I knew for about 2 years that I wanted to update my wood boiler at some point. I started my research mid summer of 2016 and started taking recommendations and comparing stoves. I compared everything from thickness of steel, steel type, water volume, efficiency ratings and overall ease of use. After a couple years of research, I came to the conclusion that Crown Royal Stoves (Greentech Manufacturing Inc.) were the most robust built, were the best of all worlds that I could find. I don't think you can go wrong with this company. They're honest, willing to answer questions and family owned. I'm happy with the purchase I made and can't wait to see what the future holds with this unit.

I added a Crown Royal 7300 on my acreage to heat my house. It's set up to heat my domestic water, my in floor heat as well as my forced air. Previous to this we burned LP and would go through $1500 a year on LP. Now I burn approximately 3 cords of wood that I can have made in a weekends time. And I keep my LP as a back up if I am gone for a long weekend and for use of the cooking stove. 300 gallons lasts me over 5 years. All of my family has other wood stoves and a close friend works for a HVAC company. They are all envious of my Crown Royal Stove. Now my friend even recommends them over the previous brand he used to sell!! They are a great machine, well built and easy to maintain. Now I don't have to feel bad for keeping my house at a toasty 80 degrees through the winter! And best of all, with a full family and two bathrooms, we NEVER run out of hot water. Five stars for Crown Royal.

My wife and I moved to northern Minnesota in June 2013. We built a 40X60 pole barn with a small apartment in it. Our plan all along was to get a wood burning boiler. We didn't get into the pole barn until late November so during our first winter our pole barn was heated solely with propane. After spending $700 a month on propane, getting a wood boiler was top priority. I did a lot of research and the Crown Royal RS7400 seemed like the best value and large enough to heat our future log cabin as well. Since we installed our wood boiler we have spent $0 on heat and save about $30 a month on electricity for the water heater.

With our Crown Royal Stove model RS7300E we heat a 3000 square foot house. We burn on average 10 to 12 face cords of 18" wood per season. The stove will burn 15-16 hours on a full load of wood. We have hard maple, ash and cherry wood seasoned at least 1 year. There are several other brands of outdoor stoves in the area. They burn at least twice as much wood as we do. I maintain a house temp 73-75 and water temp maintained at 170-179 degrees.

We have a model 7300 which is tied into our in-floor heating system and it works very well. After 45 years of dealing with all sorts of wood stoves, HS Tarm boiler, and a Heatmor outside furnace I am glad to say that I have purchased my last furnace. The generous loading door, simplicity of operation, cleaning and maintenance make the Crown Royal a pleasure to work with. A 12 hour burn is routine and even in the coldest weather here in the mountains of Virginia it is rare that I have to load more than every 10 hours. The ash pan is easy to access and empty and the large firebox holds a lot of wood.

I love my Crown Royal 7400. I have had this stove for about 4 years. I found it to be competitively priced and a quality product. I have had no issues so far and the customer service is great.

I purchased my Crown Royal Wood Stove in 2015. It works very well with my heat pump, since it raises the air temp quite a bit out of my heat pump or I can run it as the only source of heat, and it heats the entire house. It's a model 7300 which will accept a larger diameter and longer log than my previous wood burner which saves me some labor cutting and splitting.

We have been very pleased with our Crown Royal 7400 wood burner, which we purchased in 2009 from Greentech Manufacturing. It was fairly easy to install and is very low maintenance. The burner doesn't take a large amount of wood to heat our home and water heater. Living in the mid-west, the burner is in use from approximately the beginning of November to mid-March. The types of wood available to burn are oak, elm and wild cherry. The burner needs filled once every 24 hours. Because we were spending so much on propane, the purchase of our wood burner paid for itself within 3 1/2 years. Greentech Manufacturing is a great company to deal with. They are always available to answer any questions and are prompt in sending any needed replacement parts. We highly recommend the purchase of a Crown Royal wood burner from Greentech Manufacturing.

