FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How does a Crown Royal Stove, furnace, boiler or hydronic heater work? 

The Crown Royal Stove is located outside (normally 20 to 300 feet away) next to your fuel storage for convenience. The water jacket surrounds the firebox, heating the water which is circulated to your home or/and other buildings through insulated underground pipes. After the underground pipes are run into your furnace room a heat exchanger is plumbed, either water-to-water or water-to-air, and transfers heat to your forced air furnace, baseboard or radiant in-floor heating system. These systems are thermostatically controlled so you get an even heat throughout your home or business. LEARN MORE HERE.
