F.A.Q. Answers:

Which Econoburn™ wood boiler model will I need to provide sufficient heat for my application?

Boiler sizing is based on the size of your home or building, the location of your home or building (colder climates require more heat), and your home or building’s construction.

For example, the size, type, and number of windows and doors, and the amount of insulation in the walls and ceilings, contribute to your home’s heatloss (and boiler sizing) in addition to the overall size of the structure and its geographic location.

Use the chart below as a rough guide to boiler sizing. You can also examine the BTU rating of your existing heating appliance for a good benchmark. Call us today to discuss your home or building’s heating needs. (970) 275-9432.