I am so thrilled at leaving a review for Crown Royal Stoves! One of the things that I really enjoy about the outdoor wood boiler is the ease of use and service. I spent $2,400 for one season of propane fill, four fills of 300 gallons. When I purchased my wood, I spent $2,100 for two years of wood for my outdoor wood stove. Not only that, I can cut it and load it and it keeps my home warm in the evening with only one full load and warm in the morning with a separate full load. Crown Royal Stoves as a company was excellent to work with in terms of servicing my unit. I had a problem with the inducer fan that needed replacement. The service person over the phone was willing to work with me after hours in making sure my boiler worked right. They had to send out a new part and worked with me to make sure it fit and my satisfaction was met. Thank you again so much Crown Royal Stoves! I will be going to you for my solid fuel needs.

I have had a Crown Royal furnace hooked up to my house and hot water for the 2nd year now. My heating bills were cut in half and I am able to heat my house and barn cheaper then without the furnace. My house is always warm and toasty from October - April. I love my furnace.

As an owner of a Crown Royal RS7200, I can say that I am very pleased with the quality and performance of this stove. When I decided to purchase an outdoor stove, I researched every brand and model I could find for over two years. After seeing many stoves in person, I decided on the Crown Royal RS7200. I operate this stove nearly year-round and I am impressed with how well it performs in both warm and cold weather. One thing that stands out is how clean burning this stove is when you fine tune the blower speed for the upper air tube. I have also been very happy with the customer service I have received with Crown Royal Stoves. They are very knowledgeable, they helped me throughout my installation and they answered all my technical questions. It has been an overall great experience and I highly recommend Crown Royal Stoves.

Heats like no other. I cannot believe how my Crown Royal wood boiler heats. I have never been more satisfied with a boiler and how well it performs. It is easy to use and burns way less wood than any other boiler I have owned. I made the right choice.

I bought the RS7500 and I’m amazed at how much I can heat now. I used to spend $20,000 per year heating my business. Now I am heating my business for $4,000 and have 20,000 square feet. I am impressed with the stove and company!

I live in Mississippi and owned a Hardy before I purchased a Crown Royal. The Hardy was nicknamed the "wood eater" because of the wood it consumed. I was at a farm show in Ohio and saw a Crown Royal Stove on display. I asked the sales rep. why I should go with a Crown over a Hardy. His response was, it burns less wood. After contemplating, I decided to go with the Crown, and true to the sales rep's word, it burns about 25% less wood. Customer service is also better than Hardy. After installation, I had a few questions, called Crown Royal Stoves, and the customer service rep was more than helpful. I've had the Crown for 2 years, and have had no problems. I am very pleased!!

I recently upgraded to the RS7300E from a different manufactures stove and all I have to say is I am amazed. This thing is saving me a ton of firewood and on the plus side less wood cutting. I am extremely impressed with this stove and the company. I would check them out and do your research with other manufactures before buying. Crown Royal Stoves and Greentech Manufacturing were very professional to work with.
Jared D. - Ohio
Before purchasing my Crown Royal Stove I called around to different manufactures (all of them giving me their sales pitch). But Crown Royal Stoves was different and no pressure. They seemed much more genuine than the other manufactures I talked with. Now, I have had my stove going on 5 years now and it has paid for itself twice! I have received great customer service directly from the manufacture which is very rare these days. I would highly recommend Crown Royal Stoves. Especially after the last disaster I went through with a different manufacture. Make sure to actually call these manufactures before buying. A lot of them blow you off. Not Crown Royal Stoves.

My stove is a 1996 RS7400, and other than a couple blowers and one control the stove is great. I started treating my water the first year I got.the stove and use chemical every year. The stove has saved me around $5000 a year in propane. Love the stove and may replace it with their RS7400E in the future.

