    My wheels are always spinning. I was just curious. Sounds like you should get plenty of air to the intake if the air is moving in the building.

    I went down to the Town Hall. Last year I spoke to the head plans examiner, this time I spoke to the head building inspector.
    He also knows from my business.

    I said " Last year I spoke to the head plans examiner and he said I don't need a permit but I want to double check with you. I installed a solid wood burning hydronic heater in conjunction with the existing oil burner. Do I need a permit? "
    His first response was "Huh? What are you talking about?"
    I gave him a brief description.
    He said, " NO....well maybe if I dig deep in the code book there might be something but I don't think is necessary it's just a supplemental system add on"
    He continued with " You may need a plumbing permit since you hooked up water but really I wouldn't bother"
    I said "Could I get that in writing in case I have a problem with a neighbor or want to sell the house"

    He laughed and said "C'mon Mike you know thats not how we operate, ha ha ha ha."

    So basically even though he said NO and It's not necessary, he could back peddle real fast if push came to shove.
    I love the political BS.:mad:

    Easy solution...get the permit and have him inspect it...I am sure the town with take your money then you have it " in writing"

    Get a plumbing permit for the plumbing. Get an electrical permit for the electric. Get a building permit for the chimney.
