HeatMaster G-Series vs. Portage & Main Boilers

Product Comparison

1. Efficiency

Most Efficient Outdoor Wood Boiler

HeatMaster G-Series boilers tested 10% more efficient than Portage & Main in EPA Phase II certification testing! That means for every 10 pieces of wood you burn in a P & M boiler, you will only burn 9 in a HeatMaster.

2. Longevity

HeatMaster outdoor wood boilers are made of corrosion resistant 409 stainless steel while P&M boilers use mild steel.

HeatMaster products only have vertical heat exchange tubes while Portage & Main boilers have horizontal heat exchange tubes which can accumulate moisture along the bottom causing corrosion, especially in mild steel units.
