/ What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today? #2,341
Insurance wants 30'. On a diagonal that's what I have, also for Aesthetics, and having the door face north that was my best option. Actual trench length is about 40' so I not to worried about heat loss.Why so far away from the house?
Seems like a lot of heat loss. And a lot of cold air to trudge through to add fuel.
Smokes not bad if you burn dry wood. Of course some people cut Saturday and burn all week.Don't know this case, but in town where I used to live they basically banned them because the smoke was so bad. They OK'd them as long as your chimney was higher than the roof on your house.
With the lines insulated and buried there will be next to nothing in heat loss.
Outdoor wood burning furnace. Water tank surrounds the firebox. Fire heats the water, then in my set up the pump sends 180° water to water coil in my hvac duct work. When my indoor thermostat calls for heat my indoor furnace fan comes on and blows across the water coil providing my home heat. The Hardy has an aqua Stat that turns on a draft fan to keep the water in the tank heated via the fire. There is also a coil of copper the tank that is hooked to my domestic hot water heater and as long as I have fire I have hot water.This is a new concept for me. I have never heard of these things before. What is it exactly?
This is what I assume (without googling things): It burns wood to heat water that is pumped into the home for radiators to heat the house? Or its used to heat water in place of a hot water heater?
