Hello everyone, I am going to buy a wood heating boiler soon. I have been reading for a few days all the comments I can find on this forum to hopefully educate myself. I started looking for a OWB and after reading about gasification will not look back. I live on an 80 acre woodlot so firewood is not a problem. However I would much rather be crappie fishing than splitting wood! If I have extra wood I would rather ship to the paper mill and receive a check which I can use to buy more crappie minnows ;-)) We are presently using a propane boiler for the 1200sq/ft workshop (600 gallons) and an Accucraft fireplace for the 4800sq/ft house including finished basement. The house is well insulated but has a lot of windows (the three walls of the living room are almost all glass). We do have a Weil McClain propane boiler and water maker with hydronic in floor heating and a heat exchanger in the plenum for forced are in the upper level of the house also. We only use the in-floor and only in the lower level when guest arrive, otherwise it stays about 55 degrees with the fireplace. We burn 8 full cords of seasoned hardwood (primarily hard maple/yellow birch) in the fireplace each year. After reading messages on this site and talking with the manufactures and dealers I have the choices narrowed down to a EKO 80, Garn WHS 1500 , or Central Boiler E 2300. My question, does anyone on this forum use a E Classic 2300? I cannot find anyone in my area that has the 2100. I was told by Jim Sauffer at Garn that the EPA ratings do not necessarily reflect actual realized efficiency so I am curious. I should add that the reason for considering the E Classic is the self contained nature of the furnace without building a storage shed or the added water storage.
