    It is possible to do it that way, but I like a little time to myself while I am home. Besides the boiler gets lonely!

    That don't sound any easier to light than mine or the rest of the boilers out there.

    The way you said it I took it as you was impressed by that. Sounds like a normal day in the office. No I don't think anyone has made that actual claim.

    I would think you would elimenate those plugs and hard wire the system with a disconnect switch.

    Lol. There are few Effecta owners out there, and I think it is great if we have the owners speak on behalf of their system/setup and show it. I feel this can let a good product become well known.
    Please keep sharing any info you may have.

    Do you get much or any heat loss off the storage tanks through the foam insulation?

    Not alot, about 3" over almost all of the tanks. There are a couple areas that need a little more but I think it is working pretty well. I do wish tanks where in the house but I have only a crawl under the house. ( home is less than 125' from lakeshore) Sure there are somethings that can be tweeked but system is up and working well!

    Nice setup!

    Also curious about the foam, is it nonflammable? I thought spray foam needed to be covered?

    I also thought the foam was flamable ? If so that looks like a fire waiting to happen and I'm not talking in the boiler.

    Looks like exposed foam is SOP with Effecta.

  20. Here in Maine any foam in the building must have a fire rated covering. Sheetrock or intumescent paint are the most common.

    Hey Bill1472, your missing the sprayfoam in your installation. That storage could probably use it.

    Looks great otherwise, wish I could swing that type of heat system.

    Couple more photos of the setup,

    I built the Insulating box out or tuff-R, looks like blue board but is
    a totally different material, 1 1/2 Foil Backed. The sides are removable so that people can see how the setup
    works. Insulates well when the tanks are 190 degrees inside,
    the walls are room temp on the outside, The board is not cheap but works real well
    about $50 a sheet.
