105,000 btus. A calc i did on the home came up with 80,000 needed to heat it. if it were in the basement, I wouldnt need to heat the basement, just the oil boiler system to heat the house via hydronics, so all the heat could go to that.
My thought now was to add a coil or 2, bring up a loop to the stove and down to the basement to a tank and circulate water to a 60 or 80 gallon holding tank for DHW. I'd use the stove on the first floor living area to heat that floor and hopefully the upper floor. this would enable me to not use any oil this winter, or very little if the DHW demanded it.
surprised would be ok if i can just close the loop for DHW and not use it and use oil this year, if the stove couldnt handle that. cold and unhappy the wife wouldnt tolerate, however
Got in touch with keystoker, the vent being 3' from an inside corner rule is for an L shaped home, the 'inside' OUTDOOR corner, reason being the wind currents that can be generated in that space. i thought they meant from the inside of the home, i feel like such a newb now!
