According to Sherwood Farm Group, Longwood furnaces were built to accommodate lengths of firewood up to about 5 feet. This unusual design feature was the source for the company's name. The high-efficiency burner on a Longwood Furnace has a heat output of 150,00 BTU according to the company's original marketing literature. The sales price was around $2,500 more than 25 years ago as of 2014, and the cost of installation through a heating contractor was an additional expense.

Longwood Furnace was a small manufacturing company in Missouri that sold its units through conventional dealers. After Longwood went out of business, Joe Dennis, a former salesman for the company, maintained a Longwood furnace-parts company until his death in 2000. His wife and daughter maintained the parts business through internet sales, but that business has also been discontinued as of 2014.
