Hi, i currently have oil heating in my home but i'm now going to put in a stove with back boiler. is it possible to use to 2 o/p's from back boiler to connnect to one coil in h/w cylinder(oil heating other coil) and use the other 2 outputs of the back boiler to connect to my raditors?(in conjunction with the oil heating the rads). I've seen something similar with 1 gravity radiator but i wish to connect all radiators. Does this make sense or am i missing something? Any help appreciated.
I connected a oil boiler in tandem with an Aga many years ago, and I believe it is still in use.
Realistically, the back boiler probably won't have much capacity other than to supply hot water. I assume the stove is solid fuel? If so the it can only have a gravity type system. This is because if the pump was to fail (power cut say), the water could boil. Consideration must be given to this possibility anyway.
I don't think this is a system that can be just put together without proper consideration to design and safety.
