An outdoor wood boiler is a wood-fired water heater that is located outside. The fires in the large fire boxes heat water that is circulated through underground pipes into a building or home. The energy may be used to heat homes, domestic hot water, greenhouses, swimming pools, and more. The units produce dense smoke because they have short stacks that disperse smoke poorly.
