Fire Chief® EPA Certified Indoor Wood Burning Furnace


Proudly made in the USA in St. Louis, Missouri, the FC1000E is an EPA-certified forced-air wood burning furnace. Configurable as an add-on to your existing furnace or a standalone whole-home heating solution, it utilizes Clean Burn Technology™ to deliver clean, consistent heat through your entire home.

Fire Chief®

Product Description

Whole Home Heating Solution™

Capable of comfortably heating up to 2,500 square feet, the FC1000E comes standard with pre-wired, plug-and-play electrical components that install easily. The top of the furnace features two 8” starting collars to facilitate ductwork installation, and the back includes a 6” chimney connector. The furnace’s minimal clearances-to-combustibles — 6” on the side and 12” on the back — make it an ideal choice for installation in confined areas with limited space.

The insulated stainless steel-lined firebox helps to protect vital operating components from heat damage. With 3.4 cubic feet of space, the firebox can accommodate up to 20” logs, resulting in burn times up to 9 hours and a maximum heat output of 143,500 BTUs. A thermostatically-controlled draft inducer on the front of the furnace ensures quick, efficient heat production, while a 1,800 CFM distribution blower on the back of the unit provides consistent, continuous heat delivery throughout your living space.
