Wood Burner with back boiler

Postby ukwebfx » Sun Sep 28, 2008 8:35 pm


I am building a new house and haveing a solar hot water system installed. its will have a hot water tank with a second coil to connect another heat source to. I want to connect a wood burner to the second coil to heat the tank in the winter and also run abotu 10 rads. The problem i have is its an unvented system and wonder if i can install an expession vessel within a few meters of the wood burner. The hot water tank will be located 1m behind the log burner and about 1 m off the ground, so hope this will allow for gravity feeding when the punp is off. Any help would be great

Thanks :roll:
