Question about Heating & Cooling
I have a Global Hydronics GH4000 (coal/wood) unit and this weekend I found that it some serious leaks. I just called Hawken Energy (who I bought it from) and they directed me to Global Hydronics. The person at Global asked me to disassemble the unit to see if I could locate the leaks. I said I would remove the side panel and see if I could locate them and take pictures. I'll try to keep an open mind to this as GH said they would ''work with me''.
My advise is this: STAY AWAY from Global Hydronics, Bio Heat, Wood Doctor, and Hawken Energy. All negative stuff out there on them. See arboristsite dot com for more information that is being posted search for Hawken Energy, you'll find it. The only real solution is to sue these companies as they have neglected customers for years, over and over again. It has been posted that Hawken Energy uses an "independent" report that claims Hawken is the best in the business, they are not!!! By the looks of it, the owner of Hawken Energy made up this report and is using one of his other business to promote it. This is pathetic.
I say stay away from Global, Bio Heat, and Wood Doctor, as It would seem that Global hydronics makes them all, at least they all look alike, and the warranty complaints on the internet name these companies as being the worst. Hawken Energy once sold Global Hydronics units that they relabeled as their own, but did not tell the costumers this. I guess they even printed a flyer that changed the model numbers, but when you got the unit on your land it was a Global Hydronics and not a Hawken Energy. One or more of these companies is being sued now. Nothing good to say about one of these companies. The whole thread over at arboristsite should be read as it uncovers a lot of information these companies did not want the public to know about.

June 18th of 2009 (almost 1 year ago) I sent Hawken Energy an email with pictures of my leaking furnace. They deemed it unrepairable on-site and wanted me to ship it back to Canada. They would never even get anyone to come look at it. Two months ago they sent people out to photograph and possibly record my property without my knowledge. They then had the nerve to retract any previous (yet lacking) offers to settle out of court when they saw that the unit was still in operation. Had the fools ever had the respect to come and look at it when they were first invited a year ago they would have seen that this time the leak was on the outside of the unit and about 3/4 up the rear seem. So, it holds about 3/4 of the amount of water that it should because the rest comes out (leak, leak, leak...) I also burned about 3-4 more chord this year because of the lack of reserve water. This is my 4th leak with two units within 4 years. I ordered a Hawken Energy built HE1000, I was delivered a Global Hydronics built GH-1000. There never has been a HE-1000 except in a fantasy book the owners of Hawken Energy created. Now Global Hydronics seems to be footing the attorneys for my suite against Hawken Energy and they are threatening to sue me. What a bunch of worthlesss #@%$#%. I am continuing my action against Hawken Energy as well as when this matter is resolved all documents we've obtained are going straight to the MI A.G. and the Federal A.G. office. I feel they crossed the line by spying on my family when they were invited almost a year ago to come fix the problem with their Hawken Energy OWB. They never showed. And I'm the one "making false claims"? good luck with that one Hawken. I'll be creating a new post at arboristsite.com this weekend outlining this mess in detail. We have been damaged enough financially by this nightmare ordeal I will not be harassed as well. I feel people deserve to know the truth behind what has been going on with these guy's. They even tried to get me to sign a dissparagence clause in a settlement offer that would have made me remove any and all posts about Hawken and Global as well as never be able to comment on this waste of a problem without the threat of litigation. Will they stop at nothing to line their pocketbooks? I GOT SCREWED BY HAWKEN ENERGY!!! PLAIN AND SIMPLE!!! I have spent thousands fighting this and have not even seen a judge yet. I only wait to get to trial and testimony will be set under oath. The truth will come out. HAWKENGLOBALYUK

The reason they want you to ship it for repair is so you will forget about it !
You are correct its from Manitoba , its part of a Religious cult colony that is building them , and somehow part of the Rock Church out there, I saw one of the owners in a show in USA in 2009 , he and his buddies were joking about how many they can pump out under different names, all old second class steel . they offer 30 year warranty , I got one of the owners cards, some German guy Arthur Turple from Truro Nova Scotia , he has many names I find.www.wooddoctorfurnace.com www.outdoorwoodfurnaces.ca and all owned by Outside Heating Systems Ltd . I think is like this so he can loose on a class action suit !!! so I see he selling all stock as fast as he can and under cut his DEALERS even Wood Doctor !

Usually leaqks comes from two sources one from the vent that may be closed with dirts or from the condensing unit that is building ice and that may need to be cleaned too. open the unit and start it and see where the water coming from does it buid on the bottom and if you can see if you have any dirts...ssometime th ehole is too small see if you can make new one big
