Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): | House Size (Sq feet): 3200
Bought in 2008 , Price Paid: 5500
Location : , MI , USA

Likes: Very robust boiler.
Excellent controls.
Has the ability to run right out of the box or you can tweak to your hearts content.
Very clean burn.
Excellent value for the money.

Dislikes: My only complaint with the EKO is the upper door seal. I believe current units (2011+) have an upgraded door seal standard. But back in the late 2000's they were using a fiberglass seal that was terrible. It leaked relentlessly. With an upgraded door seal the EKO is fantastic.

Comments: I'd highly recommend this boiler to anyone. Furthermore, I'd receommend any gasser be installed indoors to maximize efficiency and ease of use.
