2400 Up & Running
« on: November 18, 2015, 07:09:26 PM »
Thought I would update on how the new 2400 is running after one week. I replaced my 2008 e-classic 2300 with a e-classic 2400. The new furnace seems to burn hotter leaving a finer fly ash than the 2300 did. The amount of wood it uses @ this time & outside temperature appears to be about 1/4 less. I know its early in the heating season but this is my first impression. There are many new improvements that make the furnace more user friendly, Example, lower by-pass door handle opens easier, hinged reaction chamber door, removable air hole plates in the firebox will aid in cleaning and keeping the air flowing, Pulse air when demand is low keeps the coals burning. There are more but for now I'm quite pleased with the furnace.

You're making me jealous.  Stop it!

Be sure to brush the vertical heat exchangers once/month.  Most noticeable maintenance item affecting wood consumption (efficiency) IMO.
E-Classic 2400 comfortably heating 4,200 sq.ft. and unlimited DHW, Off-grid, Photovoltaic-powered pumps in gloomy SW PA , 34 t splitter, numerous Husky chainsaws
