Alright everyone. I have not posted here yet but i should have a while back considering how much i actually stay independent from Government handled resources.
Several years ago My family and i invested in what is called a Legend woodstove(or waterstove) which was developed by a man who use to work for the Taylor woodstove(waterstove) company. Now im not trying to advertise them or anything, they are just the only two waterstove companies i know of.
Anyway the woodstove cost us about 5000 dollars and here is how it works: A large woodstove body (36 inches wide by 40 inches deep i think) is surrounded by a tank of water that it heats up as it burns. Inside this water tank are Heat exchange coils that are hollow and allow water to pas through them. As the water goes through the hot water outside of the coils transfers heat to the water in the coils.
Next the water travels back to our house where it is stored in a hot water tank, The water inside the tank is constantly run back to the stove to reheat as you use hot water. The hot water also runs to our central heating and air and is used on a reverse radiator system that blows air through a grid that has the hot water running through it thus producing hot air.
Basically, instead of burning a fossil fuel which is NOT carbon neutral we burn wood which IS carbon neutral. We only use dead wood, never cutting down living trees.
So in not having to spend money on Oil to heat our home, or electricity the woodstove will have paid for itself by this coming spring.
Any thoughts or questions?
