Hello, I am in the early phase of building a house, and learning about wood gasification boilers. The house: 1280 sq/ft daylight basement with 1/2" pex through slab. Slab is on 2" foam board and footings are insulated. 1280 sq/ft Main floor with 70% hardwood and 30% tile (plan to go with proper staple up, due to cost of Warmboard...) 900 sq/ft loft (not sure if this needs a staple up zone? Seems it would always stay warm) The house is not built yet, but I plan to insulate it as efficiently as possible - it won't be super insulated, but "good". There will be some large picture windows in one room and the main floor open to the loft causing a tall ceiling. Picture a tall house with a 32' X 40' foot print Attached garage 1,200 sq/ft - only needs to be kept above freezing The Plan: Garn Jr. with 33kw electric unit installed for back up (electric is cheap here). the unit would be placed in the attached garage and insulated very well. Zone 1: Basement Circuit using low temp through concrete, 1/2" pex 1' centers Zone 2: Main floor, higher temp 130-140f using staple up under hardwood floor, 2 runs/joist (insulated underneath) Zone 3: Garage circuit, low temp through garage floor 1/2" pex 2' centers, this zone would be ran to keep the garage above freezing only. The situation: I own a tree care company that produces more wood than I can possibly burn. I also work 30 minutes from this house, so I don't want to feed a stove during the day. My hope is that I can burn once in the morning and once in the evening for most of the winter. On really cold days (-20f or less ) this might change to 3 times per day and the electric can pick up my slack. I'm not too concerned about the total amount of wood used - more the hassle of feeding and lighting fires all the time, and my wife/daughters feeling comfortable and complaining less Also - the electric would have to keep the entire house above freezing during vacations. The Question: Is this unit feasible for what I'm trying to do? Are there better options? I understand there a thousand calculations and pieces of information that one might need, but what does real world experience tell you about a Garn Jr. working in an application like this?
