About six years ago, we put the first video of a GARN unit in operation on our website. It was picked up and posted to YouTube, and has been one of the most popular links on our site. We added it to illustrate real life operation of a clean-burning GARN WHS unit. The movie has become almost as famous as the unit itself.

The unit shown in the first video below is now 17 years old. It heats a 5100 sq ft house and a small outbuilding in Northern Minnesota – one of the coldest parts of the country. The movie speaks for itself about the clean and easy operation of the GARN WHS.

This video shows what a typical burn in a GARN WHS unit looks like. Notice the very hot, clean burn. No creosote or ash builds up on the glass during the video. This is the first hour of a burn that lasts typically 2.5 – 3 hours. A lot of the video is time lapse, so you can watch the pile collapse fairly quickly.

This video showcases a GARN WHS 2000 unit in central Minnesota near St. Cloud. The GARN team visited John during his first heating season. This video was filmed during one of the coldest days of the 2009-2010 winter; the outdoor temperature was nearly -22 °F. John cut his wood load by half when he switched to a GARN unit from his previous wood burner.

Visit with Floyd and Pam as they candidly share how their GARN wood heating system has enriched their lives and enabled them to claim home heating energy independence.
In this video you will discover:

  • Why Floyd chose GARN over all other wood boilers
  • The importance of thermal storage
  • Why GARN wood heating systems last so long
  • How Floyd and Pam saved over $3,000 on fuel oil
  • Why Pam loves loading their GARN
  • Why GARN is good for the environment
