HYFIRE II INSTALL

PostBy: Hot Rocks On: Sun Jul 11, 2010 9:36 am

Picked up new stove on saturday, I have some other projects going on right now so the install will be slow, I will keep you posted maybe some pictures, I know how much everyone likes pictures.My setup is 1420 sf unfinished basement,1420 sf 1st floor, 770 sf 2nd floor, 22 year old house, 2x4 walls r-19 insulation lots of windows, r-49 in ceiling. Stove will be in basement with heat jacket, 14 inch duct going into cold air return on furnace (heat pump). I am going to be able to control or close any of the cold air returns.That will be trial & error,example 2nd floor returns open, 1st floor returns closed, basement door open. Coal-trol t-stat will be on 1st floor 40 feet away from stove. Will have a fan limit switch to control furnace fan. The stove has a 21-t double loop coil , I will have 2 tanks 50 gal. each about 10 feet away they will be elevated, the system will thermosyphon,I will also use a 007 circulator on a wall switch running 24/7. I will be able to draw or return water to ether tank

Wow are you going to make some hot water with that thing. Especially if both burners are running.

Do you have a way to dump excess heat from the water. I have a single loop coil and a single burner and do occasionally pop the relief valve. I believe your setup is going to need it. Very nice job.

When I had my stove with a coil . I just used a 6' base board heater and a good quality mixing valve .When the water went above 150 -160 it would circ through the baseboard . Worked well , cannot remember the exact layout but it was somehow paralleled in .Dave
