Looking for some advice on which direction to go for a wood boiler at my new home. I heated my 1150 sqft cape for 5 years with a fireplace insert and want to step up to a boiler at the new place. It is a 2430 sq ft colonial built in 2008. 17 wooded acres to pull from so wood supply isn't to much of an issue (though time spent processing is to an extent). The house is currently heated with baseboard and a Buderus oil boiler. Hot water also come from this unit and there is a 53 gallon storage tank. It is supposed to be super efficient and has some high tech computer computer on it so I am ok running it during the summer for hot water I'm open to any options and have been reading this forum for yearrs for ideas. It seems like a gasification unit is the way to go. I'd love to have an outdoor setup to keep the mess from wood outside and maintain basement space, but it seems like indoor with storage is more efficient nd the preferred setup. Will the difference be huge? Can you get away with one hot fire a day like you can with some of the indoor setupd with storage? Budget is not the biggest concern but I'm probably not looking to blow the bank on something super high end like a garn or a froling. Is one option generally cheaper than the other? Is there an outdoor setup worth considering or should I focus on an indoor setup with storage? Is there a combination to consider? An outdoor unit with indoor storage? and indoor unit in an outbuildng? Also any recommendations for an installer/plumber in the Connecticut/ Rhode Island/ Massachusetts areas? Thanks guys, looking forward to the discussion.
