The Cadillac of furnaces—now better than ever!
Advanced combustion technology and state-of-the-art design have earned the Caddy wood furnace a reputation as the cleanest, most efficient furnace ever produced by PSG—and with good reason! So how do you make a star product even better? With performance-enhancing electronics that take this flagship furnace to the next level.
- General Details
Streamlined electronics and controls
The electronic components and controls of the newly redesigned Caddy have been reduced to just three components for greater ease of use and efficiency:
- An integrated PC board and RTD probe to control blower speeds and plenum temperatures, optimizing home comfort and furnace performance.
- A blower assembly equipped with a prewired main power board for plug and play convenience upon installation.
- A touchscreen LCD control module to make input and output control a breeze.
A unique heat exchanger system and outstanding emissions performance
The secret behind the Caddy’s outstanding performance is its built-in heat exchanger system, which ensures that heat is transferred quickly and efficiently via the smoke ducts inside the furnace instead of being lost up the chimney. It uses up to 30% less firewood and reduces particulate emissions by as much as 80%. That’s great news for your heating bill—and the environment!
Alternate source of heat
With Caddy series furnaces, you’ll always have an alternate source of heat to ensure the comfort and safety of your family. The Caddy comes in four different configurations: wood-only, wood+electric combo, wood+oil combo, and wood add-on furnace.
NOTE: When installed as an add-on furnace, only a SERIES configuration is allowed in Canada.
The blower assembly is not required in a SERIES configuration.
Both PARALLEL and SERIES configurations are allowed in the USA.
- Wood only: This furnace can be installed as a wood-only unit. Blower box and fan limit kit required for this configuration.
- Wood and electric: This furnace can be installed as a wood+electric combo unit to ensure your central heating keeps running even when you’re not there to add more firewood. Electric element (fan limit kit included) required for this configuration.
- Wood and fuel oil: This furnace can be installed as a wood+oil combo to ensure your central heating keeps running even when you’re not there to add more firewood. Oil burner unit and blocked vent switch required for this configuration.
- Wood add-on: If you’ve already got an oil, gas, or electric central heating system but want to add the flexibility of wood, the Caddy wood add-on furnace is for you. This unit, which installs on either side of your existing system, uses the same controls and fan as your existing furnace, giving you a fully compatible wood+oil, wood+gas, or wood+electric combo system.

(1) Based on delivered heat output.
(2) Values are as measured per CSA B415.1-10, except for the recommended heating area, firebox volume, maximum burn time and maximum input capacity. Performances based on a fuel load prescribed by the standard at 10 lb/ft³ and with a moisture content between 18% and 28%.
(*) Recommended heating area and maximum burn time may vary subject to location in home, chimney draft, heat loss factors, climate, fuel type and other variables. The recommended heating area for a given appliance is defined by the manufacturer as its capacity to maintain a minimum acceptable temperature considering that the space configuration and the presence of heat distribution systems have a significant impact in making heat circulation optimum.
(3) Input value at 10 lb/ft³ fuel loading density and dry energy value of 8,600 BTU/lb.
(4) Overall : Radiated and delivered heat together at 10 lb/ft³ fuel loading density over one total burn cycle.
(5) Efficiency based on radiated and delivered heat when allowing cycling from high to low burn to simulate thermostat demand.
(6) Higher Heating Value of the fuel.
(7) Lower Heating Value of the fuel.
(8) Delivered: Remotely provided to other rooms through ducting at 10 lb/ft³ fuel loading density over one total burn cycle.
(9) Efficiency based on delivered heat when allowing cycling from high to low burn to simulate thermostat demand.
(10) Optimum overall efficiency at a specific burn rate (LHV).
(11) This appliance is officially tested and certified by an independent agency.
(12) Carbon monoxyde.
(13) Unless stated otherwise, measures were taken directly at the main power source and include all electrical components present in the appliance.
