Wood has long been used as a readily available and relatively cheap source of fuel. Traditionally, wood has been the only real alternative to electricity, oil, and gas.

In conventional wood fired boilers, after the initial burning of the fuel, a large amount of combustible gas is released.  This gas accounts for an amazing 50% of the wood fuel energy.

Unfortunately, due to inefficient combustion, conventional wood boilers fail to capitalize on
this abundant fuel energy;  in fact most of it is lost up the flue!

Econoburn™ wood boilers utilize a combustion technology called 'Gasification'  to capture,
extract and transfer this energy that typical wood boilers simply waste.

As the wood is burned in the firebox, fresh air is blown downwards through the logs and coals.  As this hot smoke and air mixture is forced into the combustion chamber, it is mixed with a second jet of super-heated air.
This results in a torch like combustion of the retained gases, at
spectacular temperatures exceeding 1800 degrees.

The result: almost all the gases are burned, with little residual soot or creosote, and the extra energy extracted is transferred to a full jacket
heat exchanger.  This extraordinary process allows Econoburn™
boilers to achieve overall thermal efficiencies of nearly 90%!

This translates quite simply into more hot water for heating and
domestic uses, almost complete fuel efficiency, and
significant savings in your yearly fuel bill.

Applications and Installations

In your home or business, Econoburn™ wood gasification boilers can be:

1)  Installed as the main boiler; or

2)  Easily integrated with your existing heating and domestic hot water system, creating an
      auto-backup system.  This allows your existing heating equipment to conveniently run
      when you are unable to reload your Econoburn™ boiler with fuel.

Econoburn™ boilers are compatible with most popular heating systems, including existing boiler systems
for baseboard, forced air, in floor, and separate unit heaters popular in commercial installations.

Our boilers can also be integrated with your water heater system to supply your domestic, or industrial hot water
needs. As well, we can provide heat exchangers for recreational devices such as pools and hot tubs.

Check out the diagrams below.

Existing Boiler Systems

The Econoburn™ unit can be directly hooked up to any existing boiler, supplying the heated water to the system, utilizing existing pumps and thermostat controllers, while the existing boiler remains as a backup, ready to engage
when the Econoburn™ unit can not be reloaded with fuel. wood boiler woodboilers wood burning boilers

Forced Air Systems

By installing our optional heat exchanger in the ductwork above your existing exchanger, our Econoburn™ boiler can integrate seamlessly with your gas or oil forced air heating system.  When you are away, your existing thermostats will trigger
your old system back into action until you return.
