Shelter® EPA Certified Indoor Wood Burning Furnace


EPA-certified and made in the USA, the Shelter SF1000E forgoes natural gas, oil, or propane for the cost-savings of wood fuel. It may be used as a standalone, forced-air heating solution or as an add-on wood furnace to provide additional heat for your living space. Each furnace is handcrafted in St. Louis, Missouri.

Green and Efficient. Less Wood, More Comfort.™


Product Description

Whole Home Heating Solution™

The Shelter SF1000E can comfortably heat a 2,500-square-foot home. Its pre-wired electrical components help to avoid complicated electrical work, and its two 8” starting collars and 6” chimney connection point facilitate easy, seamless integration both to your HVAC ductwork and chimney system. With clearance to combustible distances of just 6” on the sides of the unit and 12” on the back, the SF1000E may be installed safely in even the most cramped spaces.

The furnace’s insulated, stainless steel-lined firebox helps to protect its vital, vulnerable components. The firebox also enables burn times up to 9 hours for comfortable and consistent whole-home heating. A thermostatically controlled draft induction blower and a powerful distribution blower combine to deliver a maximum peak heat output of 143,500 BTUs. The furnace’s easy-access ash pan allows for quick, easy cleaning as wood fuel is expended.
