A great time for Econoburn at the F.W. Webb Vermont Expo. Econoburn’s top new EPA certified boilers were featured: EBW200-170 & EBW200-170W models. Everyone there was hot for the new products!
Econoburn is pleased to announce the release of its new EPA certified line of gasification boilers. Check out more information on our website at www.econoburn.com or call us at 1-866-818-5162.
The wood boiler landscape will be changing dramatically very soon as the number of wood boilers that can lawfully be sold in the U.S. will be sharply reduced to the few remaining units that are able to pass the approved tests for reduced particulate and gaseous emissions.
If you, or someone you know, has been considering the purchase of a wood gasification boiler we would like you to know that the standard Econoburn models EBW-100, EBW-150, and EBW-200 will only be available for purchase for a limited time.
The US EPA’s New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) were entered into the Federal Register on March 16th, 2015 after nearly a decade of development going back to the US EPA’s Phase I and Phase II Voluntary Programs adopted by several of the Northeastern States going back as far as 2008.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and Vincent’s Heating and Fuel Service have 15 commercial and residential high-efficiency, low-emission wood pellet-fired heating projects and the availability of bulk pellet delivery in the Mohawk Valley and North Country, according to a NYSERDA press release.
Said John B. Rhodes, president and CEO of NYSERDA. “These wood-fired heating projects demonstrate that New Yorkers who want to burn wood for heat are taking advantage of new, cleaner technology that saves money, and benefits the environment and the economy.” Continue reading
Thank you to everyone who came and visited us at the New York Farm Show this past weekend (Feb 26-28) at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, NY. Whether you were from the city of Syracuse, the surrounding countryside, the North East or the rest of the country we hope the exhibit for our recently NYSERDA approved Wood-Fuel Boiler was both informative and educational. We hope to be hearing from you soon!

Two interesting developments surfaced over holiday season, the big story being the collapse of oil. With the steep decline recently falling to the $50 a barrel, energy market dynamics are being turned upside down. If it goes below $40 the economy really starts taking a hit despite cheap gas at the pump or lower heating oil costs for consumers. If it continues to go lower, look out for a rough start to 2015 in the energy markets.
One thing you can be sure of is that oil prices will eventually recover from these artificially suppressed prices, but it’s clear that price volatility is here to stay, especially given current geopolitical developments. This time last year a gallon of propane reached $4.00 in much of the Northeast, mostly due to regional scarcity; it has been in decline ever since and now sits at around $3.00 per gallon, but for how long? Guess what, you’d still be saving more on heating your home with an Econoburn wood-fueled boiler at either price point. Continue reading
Econoburn delivers more heat for less wood
Last year it was snow; it managed to stay around for 58 straight days.
This year it’s the cold: bone chilling, slap your face cold (5 degrees at this writing). And snow with a nice icy glaze.
Well at least heating oil costs are down, right? One year ago today home heating oil was indeed $1.25 p/gallon higher statewide, even higher Upstate.
So enjoy low heating oil prices for now…or consider the day oil inevitably goes back up. In fact, even at current prices, the seasonal cost of heating with a wood-fired boiler can still be up to 50% less than burning fossils and polluting the air around you.
As safe to operate as a hot water heater, Econoburn indoor and outdoor units utilize a wood gasification process that operates at high temperatures to burn cleaner and more efficiently with virtually no waste, including minimal smoke, creosote and ash.
It gives homeowners a new found level of energy independence with wood, nature’s oldest renewable resource that when burned releases about the same amount of CO2 as decomposing wood does lying in the forest.
In other words, with an Econoburn wood-fired boiler keeping you warm and toasty this winter, you and thousands of your neighbors are doing your part in winning the race for energy independence (and save money).
After several years of development and anticipation, the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA) rolled out the full details of the Renewable Heat NY program this past July. This program provides significant financial incentives (up to $8,000) for customers converting to high-efficient, low-emission wood boilers and/or replacing their older and inefficient outdoor wood boilers with this advanced technology. Please see the attached program General Fact Sheet.
Econoburn is currently one of only two advanced cordwood boilers that qualify under this program. This program also includes advanced Pellet Boilers and Pellet Stoves which may also be of benefit to your business.
To ensure the success of this innovative program, NYSERDA requires that installers desiring to participate in this program complete specific training for biomass boiler installations. These 1-day training events have been created by and will be conducted by John Siegenthaler, P.E. of Appropriate Designs in Holland Patent, NY.
The next regional training school will be held in the western region of the state on:
Tuesday April 8, 2015 8:00am to 5:00pm
Holiday Inn – Downtown Binghamton – NY.
For registration details see: http://www.nyserda.ny.gov/Contractors/Become-a-Contractor/Renewable-Heat-NY-Contractors
We highly encouraging everyone to attend this training session so that you can begin conducting installations as soon as possible to meet consumer demand generated by NYSERDA’s aggressive marketing efforts. In fact, Econoburn will credit you the class fee. If you’ve missed the other regional schools we hope you’ll seriously consider attending this one. It will prove to be a great opportunity to bolster your hydronics knowledge and future profits as well!
Please do not hesitate to call with any questions.

Cody and Koliss Carr have built a thriving business in the rugged landscape of Sanders County, Montana. Hunting Adventures is primarily a big game hunting outfit but also entertains hikers, fishermen and others escaping the daily grind of urban life.
The company recently expanded, so in early 2013 the Carrs decided to put an end to the organization challenges by building a central shop with garage bays, a tack room, office space, a bathroom and storage. The challenge was to determine the best way to heat the new shop space in addition to the Carr home and guest lodge.
“There’s no shortage of dead, standing wood here since the mountain pine beetle has been attacking large tracts of forest,” Carr explains. “We needed a shop and I’ve always wanted a wood-fired heating system.” Continue reading
Econoburn Increases Energy Efficiency and Saves Money with RHNY
About five years ago the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began to develop a new set of performance standards for outdoor wood boilers. The old test was inaccurate and outdated especially given a new wave of low water mass boilers emerging in the market, many with new designs and technologies.
Enter the Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, NY, part of the US Department of Energy (DOE). Formerly under the Atomic Energy Commission, Brookhaven Labs is the lead research and development arm of DOE, with facilities scattered throughout the country and home to seven Nobel laureates.
They requested the Econoburn wood-fueled boiler as part of their goal to develop a test network of standards for the best equipment in the world.