After having my second outdoor boiler for 5 years made by Mahoning and not liking the amount of wood it used and holding my breath as it showered sparks out the stack because the design was very poor, I started looking at new ones. At the Pennsylvania Sportsman Show I looked at several different outdoor boilers and the one I liked was a Crown Royal Stoves. The design made sense to me. I decided to purchase the model RS7300 and replace the Mahoning. I began by counting the amount of wood I was using in the Mahoning, on average was 16 pieces per fill. That was every 12 hours. I installed the Crown Royal towards the end of February and yes it was cold. I started a fire in it put the first load in of approximately 7 pieces of wood and 45 minutes later the boiler was up to temperature. I was totally amazed! That would have been a several hour struggle and several loads of wood in the Mahoning. Since the install my wood use has been cut to about in half, and I like it. On days that are in the 30's it will go 24 hours without worry where the old one would have needed wood at 12 hours. Unbelievable difference. This was a sound investment and I would purchase another one for sure. I like the quality of the Crown Royal, it is put together well.
T. Lavery - Pennsylvania
The craftsmanship of the stove is excellent. I purchased this stove five years ago and have been completely satisfied. I heat a 1900 square foot house, a 1600 square foot garage with an apartment on top and burn about six to eight cords a year. I hope this stove lasts a long time, I would definitely purchase another Crown Royal Stove.
Mike B – Pennsylvania
This was one of the best things I have ever done. I had no problems. It was easy to work and works great!

After nearly 4 years of study, talking to owners (all brands), research, and countless hours of viewing boilers in operation first hand, we decided Green Tech Crown Royals were the best option we could find on the market. However, on a tight farmer's budget and a wife that was extremely skeptical about spending our money anywhere, we decided to make a 14 hour trip from Indiana to Green Tech. This was set up for us by a dealer in Traverse City, Michigan, named Larry Street . What an amazing trip this was. Ryan and the crew at Green Tech gave us a day long personal tour and showed us each step of their process to building these state of the art boilers. After seeing that they heat their own factory with these and a lunch trip to Ryan's own home to see he uses his own product, my wife decided walking on these heated floors was pretty close to a heavenly experience! Miss Skeptical decided we should buy a bigger unit than we had planned on and not only heat our 1800 square foot home with one but the farm shop 5600 square feet with 22' ceilings, and a 1400 square foot apartment off of the shop. Now I was a little apprehensive but we wrote the check, loaded our stove and every component needed to install it and headed back to Indiana. We both agree this is the best money we have ever spent, ever! Our home is so warm and comfortable now! Our shop has friends, family, neighbors, and even the local school basketball teams (practices)in it every day because of the amazing comfort of having warm floors in the dead of winter. Needless to say, we are honestly shocked at how easy it was to install ourselves and the results being better than we ever imagined. When you're lying on the floor working, you're warm, your tools are warm, snow melts off fast and the floors dry themselves. We actually have people that stop in at the shop now on cold and wet days and just sit and visit due to the comfort of this heat. We bought a couple old church pews because we ran out of 5 gallon buckets for seating! LOL We have a couple neighbors who had wood boilers before us and just heat their homes off them. We are heating the house, apartment, and shop and we are using 1/3 the wood a week that they use to just heat their home. 1 has already sold his old competitor boiler and is going to make the switch to the boiler we have. The other is in the process of trying to sell his with the intent on getting an RS7400 himself. We are not even close to using all our BTU's available so we are now hooking up to heat our hot water for personal use as well. A calf barn with a heated floor and a grain bin with a drying system off the boiler are now in the planning stages as well. Basically, we are burning wood that we have each year from cleaning fence rows around the farm. We used to pile it and have brush piles to have to burn off. Now we are heating everything for free with the same amount of work we were already doing. This is plain common sense not rocket science. Unit is saving money, more than we even thought. We will never be without this heat. When we go visit people at their places we are cold now and honestly can't wait to get back home to our comfort. Our furniture will last forever cause we usually watch TV from the floor (heating pad) now! Only one problem we have had. The guy that helps me dos repairs in the shop and myself have to work together now, because when you crawl under a truck or tractor to work there is no way you can stay awake unless you have company! The floor is really that nice to work on!

Couldn't be happier with my Crown Royal Stove, one of the best decisions I've ever made. Truly is a great piece of equipment.

We have had our Crown Royal Stove for 5 or 6 years and this thing is built tough. It burns way less wood than my CB that I had. Would recommend to everyone.
