Hey folks, I'm new to the Forum so bear with me! I'm pretty excited about starting down the path of burning wood to hear my home in central Maryland. I have 3 old school fireplaces and my wife and three kids love using them but I know much of my heat goes right up the stack. Now that I'm looking at wood burning boilers, I'm at a crossroad. I know I need an EPA Phase 2 approved boiler but I can't decide between the two boilers listed above. Because I am a hyper researcher, I've read positive and 'not so' reviews on the boilers. Feedback that I saw when I googled 'Central Boiler problems' was: The spray foam insulation on the E2400 creates such a good seal that owners indicate there is a tendency to retain condensation that harbors corrosion. There are some pretty sobering horror stories about relatively new Central Boilers that corrode catastrophically and the owners are very frustrated because Central alleges that they burned un-seasoned wood or garbage. On the other hand, the Portage & Main units are different but require a bimonthly cleaning of the heat exchange tubes, something that would be nice to not have to do. Also, there are efficiencies on the EPA website that put the CB unit ahead of the P&M unit in terms of heat output. My goal is here in Maryland, where it rarely gets below 15 degrees at night, to heat my 3000 sf home with ONE load of wood per day. To you folks out there who have more experience than I, is that realistic in my temperature zone? Also, if I burned 1100 gallons of fuel oil last year, am I looking at 6, 8, 10, or 12 cords for this year? Sorry for the amateur questions but I'd love to have feedback on the boiler issue as well as consumption question. Thanks!
