Iâ€™ve decided to install an Eko 40 with 1000 gallons of storage to my place in Montana. Overall, my choice of an Eko boiler is based on the vast amount of information on their operation that is available. It seems all gasifiers require tweaking and ingenuity, having the information resource is vital. Additionally, the Eko appears to have a good track record. It reminds me of the small block Chevy. The load will be a 36 X 36 high ceiling shop adjacent to a two story 20 X 36 residence (ground floor utility room, art studio, entry + upstairs living area) with a DHW HX. I also want some potential for an expansion of a 24 X 36 guest cottage. The Eko 40 with storage will meet those needs with reasonable reload periods. Fuel is mostly pine and fir. Calculation fit the boiler size. Iâ€™ll install this myself, augmenting the current electric boiler supplying the residence with staple up hydronic that has worked very well. The shop will use a large Modine exchanger. A few puzzles I have are as follows: Currently I run an RV type glycol mix in the hydronic system. Iâ€™m not opposed to keeping to this in the new system, even at the added cost, for system and freeze protection but I wonder if this may cause issues I unaware of. Iâ€™m interested in other alternative suggestions. Since this is a new installation, I want to use the latest in valves and pumps. So, Iâ€™m looking for recommendations as to models, manufacturers and sources. Like anyone, Iâ€™m looking for simplicity and durability. Iâ€™d ask for input on one other issue. Iâ€˜m looking for suggestions on a good inverter for backup power. Iâ€™ll run a bank of 4 deep cycle batteries with solar/generator charging capability. But Iâ€™m not familiar as to how refined the systemâ€™s power supply is for pump motor operation and electronics. I have experienced that some motors perform poorly on conventional inverter power. Input welcome on this concern. I appreciate any and all input.
