Nature’s Comfort reviews for interested consumers
“Great temporary heat while building”
While building our 1520 square foot home 2 years ago, we used an NCB-120 to heat it before the the natural gas furnace got hooked up. We had a large water-to-air heat exchanger and fan located in the basement. It was connected to the boiler with insulated pipe going out a basement window to the boiler located nearby. When we first hooked up the boiler, the house wasn’t insulated, and yet the house was comfortable to work in. Once the house got insulated, it was always warm. The 120 did a great job of providing heat so the drywallers, trim carpenters and painters could get their work done in November and December Michigan weather conditions. The 120 boiler is the equivalent of the “little engine that could.”
“I absolutely love my NCB-250-COAL”
I just wanted to say that I absolutely love the NCB-250-COAL that I recently purchased. Randy from Wood Heating Solutions was very knowledgeable about any questions I had regarding the units I was looking at. I only have used the unit a few times, but so far I am very satisfied with the performance!
