If you have no leaks then your water temps are too cold. Central Boiler now requires the installation of a thermostatic valve in the lines that cuts off flow to the the heat exchanging units at (I think?) 180 degrees and returns the flow back to the boiler. For reasons unknown to me some designs are worse than others. I have operated a 4400 Woodmaster for 7 years and have never seen water condense in it when warming up, cooling down or operating BUT we also never burn green wood and our wood is stored under cover. I helped a neighbor install a Central Boiler last fall and was AMAZED at the water that pooled up in it when we fired it up. He hates that stupid valve, and so do I but if you by pass it your warranty is voided.

When I was researching which outdoor wood furnace to purchase I saw a lot of discussion on forums surrounding rust and corrosion issues due to condensation on Central Boiler (may just be certain models?). Rather than take a chance, I avoided and had a difficult time deciding between a Hardy, and the Heatmaster SS I purchased. So far I have not really regretted my decision, other than the guy I purchased from and his shoddy installation. Wish I would have known a little more on how simple they are to install, and I could have avoided about $1500 in cost - some of which was to hire my furnace/sheet metal guy to fix the mess and do it right where they heat exchanger was in my furnace ducting. I also had to end up adding a plate heat exchanger as his side arm exchanger would not do the job - he said I would have to leave my hot water heater running. Now I have all the hot water I need without running out, and can turn gas off while furnace is running.
