That would have been fine....I love to bicycle. Power went out at 7AM, I hadn't showered yet, went downstairs and grabbed my UPS off the NAS server, carried it up and plugged the stoker into it. Nuthin...nada...zip...UPS wouldn't power up. Even though it had been powering my server just seconds before, it refused to light up so the stoker went cold. Just bugged me. Got to work late, late for meetings, just a bad start to the day...had to play an extra 15 minutes of Counter Strike at lunch and massacre more of my co-workers...that made me feel better...until someone sniped me :)

I did take the opportunity to clean the stove. Not much to clean really. Found out I can light it in about 1 minute with a Mapp gas torch. Made a little pile of coal, hit it with the torch for about 1 minute with the fan on, closed the door. Came back about 5 minutes later and threw a little shovel full of coal on the pile...did it again in another 5 minutes and viola! Been burning ever since and no sooted up glass from the mouse thingy.

If you heat domestic hot water with a indirect hot water heater you don't add the additional load from the water. The hot water heater just becomes another zone, one with a priority controller. There are several ways to wire it but one way is to give priority to making hot water. You stop heating your house or a portion of it and heat up the domestic water tank first. This only takes a 10+ minutes because all your boiler heat is just making domestic hot water. Then you switch to heating your house. A system like this works well because you are not oversizing the boiler. Most boilers are most efficient, hence most economical, when they are operating at near capacity. I've said it before don't oversize. Let your existing non-coal fueled boiler provide the extra heat needed on the rare once or twice a season extra cold day.

The AA130 or AhS 130 . Would probably do it . The EFM definatly would be a good choice as well because of its flexability in BTUs . Dave
