 residential wood furnace use?

Whats your take on the use and opertation in a semi residential area? I live in the county but my dead end road has 24 houses on it in a 3/4 mile length. I now have two neighbors with wood burning furnaces. I just came in from walking/playing wiuth the Lab for 15 min. and I smell horribly! I am not against em, I plan to have one again in two years or less when I move. BUT This will be in a rural setting. I can not believe how nasty they are when they are not yours!. Im telling you, I I was not moving soon, I really dont know what I would do! Almsot to the point of taking matters in my own hands. This ruins our quality of life to a level that is scary. I open the door to let the dog out and the whole living room smells for an hopur. NO, it dont smell like a nice hickory burning smell but more like a PUNKY garbage crap smell.

Nuff of my rant, I will be taking this up with the Village board at the next meeting. I figure even if they cant do anything about my problem, maybe they can eliminate some one eles in the future!
Merry Christmas all!
(PS) You all know this TEE'S me off to write this on Christmas!

Broken; I do know that wood burning and or corn stoves/furnaces have been outlawed within the city limits in a small town neighboring ours for that very reason, the smell. And I know it is being discussed by the council in our town now.

Are they the outdoor wood furnaces, or indoor wood furnace?
Indoor furnaces will usually produce less smoke, and the owners will usually only burn good stuff to stop creosote buildup and chimney fires. Outdoor furnaces can burn whatever to churn out BTU's, you just have to keep them honest and report them if they burning crap and trash.

Their is no doubt that wood/corn/pellet burning appliances will be banned in the future in the suburbs. I just hope that they don't apply the regulations across the board to include rural homes. They did this with vehicle emissions, city and rural cars/trucks have to be tested even though the air quality issue is an urban problem. It's a shame that I don't get a credit for my approx. 5000 trees that are cleaning the air.

Nostirner; Both, I think. I haven't personally saw it,or even know where it is, but I've been told of someone around here who built a homemade outdoor furnace with lids on the top that he can dump fuel in with a loader. He could burn anything that will fit thru the top. Frank.

I'd better restate my answer to Nosteiner. Now that I think about it I'm not sure if all wood/corn burners in the neighboring town have been banned of if no new insallations are allowed. Frank.

Not living where the out door furnaces are common have a couple of questions: what is burnt that gives off such a foul smell? Does the furnaces used to burn true garbage give off foul orders or their stack tall enough to get it about nose level? Is what they are burning that gives off the foul smell allowed to be burnt by the EPA in such a furnace?

We live in a rural area and won't install one of those outdoor woodburner specifically because of the smoke. We don't even like to burn slash because of the smoke. Irritated eyes, sore throats, coughing, and the endless smell just aren't worth the savings.

I have a guy 20 acres down the road, i live on 5 of those, who has an outdoor wood furnace. He burns all sorts of crap and the smell of burning trash and rubber was coming into my gas furnace outside fresh air vent. Now i plugged up that line and draw the air from the basement only. Any one with a newer furnace that draws in fresh air from the outside is just sucking in bad air from an outdoor wood furnace. Now with my indoor wood furnace, my gas furnace never comes on unless i'm out of town or something.

Our house is very tight so we have to bring in a continuous supply of fresh air through an ERV. Those do some filtering but they won't take smoke out of the air, so whenever burning is done the smell fills the house. So.. no burning here. The few times I've tried the wind always changes direction and blows right at the house So Sad
