    I'm looking to gasify and want to make sure an indoor boiler is OK with my insurance company. I'm checking with my agent right now, and if they say no I'll likely switch to a company that allows indoor boilers. My question is, if you have an indoor boiler, which company do you use?

    Thanks.

    I use Met. When I called them about installing a boiler they said that since I was already paying a 5% surcharge for my wood burning stove I was all set. In other words they allow them but charge an extra 5%.

    I used to have an indoor woodburner and Farm Bureau Ins. didn't have a surcharge on a correct installation. Now I have an OWB and Wolverine Ins. They have a surcharge on any indoor installation. I'm in Indiana, don't know what's available in your location.

    I think mine is Kemper. They want to know about the heat source, but there's no surcharge or other requirements.
