    Starting our second Effecta install, The tank went in today 41" 1000gal propane tank
    had to put through a 45" door, everything went as planned, will post more pics as the install
    continues. Will be a forced air setup at the moment, with plans for baseboard and in floor
    heat at a later date.

    Looks like you have a nice big boiler room. Nice to have that machinery to move the tanks around. Are you plumping with copper or black iron. Lots of work .
    How are you insulating the tanks.

    We will use mostly copper$$$, We used supper Tuff-R on my effecta system, I like to take a panal off to show somone that has an intriest, I dont like foam spray to cover the tank. I will keep picks of the progress as we go.
    Bill,

    Looks like you are doing a great job. Is that a bladder expansion tank? Randy

    Bill,

    Glad to see ANOTHER effecta lambda 35kw system being installed. Doesn't that make (3) in East Jordan, MI alone?

    Those 1,000 gallon propane tanks are a bear to handle but with the proper equipment it's quite easy (WHERE THERE'S A WILL......THERE'S AS WAY!)

    No one can argue that this is probably one of the best recycling efforts occurring today (taking an old, obsolete 1,800 lb, 250 psi @ 650 F pressure vessel and using it to accumulate and store 130-200F water at 15-20 psi).

    Can't wait to see photos of the entire setup as it is being installed.

    Keep us posted on your nice work!

    Brian

    Regarding my user name, NO, we did not lose our agent status.

    That statement couldn't be further from the truth - we have 13 effecta boilers (and 13 very happy customers) in North America and are working on the next order of boilers.

    The reason for the name change came at the request of the higher powers at hearth.com

    Thank You,
    It has been quite the learning experience so far, I'm by no means versed in Boiler systems, however i have been using wood stoves for awhile. The first time i watched Bill fire up his Effecta 35 i was completely amazed.. I never could imagine burning wood as being so easy and hassle free. I probably spent about 1-2 hrs a day just feeding and meddling with my woodstove, burned over 26 cord a winter on a house that was 1400 sq. feet.. Really??? you might ask yourself... The sad truth is yes.. ha. Recently my wife and I bought a new home, much larger, and i am so completely stoked to be working on the new Effecta 35 w/1000 gallons instead of some other yard smoker that so many around here have. But the Good news is that this will make 3, ya 3 Effecta 35's in East Jordan, MI.. that's pretty awesome.

    26 cord? Really.

    Unless your definition of a cord is different than mine I don't see how you could burn that much in one stove in a year. When I burned 24/7 in my jotul f600 I went through at most five cord.
