Fire Chief EPA Certified FC1700 Wood Burning Indoor Furnace

Now Using Clean Burn Technology.

Superbly engineered to deliver radiant warmth to the largest of residences, our EPA Certified FC1700 wood burning indoor furnace exceeds expectation. Providing longer burn times and distributing more heat than pre-EPA approved furnaces, this Fire Chief unit exceeds expectation. Initiated by our thermostatically controlled draft blower and self-regulating secondary air control system, our longer burn times eliminate worry between loads. Fire Chief’s use of the industry’s strongest high capacity, 3-speed adjustable draft blower guarantees reliable distribution and whole-home circulation of heat. The furnace’s digital thermostat then monitors the temperature to maintain comfort ensuring maximum performance with less user interaction. Loaded with features that the competition considers options or upgrades, the FC1700 heats up to 3,000 sq. ft. confidently with its Clean Burn Technology. Featuring a 4.6 cu. ft. firebox, the FC1700 accepts 26” logs and distributes a maximum peak output of 240,000 BTU¹ of heat throughout your home. This Fire Chief furnace is equipped with our exclusive 360° cast iron roller grate system and stainless-steel ash pan enabling ease of maintenance and maintaining high efficiency furnace operation. The FC1700 rear-mounted draft blower and side-mounted electrical enclosure streamline the design of our top of the line indoor model. Our customers enjoy its easy access drop-in filter which keeps the blower clean and maximizes clean air distribution. Manufactured for over 40 years in St. Louis, Missouri, the FC1700 proudly displays its MADE IN THE USA label.
