    I have an EKO 60 in my basement,the house is an 1875 farm house and it still has the dirt floors in the boiler room I am getting build up of dust on my fan blades, I have scratched them off clean once this season already..Do you think a house furnace filter or an old K&N;automotive filter over the fan shutters may help with this issue??Dave

    Are you sure it is coming from the house into the blower? Or could it be coming back out of the combustion chambers during puff backs?

    I have not disemboweled the blower on my Econoburn 150 yet (peeked at it, just did not dig into it) but I'd be more inclined to wash the impeller every now and then than to restrict airflow into it.
