    Anyone out there with experience on Aquatherms eco one retrofit? For less than $1000 they offer a new baffle, and door with blower for secondary combustion. Just weighing my options for increasing efficiency and reducing emissions without springing for a gasification unit.

    I don't know DC, I've always heard that out of any of the OWB's aquatherm was the worst.

    dc call dave at aqua-therm if you hav'nt. i talked with awhile back. its not available for my 145 yet. you may be able to use old door by welding on blower attachment. i like my 145 and have seen many worse. i like the fact that its either at idle of full throttle. will play around next winter if not available for mine by then. shouldn't be too hard as it is fan induced. good luck

    I haven't actually tried to order one, just looked at a new eco-one to see the changes. Yeah i thought of doing the mod myself also. my local dealer did offer to sell one to me at their cost to be the guinea pig as they have not sold any yet. Also burning chunk, i would say my aqua therm is less of a smoker than most of the owb's around here like mahonings, centrals, ...but then i don't try to burn garbage, tires, and deer bones like some of my neighbors. Unfortunately, these things have made rural disposal practices drop done a couple of notches.

    it looks to me the eco one does have a diff. door and not just the baffle on top. the door has 2-3 holes for air at bottom of door and one at top that goes into the baffle when door is closed. so air is coming under the fire on back of boiler and in the door into fire and baffle two blowers on the eco one. i think this baffle just mixes the gasses more than just giving the fire some air. who knows if it works to decrease the smoke.

    I just talked to my buddy yesterday that has one of the aquatherm non-gassifiers and he is pissed he bought it. He can't put wood in it fast enough.

    I'll ask which unit he has.

    It's not a big house, I'm guessing 2K square feet or less. I'll ask him.
