The Caddy Alterna is a 120,000 BTU warm-air pellet furnace. With its 240-pound hopper capacity and its efficiency topping the 81% mark, it is the perfect heating device for the coldest North American winters.
Its state-of-the-art LCD control panel lets you configure the furnace rapidly and easily.
The bottom-feed burner system has been tested with four different types of pellets: standard wood pellets, 100% bark pellets, sawdust/hay mix pellets, and switch grass pellets.
This flexibility in fuel selection will allow you to keep more money in your pocket an avoid potential fuel shortages.
But versatility does not end there.
The Caddy Alterna can accept an optional electric element that can be installed on either side of the furnace.
What's more, the maximum BTU on the Caddy Alterna may be adjusted by the homeowner or installer.
Indeed, the PC board allows three additional input configurations: 60,000BTU, 80,000BTU, and 100,000BTU.
For smaller homes, this input selection flexibility will result in extended cycling intervals and will lead to fuel economies.
In terms of heating capacity, homeowners must also realize the benefits of the regulated feed rate provided by a pellet furnace like the Caddy Alterna.
As long as there is fuel in the hopper and thermostatic demand, the Caddy Alterna will consistently produce the desired maximum heat output.
No wonder it can heat up to 3,000 square feet!
