    Question:

    I'm looking for a source for a wood stove/boiler to install in an outbuilding which will generate hot water to heat my house even without power. It must be gravity return convection forced into the house. I need specifications and installation requirements as well to see if this plan is practical. There are several nice external stoves on the market but all require power.



    Answer:

    Hot water rises. Unless you have the unit BELOW the radiators that you wish to heat, it will be very difficult to use natural convection to move the water. I know of no sources that would have such a plan
