Valley Comfort

Wood Heating


The First

Valley Comfort’s new APEX-CBT, Catalytic indoor furnace is the first furnace to meet and exceed testing requirements of the rigid B415. test standard. The B415 test standard measures both overall efficiency as well as emissions. You’ll be impressed with the test results:

Average Efficiency 87.2%
Low Heat Value (LHV) 90.7%
Btu Output-High 47,996
Btu Output-Low 13,779
Emissions gr/hr 3.3

Actual Btu Output can be increased up to 80,000 Btu’s based on wood size, species of wood, moisture content, times between reloading, and draft. Valley Comfort recommends a flue draft of .05” of water column.

High Efficiency

As a leader in the wood-burning furnace industry in Canada we are proud to present our VC 120. The VC 120 brings the latest available technology right into your home. Wood heat has always been a comfortable, reliable source of home heat. Our main objective in developing the VC 120 was to advance the state of the art, keeping in step with new technology. Environmental concerns are now shared by most people on a global scale. You can address those concerns on a personal level by assuring maximum efficiency in your wood-burning system and methods. Energy efficiency goes hand in hand with environmental protection. To that end, the VC 120 was developed to answer these modern day concerns while providing old-fashioned comfort, reliability and economy. The VC 120 is a high output wood furnace designed for large homes and small commercial installations. Your Valley Comfort dealer will assist you in choosing the correct size furnace for your needs. This furnace has been approved to the latest code requirements and can be used as an add-on to electric, gas or oil furnaces; or as an independent wood furnace with a suitable blower system.
Wood only or add-on to Gas, Electric or Oil
When used in combination with an alternate fuel furnace, you get the security and convenience of a back-up system. A unique "power out" capability has been built into the VC 120. This means you have a source of heat even if the house power should fail. Under power-out conditions, the furnace output is limited because there is no distribution fan, but using gravity flow, you will be assured of emergency warmth all the time. Economical installation costs have also been considered. The 7" top vent flue size reduces overall costs, as does the close clearance approvals for the plenum and duct system. At Valley Comfort, we feel that economy is a long-term consideration. We refuse to cut corners that would comprise our overall product quality. Long-term economy is assured by this commitment to quality. Valley Comfort has been built on this commitment and that is one reason we have been leaders in the industry since 1953.

How it works... Pre-heated secondary air is passed through to the top of the combustion chamber. This allows the unburned volatiles to ignite and greatly improves the efficiency of the heater. The combination of preheated primary air and preheated secondary air allows the heater to burn wood with greatly improved efficiency over wood burning heaters of old. The sensitive automatic thermostat allows you, at any time, to select the best temperature for your home comfort.

Safety...The Valley Comfort's air-supply is controlled by an automatic thermostat which is pre-set by the home-owner to provide the temperature level required. It automatically regulates the heat output - unlike the so-called heat regulators on most stoves. In case of a run-away fire it will shut off the air supply completely Reliability...Cast iron liners and metal parts made on precision dies all go towards a home heating system which lasts and lasts and lasts to give good reliable and trouble-free heating for the home?owner.
Convenience...Overnight burning time on one fill of 2' logs is usual with the Valley Comfort heater thanks to the special secondary combustion supply of preheated fresh air to burn wood gases. Efficiency...The unique patented 4-port air-supply system provides even burning of logs in the unit and the air convection system moves air around the house. Child-proof...Unlike radiant stoves, Valley Comfort heaters can be safe to a child's touch - an important feature when there are small children around.
