Ash removal is extremely easy with our ash pan. Our ash pan is built with a separate access door for your safety in removing the ash while the unit is under load.

• Are the controls on a Royall furnace complicated?
Absolutely not, Royall uses controls that are tried and true in the industry.
• What is creosote and how can I reduce it?
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors, which combine with expelled moisture to form a nasty product referred to as creosote. The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a slow burning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, this creosote makes a hot fire. The chimney connector and chimney should be inspected at least weekly by you to ensure everything is working correctly, and yearly by a professional to ensure proper operation and safety. If creosote has accumulated it should be removed to reduce the risk of a chimney fire. In the case of a chimney fire, Royall is not liable for damages to the furnace or your personal property.
• What's the best practice in burning wood in a Royall furnace?
Paper and kindling should be used for starting the fire. When loading your wood into your Royall furnace, the best practice is to load the wood towards the back of the furnace first and then towards the front. Royall recommends burning cut, split and dried seasoned hardwood. Do not overfill the unit so that hot coals fall out of the wood furnace when opening the fuel door. After burning wood or coal in your furnace for a period of time, you will discover how much wood is needed per day and what types of wood burn best for you. Also look at the best burn practice for additional information.
• Can I use a Royall product with my existing forced air system in my house?
Absolutely, this is a common application of an indoor wood furnace. When installing your furnace do not forget a back draft damper. This allows your gas furnace to turn back on when your wood furnace gets low on fuel.
