    So many water/convective stoves in Europe. Few I can find in the US.

    Our home has hydronic radiant concrete slabs and a low design heat load(23,000Btu/hour @ 0::F). This Walltherm product is ideal. However, the price places it in a category that isn't near competitive with our current options.

    I suppose there are not enough small heat load hydronic installations stateside for a native manufacturer to profitably sell a small water/convective stove. An inexpensive water/convective stove would be a great fit in my home. Currently, if the hydronic floor is not used, the stand alone stove heats the house. Works fine, but the ideal arrangement would keep the floor system warm and have the hot stove to gather around.

    I heard that Effecta is coming out with a smaller boiler later this year. I think it was 25000 btu or so.

    check out hydrotoheatconvertor.com, He has a nice selection of stoves that will do that sort of heat loss, and aren't the price of that gassifier. he's the distributor of that gassifier too.
    the difference is going to come in the balance of system to move the heat around like you want.
    my place is similar heat losses, and I'm waiting for a while, and then putting in an effecta to heat 2 houses and a shop.

    Karl, Thanks for the link. Looks like the output and balance would work well. The units look good. The stand alone stoves are priced ~$5,000 and up. The gasser is ~$1,500 more. I think we will wait to see how the market develops. Thanks again, Jim
