Bullerjan Canadian Lumberjack Designed Stove

Over the holiday break, I spent many magical hours in front of the fireplace. The traditional wood fireplace is a beautiful thing that both creates ambiance and heats the space, but the fuel intake definitely leaves something to be desired. A day spent with the fire burning could easily use up an entire small tree while leaving the space cold after the fire burns out.

Many homes have incorporated the use of gas fireplaces to replace the visual of a fire while using an alternate source to do the actual heating. Efficiency is a major part of this decision, which is why the Bullerjan Free-Flow FF17 hot air furnace is a great solution. Developed by Canadian lumberjacks, the Bullerjan runs independent of oil, gas, and electricity. It guarantees a high-heat capacity with good circulation and an even burn up solely through the use of firewood and wood remnants. Efficiency is achieved through an almost complete wood combustion resulting in a low level of ash accumulation.

The rugged design has a beauty that reminds me of a high-end automobile. Form definitely follows function in the Bullerjan, with its solid steel pipes that feed the heavy-weight combustion chamber. The Classic Bullerjan looks like a modern stove for Uncle Tom’s Cabin, whereas the Design savvy Bullerjan Dot would be more appropriate in a modernist loft. And the ultra-powerful Free Flow FF18 has an oversized combustion chamber to heat larger spaces. The Bullerjan has a unique appearance that may not be for everyone, but its efficiency and warming capacity is worth a second look.

*Editor’s Note: While the exterior form of the Bullerjan has remained unchanged for 40 years, the combustion chamber has been redesigned to achieve greater efficiency and fewer emissions. It now meets all requirements of the BImScHV (in Germany) and Art. 15a (in Austria) without a catalyst.
