Stoker in Garage???

Stoker in Garage???

PostBy: Timsa20 On: Fri May 12, 2006 8:16 am

Hi again,
As I've been reading other posts, someone mentioned putting a stoker in their garage. Sounds like a great idea. I'm building a 2-car with an attached wood working shop and need some heat for the shop as well as the house. Could I install a stoker in the garage/shop and and feed the house's forced hot water heating system AND my domestic hot water AND heat my swimming pool some how?

If I'm putting a stoker in the garage/shop, should I be looking at a stoker furnace (like you'd install in the basement of a home?) or should I be considering one of the "out door" units that I could chimney out of the shop?

Thanks... everything posted here is VERY helpfull... you folks are gems!

One topic for the same questions is enough. Two topics usually leads to confusion as someone may have already answered the question, or you have other questions.. etc. I'm sure you get the idea. I'm going to lock this, if nyone wants to answer the origianl thread can be found here:
