"Great unit"
Great unit. I heat a 2,000 square foot home and domestic hot water in the winter and a 15,000 gallon swimming pool in the summer. I burn wood and coal when the temperature is below 32 degrees and only wood when temperatures are above 32 degrees. I never have any trouble keeping my home warm now and have all of the hot water I can use. I completed the installation is about two weeks in my free time. Everything is prewired and the only connection needed is as simple as wiring a plug. Up to this point I had never worked with PEX pipe so I was a little apprehensive but after a few connections I will have a hard time going back to anything else. The dealer I bought the boiler from recommended a 6" sewer pipe to run my PEX in and it worked great. I measured my run from the boiler pad to the inside boiler room and added 6' of extra PEX for each connection. I used two 1" lines, two 3/4" lines, a 1/2" line, and a 1/4" pull rope. I then wrapped the five lines and rope in a silver bubble wrap then finished with duct tape. I have had people tell me that when it snows they have a bare spot where the lines are run under ground. I do not have that problem so I assume that the insulation is working good. I have about a 100' run to the house and experience about a 8 degree heat loss in that distance. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner.

"10 years going strong"
I have a 10 year old Mahoning 200 that heats a 2800 square foot house in central Pennsylvania. It uses plenty of wood when very cold, but heats all our hot water year round with little wood in warm months. When coupled with an indirect fired hot water heater you will not run out of hot water. The only thing I have replaced is a the blower fan in the back and it was an easy swap for a do-it-yourself handyman. No complaints to speak of other than the amount of wood they require. They are simply designed, and seem built to last. I would buy from Mahoning again.

"Why didn't I do this sooner?"
Let me start out stating that I am located in south central Pennsylvania. Last winter we had endured a few polar vortex weather anomalies which threw my electric bill into the $500 a month range heating with a heat pump. I live in a single wide mobile home, mind you, (insurance company will absolutely not let an indoor woodstove be installed) and that was the cost of me keeping our home @ an average of 66 degrees. Our plans are to live here until we build a house and then rent the mobile out; so when the idea to get an outdoor furnace came about, we decided it would not be worth the money to have one installed. In Pennsylvania you can no longer install a new outdoor wood furnace (unless you already had one installed before the legislation; then you are grandfathered in) unless it is a Stage 2 and the price of one of these units is substantially higher than the traditional units. Also, Stage 2 units require more maintenance. Then we found out we were pregnant with our first child. Can't keep a house 66 degrees with a newborn. I did some research and found that in Pennsylvania a traditional-style outdoor coal furnace is still legal to be installed. After researching a while I ordered my Mahoning in the fall. I highly suggest placing orders in the summer because mine did not make it until December due to a high influx of orders for the winter season; they get backed up. It's been in a little over a month now and I absolutely love it. This unit is heating my 900 square foot home, a 336 squar foot out building, and my domestic hot water. I have not burned any coal in my coal furnace yet, only wood. I fill it in the morning before I go to work and then again before I go to bed. I have a few acquaintances with older Mahoning wood furnaces and there are a lot of design changes that have been made for greater efficiency. The new furnace exhaust is sent through the back and then out as compared with the old style, which just went straight out of the top. Water tubes are in the top of the firebox now to heat water with lower blower times. Check them out to see other changes made. To sum it all up, I love my furnace and would recommend it to anyone. I wish I would have installed it sooner, but hindsight is 20/20. I will update this if possible if anything changes, and to state the difference in my electric bill as time goes on.

"Best investement we ever made!"
We are on the third winter of using our outdoor woodstove. I love the fact that all the mess is outside, no more inside burning. We only have to fill it twice a day when its below 30, once when its nicer out. We can have the house really warm and it just uses a little more wood. MUCH less expensive than oil or gas. The only thing i dont like is you have to have someone tend to it if you go away in the winter. But thats easily fixed if you get the wood to oil convertor, which will switch over and burn oil if you are away. We have only had to have one minor repair on it which was a fuse in the box because lightning struck it during a bad thunderstorm one time. It is about due for a new rope around the door to keep it sealed, smoke is starting to seep out through the door every so often. I would definately recomend this brand to a friend. If i was starting over I would definately buy this brand again.
