Hello forum members! My husband and I have recently purchased a home which uses an outdoor wood boiler as a primary heat source and propane as a back up. We are approaching our first season here using the wood boiler and we are entirely new to using one. Heating is currently provided for the home, garage and water heater in the home, with propane taking up the water heating needs in the warmer months. My question is... will we use less wood for heating if we opt to eliminate heating the garage, or would we still use the same amount of wood regardless? We are trying to decide if we should plan to shut off garage heat for the winter as we are not likely to really need it, but if it's going to use the same wood regardless, then it shouldn't matter for us either way. Thank you in advance for any information you can offer here. As total newbies to using wood as a heat source, we are looking forward to feedback.
