Economical heat is as much about the fuel as it is about the stove, heater, or furnace. Gas and electric furnaces can be highly efficient and convenient, but the cost of the fuel has become a painful drain on the family budget each month. America’s harvest of corn and wood produced pellets is a great way to save.
In 2005 Hurricane Katrina damaged refineries and supply lines of natural and propane gas. In 2006 the Alaskan pipeline was damaged and all energy prices spiked up once again. In 2007 through 2009 record-high crude oil and the depreciating dollar drove petroleum fuel products even higher. Higher taxes are now being levied on conventional fuels. No one knows what might happen next to upset the sensitive balance of petroleum-based fuel prices, but America’s family farmers’ corn production is no where near capacity. By burning corn you can change the economic landscape for your family.
Wood is heavy, dirty, and is neither efficient, convenient, nor environmentally friendly. And unless you have a source for free wood, it is expensive. Hardwood pellet stoves are an economic solution in one of our highly efficient stoves with the solid fuel pellet conversion kit installed.
Corn burns cleaner and hotter than any other fuel. Our corn stoves use a direct vent system that installs easily and less expensively than wood pellet or other types of grain burners.
America’s Harvest Energy corn stoves and furnaces bring together the best fuel (corn) and the most efficient, least expensive corn-specific burning/heating systems available (Amaizablaze corn-burning stoves and furnaces). This is the place to purchase your stove for many years of economic, enjoyable heat. Add the conversion kit and you have a versatile heating solution that allows you to choose the least expensive fuel available no matter how the energy market fluctuates.
Corn may be nature’s only perfect fuel. It produces oxygen as it grows and needs no special processing or pelletizing before use. It is nature’s perfect pellet fuel. A near pure food and pure fuel, corn burns virtually smoke free, odor free, ash free, and pollutant free. It produces no dangerous creosote in your vent pipes, no waste product, and it requires no chimney. Burn corn and you emit no more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than if it were left in the field to decay or fed to animals.
Using a corn stove or furnace will produce the very same three things that you produce every day as you breathe out: carbon dioxide, moisture, and HEAT! (Lots of heat in this case!) If everyone would burn corn rather than wood, the blue-gray haze of wood smoke over our neighborhoods every winter morning would be gone!
Fifty pounds of corn will produce a small ‘clinker’ in the burner, which is a porous chunk about six inches square and three inches thick. It is pure potash that can be easily removed and discarded into your garden where it quickly dissolves to enhance the soil. In less than 10 minutes you can remove the clinker and refill the built in hopper with corn and then enjoy maintenance free operation until the next time to refill –which might be 4 days later! (There are little to no messy ashes to deal with.) Try that with your wood burning stove.
Run our corn burning stove when your commercial power is out by connecting our optional power inverter to a car battery for over 24 hours of back up heat. You don’t want to run your generator for too many hours a day due to the expense of gasoline, so connect a charger to a car battery while your generator runs and then enjoy hours of battery powered backup heat. This may save your life!
Our corn burning stoves and furnaces are not modified wood pellet burners or redesigned bio mass stoves. And, they are not cheap imitation imports. They are the real thing, American made, Underwriters Laboratories approved, and specifically designed to burn corn! They are the most efficient, most dependable, most attractive, and least expensive pellet burning stove option available.
Our stoves and furnaces have been called a ‘do-it-yourselfer’s-dream’.
