OUTDOOR WOOD BOILER: Modified Blower Fan Boosts Performance

Sometimes tinkering can make good things happen. The blower fan upgrade on my outdoor wood boiler is a case in point. The stock fan that came with my Portage & Main unit did a good job most of the time, but sometimes the boiler just seemed to need more air. Sometimes, but not always.
