No general knowledge when you call them, the dealers are just selling snake oil. AVOID THE WOOD DOCTOR FURNACE AT ALL COST.

I owned a Wood Doctor Converter model and operated it in eastern Canada. It burned about 14 bush cords of hardwood per year to heat my 2500 square foot house. I had to replace it after one year due to a leak. I had lots of problems with the WD people who have no technical knowledge of what they sell (i was dealing with the owners of the WD firm in Nova Scotia). The unit also requires very frequent maintenance, including a very painstaking cleaning of the blower vanes every month due to creosote/ash accumulation. It is a poor design in terms of minimizing maintenance and clearly there is a manufacturing problem since the new unit has started leaking after one year. All leaks in both units seem to be in the weld beads in the burning chamber. The downdraft gasifier idea is good, but the manufacturing is poor and the post-sales service is ridiculously bad.
