Medium Medium refers to the substance that carries heat through the heating system. Systems are either designed to use either Hot Water or Steam as a medium, and components are usually specific to one or the other.
Fuel Type To create heat, some form of fuel is required. Fuel Type specifies what the product uses as an input to create heat.
Vent Type Products that use combustion (burning) of fuel to create heat also create potentially dangerous gasses that need to be exhausted (AKA "Vented"). Depending on the product, venting can be done via a chimney, through a side wall, or use a second vent to provide fresh air to the appliance.
DHW Production DHW (Domestic Hot Water) is potable water for uses other than space heat. Some boilers are able to provide DHW "out of the box", while others can do so with the purchase of optional accessories.
Biasi 3 Wood is traditional combustion cast iron hot water wood or coal burning boiler. Wood is a precious alternative energy source. Therefore, it is essential to use it in the best way possible, making use of suitable technologies for its combustion. 3Wood boilers are equipped with EN GJL 200 cast iron bodies designed to ensure maximum thermal yield and excellent draught. All BIASI boiler blocks are built in accordance with ASME boiler pressure vessel code, and bear the "H" stamp. The entire range of 3Wood Boilers have been tested to ETL standards. THE 3WOOD's water-cooled grates, large finned firebox and secondary combustion chamber maximize the burn time and minimize wood consumption. Easy adjustments to the automatic temperature control, secondary air regulator, and flue gas damper enhance fire maintenance.

Q: Are the Biasi 3-Wood boilers Phase II EPA certified? by Don from Michigan on February 24, 2016
A: To my knowledge the 3Wood Series boilers have not been Phase II certified. The only wood boilers we carry that I am certain have been through the certification process are some of the ProFab models, such as the Empyre Elite 817400 by Chris, Product Expert
Q: What is the difference between hard and soft coal and where is soft coal found? by Samuel from Pennsylvania on February 09, 2016
A: Hard coal, also called anthracite, generally has a higher fuel content and burns hotter than other varieties of coal. It also burns more cleanly producing less soot, ash, and smoke.
Soft coal, or bituminous coal, is more widely available and less expensive than hard coal. It is also easier to start.
Other types of coal are also available, but these are rarley used for space heating purposes.
The map linked below shows where the various types of coal are found. Hard coal is indicated with green, while soft coal is marked in red and yellow.
