fishman, By experience I have found wood that has been cut for two years does not mean it is dry. Gasifiers really shine with dry wood. Another thing I have found is ash build up around the nozzle will cause a lot of bridging. The ash build up is usually accelerated by above moisture wood. It still burns but adds char and ash around the nozzle and prevents good burning and seldom gets good and hot until it gets dry enough. If it starts bridging before you get it dry enough you will have a hard time getting good heat. My EKO40 is in an unheated outbuilding and I don't have storage and my very old home is heated via an air heat exchanger in an old oil furnace. I get 8-12 hour burns but I went through some stuff to get there but in essence I use my EKO like it is an OWB. Just for heat purposes, and if you could, I would bypass the storage and see if the boiler will heat your home.
