Efficient and handsome, the JUCA B-3B will blend in with any
decor. The versatility of being able to install it
upstairs, downstairs, in an attached garage, or in a cellar;
of using it as a room heater, as an add-on furnace, or as a
separate furnace; of being able to enjoy the fire through a
large glass door (except in model B-3A); make it the best
product on the market. Since it has the capability of
heating even very large houses, and since the firebox is
large enough to take giant pieces of wood, you get long,
even, constant heating just like with a regular furnace.
You just don't have to pay for the gas, oil, or electricity!
JUCA Free-Standing Wood/Gas Furnaces
and other sizes of JUCA Free-Standing Stoves
Our most popular free-standing model has proven its ability to completely
heat many thousands of homes all across the U.S. for over
20 years. Combining the performance of a wood-burning furnace,
the installation convenience and economy of a woodstove,
and the fire-viewing of a fireplace, the B-3B is the
ultimate in wood-burners. The blower-driven warm air that comes out the
adjustable side outlets and/or the duct system seems like it
was produced by a gas furnace ... you can't tell that
it wasn't! Safe, comfortable, clean air to evenly heat your
house. No cold drafts along the floor. Users often remark
that then comfort level with a JUCA is far better than that
with gas or oil heat, and they save money, too. With
appropriate (optional) blowers, B-3Bs are heating spaces ranging from
400 square feet to over 5,000 square feet in all climate
areas of the U.S.A. Clearly the most versatile wood burner on
the market. And the best performing. So effective that JUCA
that a B-3B can fully heat ANY single-family
house in the U.S.A! And very clean burning, too.
Reasonably priced, at
For a better view of the JUCA B-3B
When the JUCA B-3B is used with a 24" set of gas logs, the
appearance is exactly that while using wood. The enjoyment
of watching the flickering fire through the glass door is
wonderful. While this is happening, the 90,000 Btu/hr
burner is creating enough heat to be heating the whole house!
A variety of log styles are even available, from Mountain
Oak to Twisted Cypress to White Birch. Various accessory
control systems can use a wall thermostat to cycle the burner
on and off like a gas furnace or be controlled by a handheld
remote control. The automatic operation of the fire
cycling on and off is a popular option so that the JUCA
fireplace acts as the house's central heating system.
It's great to have this mode of operation while gas prices
are reasonable while still having the capability of heating
the whole house with wood if something silly happens again
in the Mideast. The best of both worlds!
The firebox bottom is lined with
castable firebrick. A
slide draft control
under the door can adjust the fire.
Dozens of optional colors
are available for the top half
to liven up a room; however matte black is standard. Our
standard blower is nice and
powerful and is automatically controlled by a
built in temperature probe. The
are even stronger (up to 3/4 hp), and one of them is
usually necessary when feeding central heating ducts to heat
a whole house.
Adjustable air outlets
on both sides also send warm air out into the room, down along
the floor where it does the most good. Our
use high temperature glass, but we also include a
metal inner safety panel
that slides into place when the unit is unattended (while you're
at work or asleep) to make sure large logs can't shift and
crash into the glass. We believe that JUCAs are the only
glass-doored wood burners with this extra safety feature.
Blower is 115 volt.
Whereever a JUCA is installed, you get remarkably even,
comfortable, long-lasting heat everywhere in your house.
You eliminate your regular heating fuel bill.
It feels great to carry wood to your JUCA when you know that
each armload saves you about $3.00 (or more) on your heating
bill. There are no cold drafts, even at floor level. The
built-in computer-assisted-design heat exchanger is so efficient
that you get more usable heat with less wood burned.
In recent years, gas and oil prices have been tolerable. As
long as this situation continues, a set of gas logs may be used
inside the JUCA. Then, you get all the performance benefits of
the JUCA heat exchangers. You get the coziness of a woodstove.
You get the ambiance of watching a fire. (It just doesn't
get any better than that!) And when, some day in the future
gas or oil shortages occur, you could convert it to using
wood in just a couple of minutes.
The units have
two adjustable side warm air outlets.
All but the K-3 also have a large outlet that can feed a
house central heating duct system to send heat to the entire house.
Standard color- Matte black, with
many optional colors
available for the top half;
Castable firebrick bottom;
blower turns on and off
Our most popular JUCA, this unit has a large glass door and
a huge firebox for using 8" - 9" diameter full logs.
GUARANTEED TO HEAT YOUR HOUSE.
Identical to the B-3B except that the glass door is replaced
by a thick steel door, for installations in cellars or
garages where it will not be desirable to see the fire burn.
GUARANTEED TO HEAT YOUR HOUSE.
A smaller version of the B-3B. The B-3J will still fully
heat nearly any normal sized and insulated house, but the
firebox is a little smaller which gives slightly shorter
burn times; but it takes up less space.
A smaller yet version of the B-3B that is meant for heating
a specific open area without ducts. It operates on a
slightly different principle than the other JUCAs and is
therefore slightly less efficient. This is the only free-standing
JUCA unit that does NOT have provision to feed the house
central warm air duct system.
