Corporate History

The Lynndale wood furnace was designed by Lee Daniel in 1974, in response to customers requesting an efficient way to heat their homes with wood. His use of modern controls proved to be so unique, the system received the first patent on a wood burning device in several decades. The product has proved to be so durable, many of the furnaces built in the 1970's are still in use today. Since the first unit was installed in Northwest Arkansas, thousands have been purchased across the nation to heat homes, schools, factories, commercial buildings and agricultural structures such as poultry houses and greenhouses. The Lynndale has become synonymous with efficient wood heating

Product Information

The system shown (right) provides a view of the fully assembled furnace complete with an insulated cabinet that accommodates installation in relatively small spaces, such as a basement or storage area. The rear portion of the cabinet contains the warm air distribution blower which moves air through conventional ductwork into the home. This model includes the popular hot water option, which preheats domestic hot water.
Also shown is the combustion air blower (beneath the loading door) which is the key to the Lynndale's judicious use of wood. The fire is electronically controlled, burning wood only when heat is needed in the conditioned space. The ash pit door, shown beneath the combustion air blower, allows for easy ash removal.

Lynndale Side View

The side view drawing to the left illustrates the division of the firebox into a primary and a secondary combustion chamber. The volatile flue gases are combusted in the secondary chamber, aided by additional combustion air which mixes with the gases prior to exit from the stack. This dual combustion process dramatically increases the efficiency of the Lynndale system and reduces the amount of wood required to heat your home. The typical loading cycle is eight to twelve hours, depending on the weather and the size of the home. The side view drawing also shows the location of the ash pan beneath the cast iron shaker grates. Ashes are normally emptied weekly in residential applications.

The Classic Lynndale

The perspective drawing (right) illustrates the typical installation of a Lynndale wood furnace. When fully assembled, the blower located in the back of the cabinet forces warm air across the firebox and out the duct work mounted atop the unit. The electronic controls, mounted above the furnace, control the combustion air and the warm air blowers. When the thermostat inside the home calls for heat, the combustion air blower is activated and the fire is fanned until the heated air reaches a specified temperature. Then the combustion air blower is shut off, prior to the end of the heating cycle, thus conserving fuel and avoiding overheating that is associated with less sophisticated wood burning devices, such as stoves. As you can see, the Lynndale is not your typical woodburner. Electronic control of the combustion cycle, combined with secondary combustion of the flue gases, offers each Lynndale owner the best that wood heating has to offer.

Systems are available for residential, commercial and industrial applications. A wide range of output capacities are offered, including custom designed systems for industrial customers.
