    NW Oregon...near Banks
    We have a nine year old Taylor (no, our house isn't on fire... it's the Taylor starting up...) that provides hot water for radiant floor heat and domestic hot water in our 3000 foot home in NW Oregon. We use cured Douglas fir from our woodlot, but cutting 10 cords a year is getting old. We are considering upgrading to a gasification unit in 3-5 years, but in the interim would like input from forum members about the benefit/liability of installing a 500 to 1000 gallon storage tank. Seems like this would allow the Taylor to run at full blast until the storage reached 180 degrees, allowing us to "live" off the stored heat for a day or so. Comments, ladies and gentlemen? :question:
