Wood fired stoves are a popular 'off the grid' hydronic heating system, an economic and cost effective option for regional projects where wood is freely available. Typically installed in remote areas where gas and electricity is limited.
It is required that the wood fired stove has an inbuilt water jacket or 'wet back'. There are many wood fired stoves that are suitable for this installation.
The heat output of a wood stove is unregulated so requires a suitably sized storage tank. The tank is required to be open style with a header tank.
Wood fired stove installations require a storage tank, header tank, mixing pump station and manifold. Your heated floor area will define the required storage tank size. The minimum size tank required is 400L+
These specifications are based on a stand alone hydronic floor heating system. If you are interested in a mixed system that combines domestic hot water or pool heating, please contact our office for more details.
