Early Project Planning – Is A High Efficiency Wood Boiler Right For You?

At our Econoburn factory along the shoreline of Lake Erie here in Western New York, we receive thousands of inquiries from like-minded folks, homeowners and business owners from all over North America each year.

The questions most asked are:  Will it lower my heating bill?  Will it make me energy independent?  What effort is required to maintain the boiler?  These are all fair questions and as heating geeks we love to answer them.


So, let’s start with the basics:

We start by determining feasibility.  This may seem obvious but there are basic considerations to be taken into account up front:

  • Do you have access to, and the ability and time to handle firewood?
  • Does your home have forced air or water-based heat now?
  • Have you checked local codes and/or checked with your insurance carrier?

If you answered Yes to two out of three questions, you’re Econoburn-ready!  The rest can be worked out, especially as you’re already interested if not firmly committed to becoming fossil fuel free on your own terms.

Next step: Your project planning.

A local Econoburn dealer or Heating Professional evaluates your heating situation based on your present and future heating needs. This includes your current heat distribution scheme, usage, objectives and ultimately how your lifestyle works to see if a wood-fueled boiler can save you money and deliver the peace of mind that comes with clean living and fuel independence.

They can design an integration plan to meet your particular needs, recommend the right boiler and configuration, show you how the system works along with its basic requirements.

It’s all in the installation.

With the right planning, installations can include other unique heating areas (zones) to heat hot tubs, swimming pools, driveways, man-caves or other novel applications in addition to standard home and domestic water heating.  Installation typically takes 1-3 days depending on options chosen.

With high thermal efficiency, our closed system, EPA-Certified wood fueled boilers can save thousands of dollars in heating costs each year and let you enjoy a truly clean and comfortable lifestyle while declaring your energy independence.

Econoburn offers REEL financing that in many cases allows the monthly payment to be made by the savings generated by the Econoburn Boiler.
