I have been thinking a lot lately about a different heating system here. I now have a Aquatherm outdoor wood eater and I am thinking of trying to sell it as I have used it for about 5 years and have burned up my "free" wood. Our house can be heated with our fireplace insert and it does a great job keeping up if we keep up with it. The boiler heats a 1000 sqft dog kennel and also our 2000 sqft house if we don't burn our insert. It does a good job just eats the wood at a pace that I think could be reduced with different options. I have thought of a gasser but storage is an issue and a Garn with built in is a little too much cash. So what i am thinking is a wood furnace like the new Napoleon for the kennel or even a good wood stove like the Blazeking for out there to keep the dogs warm and using the wood sipping insert in the house with a little more labor from us to keep it warm. Being the type that hates wasted time, money and effort is there any other option with all the underground well insulated pex that I put in and all the pumps, piping, and labor that went into this system to try something else? My wife has had it with me talking about wood supply and I hate burning unseasoned wood at the end of the year like now. A 12 cord of wood goes every year and I think I could cut that in half if without the old boiler and using seasoned wood in a better stove. Burning free wood I did not think too much about how much I was tossing in this thing but now that I bought a load I am thinking while the saw is cutting. The kennel is a HX with forced air and so is the house and I think I am not doing this right with the warm water thing.
