Thermal Storage TanksTHermal
Thermal storage is an important aspect of any hydronic system and while it is not required that you use it with an Econoburn, we certainly recommend it. Thermal storage is essentially just a large hot water buffer tank that separates the wood boiler and zones of the heating system.
Here are a few reasons as to why thermal storage is so important:
Highest efficiency + lowest emissions
Thermal storage allows the Econoburn to burn the entirety of its wood-fuel in the firebox, at the highest possible temperature, without having to slow down or stop the fan in the boiler. By burning the entire load in one “batch burn”, the amount of gasification that takes place in the system is increased.
-Having thermal storage available gives you and your family the peace of mind that you will always have hot water available – whether it be for heating your house or your domestic hot water.
-Depending on tank size, you can go 2-3 days without re-filling the Econoburn with wood!
Lifespan of the boiler
While each Econoburn Boiler comes standard with a 25-year warranty that protects you against any manufacturing defects, incorporating a thermal storage tank into your system can significantly increase the lifespan of any closed-system boiler.
