Designed for use in residential and light commercial applications (outputs from 100,000 to one million BTUs), Econoburn’s wood-fueled boiler is a closed-loop system with an innovative gasification process that delivers an 87% thermal efficiency rating. Unlike its “open” counterparts, Econoburn pressurized, indoor-certified boilers feature downdraft, forced induction into a secondary combustion chamber that allows for greater heat generation and retention. The result is cleaner, less expensive energy without having to depend on oil, though with Econoburn’s integrated design, oil or gas can always be utilized when necessary (which is rare).
The Econoburn™ boiler is:
Of the most popular heating fuels, wood comes out on top, especially when used in a high-efficiency Econoburn wood-fueled boiler which delivers a real combustion efficiency of 87%. This makes the operating costs substantially lower than with other systems. With free access to your own wood supply, an Econoburn boilers delivers unbeatable cost savings!
Econoburn wood-fueled boilers use substantially less wood — often just half that of our competitors’ models — to produce high volumes of heat and hot water. While Econoburn boilers can effectively burn any type of pre-cut cord wood or scrap lumber, wood with an average moisture content between 13 and 22 percent yields optimum performance.
Choosing the appropriate boiler depends on the size of your home or building, its location (cold climates require more heat), and its specific construction. For example, the size, type, number of windows and doors, and the amount of wall/ceiling insulation all contribute to a structure’s heat loss, thus its boiler sizing as well. Your Econoburn representative can help you find the precise model to suit your requirements.
