Was wondering if you only support the firebox by welding it to your fuel tank on the end that sticks out? Otherwise, I would just bypass the oil boiler altogether like many of the diagrams show on this forum. Tied this one into our existing ductwork and it supplies a steady current of warm air, keeping our house quite comfortable. My only advice is to make sure you hook up the combustion air inlet up to outside air. All Hardy units have a 304 stainless steel firebox. As the heater has a primary heat in five models - x jpeg.
The skills and knowledge necessary to install this boiler was gained from YouTube videos, online tutorials and forums. A typical basement slab is 4 inches thick. Install the braces as shown above. Yes, I have an a coil in the plenum above the furnace. Yes This house has a dump zone with a normally closed zone valve so as to open if it looses power and I had to run a min. The ideal water level is at the beginning of a heating cycle for the level indicator to be at the bottom of the rubber cap. The extra outlet will provide a total of 10amps for convenience use.
See controls section for an electrical diagram. Wait, that doesn't sound right. Insert a clear pipe in a 5-gallon bucket fro the drain valve. This is what constitutes your sub-floor. I simply installed a baseboard heater thermostat to the small pump. The ditch needs to be below your local frost line.
Going down the steps in the basement to check the temp on the oil burner aquastat doesnt cut it. Now like I said, a fan control center will do the trick, regardless of some dumb limit switch! This gives you more heat between the joists and better heat distribution than a single run of pipe. I have now thrown the breaker and disconnected the Y on the main thermostat. Both the condenser and the furnace fan have never come on together before. In the basement it usually gets above 80 degrees that transmitts to keeping the above floor in the range of about 70F with no extra use of power from the furnace fan. Thus standby losses up the flue although I doubt they are that great. Find a wire to connect my outdoor wood furnace.
If all looks good, you can seal off the ends of the heat exchanger and the hole you made in the plenum with foil tape made for ductwork. My parents will live in the attached apartment to my house 1000 Sq ft and called zone 1 and my house 1900 sq ft and zone 2 will use heat from one line of the furnace and another building has line 2 to heat about 1500 sqft. Cover bottom access holes as well. The lack of answers to these 2 questions is what prompted me to run directly through oil boiler. Therefore, to make this task practical, the wood stove must be located adjacent to the furnace so that the fan can supply the plenum with heated air. This eliminates heat going up to the ceiling and out the roof where it is ultimately lost. The hot line and cold return line enters at near floor level in the basement which makes for a very low 'lift' that the inside basement pump can handle to distribute the 170 F degree water heated by wood outside.
I also included some relay control to prevent oil boiler from ever firing if wood boiler is circulating to oil boiler. The pump on the furnace pumps water through a plate exchanger and then it goes to your heat exchanger in your ductwork, before going back to the furnace to be reheated. Cut the lines at the top and bottom of the plenum, usually 4 inches long the width of the heat exchanger. Input lines should be at the bottom inlet unless otherwise marked. The warmth is greater at floor level and decreases as it reaches the ceiling. You want to bolt the hinges on so you can adjust them.
The one I installed along with my propane boiler was a Kerr wood fired boiler. See maintenance section for complete adjustment and care instructions. Water is circulated through special tubing, called , that runs under the floor. With an Ohmmeter you dont need an instruction book, you need to find terminals that make contact when you move the lever above room temp. With it powered up jump between the R and G terminals, with a length of wire, you can do it holding the wire with your fingers, low voltage.
When the furnace is hot, it'll assist the water heater. The hot water line is a foot above floor level that enters the hot water heat exchanger. The depth of the trench varies in different regions of the country. I am concerned about going over a delta T of 20 degrees without a bypass to the return to temper the water going to the boiler. The extra bit I did when a new addition was put on, was to install under floor heating of part of the basement with water flowing lines from the hot wood furnace burning outside boiler. As the fuel burns, the heat or energy is transferred through the firebox metal to the water in the surrounding water jacket.
Product information and a second thermostat. Hydronic radiant heating with a wood stove is definitely a viable option to heat your space! In less than a week I am ripping it back out, and taking it to get my money back. Now drill and tap the shaft for machine screws. I see no reason though the blower would need a separate aquastat. Randy can provide custom diagrams for other types of control setups as well upon request. Bleeding a Heat Exchanger You need to have two cut-off valves in the return line - one with a drain.
