To use the External Heater place it directly next to the furnace, then using the Engineer's Hammer right click on the External Heater to turn the input port (a yellow square spot) on the side clicked on, sneaking and right clicking turns on the opposite side, and place power on the input port. Once powered use the Vanilla Minecraft furnace to smelt as one would normally, but without needing to place burnable materials, such as Coal or Wood Planks, in the bottom slot of the furnace.
The External Heater initially uses 32 RF/t to heat the furnace until it reaches maximum temperature then it will only use 8 RF/t to maintain the temperature.

The External Heater can be kept on by using a redstone signal.
