What does the FireStar Combustion Controller do?

The FireStar Combustion Controller optimizes the gasification process which results in burning 30 to 50% less wood than with traditional methods. The controller also has E-Link technology which allows you to connect your outdoor furnace to the internet where you can monitor it from anywhere in the world. It will even send you a text message if you run out of wood.

The FireStar Combustion Controller monitors all functions of the furnace and optimizes the gasification process automatically.

Working much like a car's engine control unit (ECU), the FireStar optimizes furnace performance by using sensors to decide how to control and independently adjust the primary and/or secondary air. By adding the right amount of air in the right place at the right time, the controller is able to optimize the gasification process to achieve the cleanest and most efficient burn possible.

The FireStar Combustion Controller is loaded with features designed to make operating your Central Boiler outdoor furnace easier and more convenient than ever before.

Setting Up Your FireStar is Quick and Easy

It's easy to stay connected to your outdoor furnace. The FireStar includes integrated wi-fi, so you won't have to run cables from the furnace to your house. Here are the basic steps you'll need to take:*

  • Connect to your wi-fi network (a step-by-step guide is provided in the Owner's Manual and is also available at the Online Support Center)
  • Create an online account with your furnace serial number at MyFireStar.com

*There are a few basic things you'll need: internet access, a wireless router and a data plan. You also need to make sure your furnace has the FireStar controller with integrated wi-fi and software version 6.6 or higher. New Central Boiler outdoor furnaces feature this controller standard; for other Central Boiler outdoor furnace models with a FireStar II controller, you may be able to purchase an optional FireStar XP module to enable the furnace to work with the FireStar system (see your dealer for more information).
