot be shut down in cold weather. If it freezes it voids your warranty.

"Couldn't be happier!"

I just received my first electric bill for a month heating my family's home and our domestic hot water with an NCB-175 and I couldn't be happier. We have a family of 5 in a newly-built home (about 2600 square feet) and our bill for December was less than $60. If you have access to firewood and don't mind the extra work, you can't go wrong with these stoves.

"Saves money"

The system heats our house and hot water with 2 times a day supply of wood. Adding coal with the wood reduces trips outside. It saves so much money on heat bills and the entire house is warm even in the coldest of weather. We go away each year in February. What is the best way to keep the unit from damage when away and not in operation?

The stove heats the farm house well. It is well-built and I recommended it highly. Just make sure you have the correct chimney size. Mine came with a 6-inch instead of a five-inch. This problem is still not resolved with the dealer. Update on Feb 1, 2015: We are getting hammered with snow and wind here today. The boiler is doing a fine job of heating the house. It is a constant 72 degrees in the house. The wind chill is at -15. I filled the boiler this morning. Can't be happier! Update on Mar 15, 2015: We are starting to warm up here in Michigan. The boiler has done a great job this year, especially in February. Kevin from Airsource (the guy who installed it) said to turn it down to a hundred and forty degrees. This is 40 degrees lower than the winter setting of a hundred and eighty degrees. The house is still 74 degrees and not burning as much wood. Thanks Kevin from Airsource. He is very knowledgeable and is located around the Marlette area. Best boiler made.

I recently bought an NCB-250 wood boiler from Randy at Wood Heating Solutions, and I must say it was a great experience. He was very knowledgeable and he got me in touch with Matt, his installer, who made this purchase that much better. Thank you to everyone at Wood Heating Solutions and Arctic Heating as well as Nature's Comfort for the great unit.
