We have collected reviews on 34 brands of wood furnaces -- however, we have not included all those brands in this list. When we only have a handful of reviews, we run the risk that a single homeowner might sway the ratings too much. For that reason, we have only included the average rating for brands where we have at least 5 ratings.
